I finally got to shake hands with Jim—the bald, mustachioed co-owner of El Pelón Taqueria—at a neighborhood meeting tonight. He wants everyone to know that the restaurant is committed to re-opening in the same location as soon as possible. And while that may mean waiting until 2010, he assured me that my fully-punched frequent burrito card will still be honored.

As we were talking, I realized that he is the face on the front of my t-shirt. How weird is that?
