The Original Donut Shop


I've heard that laughter before, the way they spoke behind the counter while making the orders in front of them. It wasn't necessarily the actual conversation being spoken, but the way they were speaking it. The cadence in their speech, the words being used, the cackle of their belly laughs, it was all so familiar. It trailed into the dinning room where I waited at my table for my number to be shouted out from behind that counter.

The Original Donut Shop is as close to home as I think I can possibly get in a taco shop. Not only do the awesome workers there remind me of all my tia's(aunt's) and prima's(female cousin's) all rolled into one group of hard working mujeres(women) having fun while cooking, the tacos are made in a way that made me miss those days of coming home to my mom's quick on-the-fly quesadillas or bean burritos late at night. 

Their toasted bean & cheese taco is my new favorite taco in all of San Antonio. I wouldn't say it's the most amazing taco my taste buds have ever had the pleasure of tasting, it's just old school good. Nostalgic good. Grandma "Dejale hago algo de comer" good (let me make you something to eat real quick). I highly recommend it and just about any other of the tacos they sell there. 

Oh and by the way, they sell donuts there too.

#ProTip: It's cash only and closes at 2PM. They have two drive thru's, so make sure you get in the correct drive thru because they won't sell taco's out of their donut line nor will they sell donuts out of their taco line.

Chicano Batman Shirt


Such a dope shirt (and by shirt I mean logo). It's a combination of the United Farm Workers Union's iconic logo and of course Batman's iconic logo. Genius! Now if only they made a 3XL (#TallPeopleProblems). If you've never heard of them, I'll let their bio on their website speak for itself:


Chicano Batman (Los Angeles, CA) is your sonic outlet from monotony back into the soul. Ethnomusicologists in their own right, they are students of rhythm, globe trotting on a quest to reclaim and represent the musical roots of their past generations. The band’s sound draws from a broad spectrum of influences ranging from 60s Tropicalia, samba, spacey psychedelia, to slow-jam soul with a pinch of surf-rock cumbia. In homage to their favorite Latin American soul groups of the 70s, the quartet uniforms their act in retro ruffled-tuxedo shirts from a thrift store near you. Chicano Batman is more than a musical entity but an adventurous and opinionated group, who feeds off of community, afro-centricity and bolillos, on a mission to bring the overlooked to the forefront.

From Dusk Til Dawn Future Season Idea

The Culebra vampire take on Mayan/Aztec serpent worshipping, disguised as a cartel is pretty genius. Thanks for making that into a show Señor Rodriguez and El Rey Network.

I had an idea for something that, in my opinion, would be an interesting concept to introduce into this already awesome show. The introduction of  Jaguar Warriors and Zapatistas, who happen to be one and the same.
