Eat the Menu: The Shirt!

This is part of a series about my quest to try all of the yumminess at local restaurant Tacodeli. See my eat the menu tag for the other parts of the series. Scores are summarized here.

Thursday night, this crazy journey reached its end. We had a "Jon the Geek Week Wrap Party" at Tacodeli (open after its usual hours to give us some more of those delicious Jon the Geek Week Specials). The tacos were great, but the best part was the official introduction of the award for the first 24 people to complete an Eat the Menu Card: the "I Ate the Menu at Tacodeli" t-shirt! I got the first copy of this limited run. My favorite part is on the middle of line 6.

I know one person was already at 12 on Thursday, but I think there's still time for the less-obsessed to make it into the "I Ate the Menu" club. Eat the Menu cards are available at all three Tacodeli locations.

On a related note, a my sister's friend Maria made some tasty-sounding Vegetable Mole Tacos inspired by this experience (and the yumminess she experienced at Tacodeli). I can't wait to try out her recipe!

How close is everyone to eating the menu? I'm not making much progress on my second time through (the Portabella Mole slowed my progress), so SURELY people will make it through their first time before I make it through my second time, right?

That's so cool - I hadn't noticed YOUR taco is on here when I saw this photo tweeted. NICE! So I've only got 5 stars on my card right now - I've got a ways to go!!
