      Yup, was there this last Saturday and they were still there. Though the police kinda broke it up around 9:30 or so. Though it was only on the block North of Cesar Chavez (reading exilekiss' last yrs post, there was also a south section on 1st, but I didn't see it on either of my visits this yr). I pretty much stick to Nina's; everything I've had there has been great. The huitlacoche sope was heavenly. Though, I have been disappointed, in that both times I tried to order a Pambazo, they said they were out. Still really curious on this sandwich variation...

        I went a few weekends ago. Still in effect. Pretty tasty. Although for the distance (if you live on the westside) for the food quality I would be just as happy going to Grand Central Market downtown.
