I still haven't tried this place but I hear great things.  I rarely eat a remarkable Mexican meal.  It always tastes the same. I'll have to check this place out, especially now that they have even quicker service.


I saw a restaurant in NYC that advertised Fast Slow Food....I kinda like that idea.

Broadcast yourself and make money doing it.  Sounds like a hyped-up infomercial but its true.  YouTubers entertaining others.  All of those eyes zoomed in on your postings catches advertisers' attention and $$$$$.

 YouTube has created many an Internet celebrity over its eight years, a number of whom have remained on the site, gaining a loyal following, and have made a nice amount of cash as well (thanks to the Google AdSense program and other opportunities stemming from their YouTube fame). One memorable example is singer Tay Zonday, whose 2007 song<a href='http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwTZ2xpQwpA' target='_blank'> "Chocolate Rain" </a>became a viral sensation. His recent versions of the "Skyrim" theme and "Call Me Maybe" each received millions of views.
