Oct. 4 is National Taco Day — as if you needed another excuse to go to your local taqueria. It is also National Vodka Day, says the Washington Post.

“The billion-dollar industry can be attributed to the Latino population growth but also to the popularity of Mexican food. Ethnic fast-food restaurants, such as Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, Chipotle Mexican Grill, and Qdoba Mexican Grill offering burritos, tacos, and quesadillas, also are driving the sales nationwide.”
