Tacos (top), fixins (bottom right) and the adult horchata (bottom left).
Full-time clothing store/shop, part-time taqueria? Well, sorta. The Richter Co. (616 Broadway), the garment company founded by Mario Guajardo, held its first Taco Tuesday tonight from 6-11 p.m. The shop also plays host to a slew of other events including yoga sessions, dinners and themed nights on the first Saturdays of the month.
For the first go, Guajardo whipped up beef tri-tip and sausage tacos with fixings including a salsa verde, a red peanut sauce, queso, guacamole and sliced radishes. Adrian Sarabia of Blue Box manned the cash bar, which included Mexican cervezas, margaritas, a delish aged-rum/horchata concoction and a pisco marg with Big Red.
Business partner Tom Schleuning said they'll continue Taco Tuesday every Tuesday for the foreseeable future.
