If you like tortilla-wrapped carnitas, lengua, and asada, then you surely know El Tonayense, the taco truck that lures hungry customers to its post by John O’Connell High School. And you may have been following its travails with an ordinance banning food trucks from proximity of schools on Mission Loc@l. Well, according to Burrito Justice, which first raised the issue to our attention, the popular business may or may not have a hearing this week regarding its status.
Mission Loc@l will try to get to the bottom of the issue. In the meantime, to get your burrito justice, stop by the truck on 22nd and Harrison for tacos that have inspired poetry and allowed poor folk like artists and journalists to live like kings on a $6 dinner.
Hats off to local trio Mi Ami, whose new 12″, “Echonoecho” got a shoutout in this Sunday’s New York Times. While you’re waiting for the psycho-afro-punk-jazz group to return from their world tour, you might want to try Aquarius Records on Valencia for the vinyl.

Expect more on youth health on Mission Loc@l pronto.
