Nobody wants you... like I do

This week, I finally went out to see the Kogi taco truck and give it a try. I mean, no, I don't have twitter, but I've been checking out their blog. I've had two very different experiences. The first time, we arrived and the truck was already parked. The line wasn't long. Everyone was on time. It ran smoothly. Except it started raining and got cold quickly. I'd say a total of about an hour wait. Our second experience felt more like a wild goose chase. We got there early because you know, people start lining up before the truck even gets there. No one was there. I checked their twitter because I didn't sign up to get automatic updates. At first, it was cancelled, then it said they'd be there at 9:45 (original ETA was 8:30). So we went over to In-n-Out, had fries, milkshake, and coffee. We went back at 9:45ish and there were people lined up already. We all stood there in the freezing cold. Twitter said they were running late and the new ETA was now 10:40. Some people left because they were too hungry, some were too cold. A lot of us braved it through and finally at 10:40, it arrived. It's like a rockstar taco truck. Once it pulled up, people started cheering and taking pictures. Lol. I know I'm trying to be more of a vegetarian lately, but their short rib tacos and spicy pork tacos are the best. I'd highly highly recommend. So delicious. If you have no idea what I've been talking about, please go check out their website now!
