    Written by Leslie Trombley


    American ‘taco-loco’ quest for authentic street food has brought taquarias and cantinas “across the border” so to speak, from Detroit Mexican town to several cities downriver. It’s prevalent that a taco craze has been taking over the community!

History tells us they were first prepared small enough to wrap and take for lunch, to eat quickly without utensils. Tacos progressed into street food when families prepared them for sale in the city for the working community. Today we find several types available, whether you prefer carna asada meats, seafood or Tex-Mex tacos, there is a location near you! Here are some (but not all) of note worthy tacos.

    WHY TO SHOP LAST MINUTE AT LOCAL SHOPS

    I t is the last week for holiday shopping season. Time is running out for last-minute shoppers w ho are hoping packages will arrive on time. So it's time to take a different approach.

    The answer is shopping local. Downriver is packed with a variety of local shops. Local retailers are stress free shopping environments. You can walk into any one small business and will be greeted with a friendly smile. You can quickly be in and out. Staff often directs you to exactly what you are looking for on your shopping list.


    What's more amazing, if they aren't the shop to carry that particular item on your list - small businesses are quick to recommend other local retailers that would carry it. That's because the small business community is just that - a community.  This is in stark contrast to the big box stores shopping scene that generates anxiety searching down endless aisle, stressed out employees, and long checkout lines.

    If you are that ultimate procrastinator - consider shopping local. Many local businesses are staying open late to accommodate the demand of last-minute holiday shoppers. You can find great local promotions inside our latest Online Magazine.
