Today is National Taco Day and National Vodka Day

Since there doesn’t seem to be an official arbiter for these contrived holidays dedicated to food and drink, it just so happens today is also National Vodka Day. Because we all need a special day to reminisce about our experiences with vodka, and all those times we woke up the next day feeling like we’d been hit by the Rikaloff Express.

Given there’s no better way to enjoy delicious al pastor or lengua tacos than with a smooth, smooth vodka chaser, below is a painstakingly researched map displaying search results for “tacos near Russia House,” home to an insanely long list of great vodkas. It’s marked with the purple pin.

“A” is Chipotle. You pretty much know what you’re getting with Chipotle. “E” is Lauriol Plaza, which has a taco platter on its menu with either ground beef or chicken tacos. “G” represents El Tamarindo, where you can score fish tacos, shrimp tacos, pork tacos, chicken tacos and tacos with Salvadoran chorizo. Lastly, “H” is La Frontera Cantina, home to some very tasty chicken taquitos.

If National Taco/Vodka Day isn’t a sure sign of the apocalypse, it’s at least a harbinger of the ongoing tacopocalypse, and we’re on it.
