Cafe Maya Jazzes It Up

Add a swinging Saturday to Margarita Monday, Taco Tuesday, Humpday Happy Hour—not to mention the monthly first Tuesday $1 margarita night—at Café Maya Mexican Kitchen and Cantina. Tomorrow, Saturday, Aug. 25, owner Sergio Pinto will welcome the Magia Negra Latin Jazz Trio.

The first ivories will be tickled by Magia Negra’s pianist/vocalist Miriam Hernandez at 9 p.m. The last chord will be played at 1 a.m., with bandmates Young Heo on bass and Lamont Taylor on drums.

While you’re in the house, fire it up with a cochnita pibil doused with the off-menu habanero salsa, then cool down with a mango mojito.

The Great Taco Run Goes the Tortilla Course

Presented by area sports store Luke’s Locker and benefiting the Trinity Strand and Katy Trail, the race will be separated into 5K, 10K and 10-mile lengths, all finishing at the Runners Village at Museum Way and Victory Avenue, near the American Airlines Center, where several taco vendors will be serving up their signature fare beginning at 8:30 a.m. Participants will be able to vote for their favorite taco vendor while a panel of judges will choose theirs. The winners will be announced on National Taco Day, Thursday, Oct. 4. Continue reading

Rock and Roll Tacos to Serve Funday Sunday Brunch

Brunch is for lushes, the ones who power through the burn with copious amounts of potent hair of the dog and hearty fare to soak up the previous night’s impaired judgment. (OK, maybe not solely for the hungover.) What your average brunch menu doesn’t list, though, is a legendary hangover cure: Menudo, a Mexican specialty of stomach in clear or red broth.

Rock and Roll Tacos is coming to the rescue for those folk who’ve been quietly wishing for a bowl of the stuff to slurp away the booze but haven’t dared to travel outside the usual circuit when the food truck’s kitchen in LaGrange begins brunch service, June 10. They’re calling it Funday Sunday Brunch and will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Continue reading
