ANOTHER YEAR OF THE TACO LIFESTYLE STRAIGHT FROM THE STREETS OF LOS ANGELES. STREET FOOD, STREET ART, INTERESTING PEOPLE… THIS YEAR THE THEME SEEMED TO BE PHOTOGRAPHY AND PHOTOGRAPHERS– WE PUBLISHED MORE ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHY THAN EVER, INTERVIEWED A BUNCH OF OUR FAVORITE PHOTOGRAPHERS, AND GENERALLY REVELED IN BEAUTIFUL IMAGES OF PEOPLE, PLACES, AND TACOS. WE ALSO GOT MULTI MEDIA WITH OUR FIRST VIDEO SERIES (TACO TRUCK CONFESSIONS). OVERALL IT WAS A PRETTY GOOD YEAR.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO AGREED TO BE INTERVIEWED, OR SENT US PHOTOS, MADE ART FOR US, OR SUPPORTED US IN ANY WAY AT ALL.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR CONTRIBUTORS WHO MADE THIS HAPPEN, ESPECIALLY ERWIN & DESILU.

HUGEST THANKS OF ALL TO OUR LOYAL READERS, THE ONES THAT CHECK IN EVERY WEEK TO SEE WHAT WE HAVE GOING ON. THIS WAS THE 10th YEAR IN EXISTENCE FOR THIS BLOG AND TO CELEBRATE WE DID A COMPLETE REDESIGN, WHICH WE HOPE YOU LIKE AND APPRECIATE FOR ITS ABILITY TO BETTER SHOW OFF THE REASONS THAT MAKE LIVING IN LOS ANGELES SO AMAZING…
