NYChar Lunch 1/17 - $1 Tacos!

Woo-hoo, let's make some lunch plans!  How do $1 tacos (normally $12!) at Mayahuel sound?  I don't know, but it's a delicious deal!  The restaurant doesn't take reservations or parties larger than 8, so we can try our luck and hope there isn't a line.  Who's in??: )

From's Weekender post:

Dollar Menu

$1 Tacos at Mayahuel

Sundays - 304 E Sixth St (at Second Ave) - 212-253-5888

The East Village tequila den inaugurates $1 taco Sundays by practically giving away chicken, pork or chorizo soft tacos topped with cilantro, radishes and lime, which usually cost 12 bucks. It's the most encouraging instance of taco-based reverse inflation we've yet come across.

Get NYCultured! 3 Cool Art Exhibitions

Here are 3 interesting and FREE exhibitions around NYC that I want to see!

  • Hyper by French photographer Denis Darzacq @ Laurence Miller Gallery [20 W 57th bet 5th and 6th] - Until April 26, Open daily until 530p - Colorful photos of people suspended in air at a French supermarket, fun!

  • Public Art Fund's Double Take @ BK - Flatbush + Myrtle Ave - Until Sept 2010 - yep, it's a slanting light pole, plus other public art pieces that will make you look twice!

1/16 - Come to The Engadget Show, fresh from CES!

For lovers of the latest in technology and consumer electronics (i.e. CES 2010) or those who don't really know much but are up for a new experience (yes, that would be me, as always: ), come to the FREE taping of The Engadget Show, this Sat 1/16!!

This taping will ft. Erick Tseng from Google, Sr. Product Manager for Android, plus a wrap-up of the cool gizmo and gadgets from CES, AND (my favorite) they are "giving away a bunch of stuff", which is enough reason for me to go in itself haha.

Ok, the important info: TICKETS - 2 options!

  1. Go to the Times Center (41st bet 7th and 8th Ave) @ 2p, when ticketing will start, first come first serve.  You should prob get there by 1p though, because there will surely be a line.
  2. Sprint is giving away 50 guaranteed seats via email or text entry!  For the first 50 people, so do it quick - "ENGADGET" to 467467.  Greg R. (thanks for the heads up about the event!) and I got ours this morning, and it ends tomorrow 1/15, so you still have a shot!

Time for some CES studying...look out for a recap and pics afterwards!
