There is a change amongst us. Socks, sleeves, and wallets grow smaller. Eyes, cleavage, and libido grow larger. Your consumption rate stays in the middle as it always has but we won’t tell anyone. Friends, spring is here and we can think of no better way to celebrate summer dresses and short shorts than to help you put a little more junk into that metaphorical trunk. It is with the utmost stoked-ness that we deliver to you this message: TACOS!!
On May the 10th, for the first time in documented history Toronto taco tyrants La Carnita will be swinging their cilantro inside the confines of Babylon Nightclub for an evening of contemporary takes on Mexico’s most celebrated street foods. Much like GRILLZ N’ GLAM, La Carnita also sits heavy on the hip hop influence as they commission Djs to provide the mixtape soundtrack for the restaurant and much to the affection of rap lovers everywhere, they serve 40s of Old English. In a paper bag.
