    I'm about to head out to the event at the Hermon Park, just off the 110, at the Via Marisol exit. I stopped by earlier to look at the altars going up, which look great, and noticed that Huaraches Azteca was setting up a booth, as well as another, small-scale huarache/pupusa operation, the comal was just heating up. There looked to be space for a number of additional vendors, this promises to be a pretty outstanding event.

        Sorry, just saw your message. You probably have about 20 min! My discovery was a pombazo from Huaraches Azteca, basically a torta roll dipped in their amazing roasted red chile and pregrilled, then stuffed with carne asada etc. I don't think anything can top their huaraches, but the pombazo is a great alternative. I can't remember seeing it on the menu at the restaurant, but I may have missed it.

      What about putting a picnic of your favs together and go on a tour of the Hollywood Cemetary???

        You might try Border Grill in Santa Monica. They usually do something fun.
