And in case you're curious about the longer version of the story, Crucero began sending breakfast burritos over to Common Grounds for sale last fall. That briefly upgraded Common Grounds' food offerings and Crucero's visibility until the bureaucracy blew the whistle on it.
So the practice ended, but the relationship continued.
Crucero owner Jesus Betancourt began making plans late last year to open a taco truck at Common Grounds. Months of work attaining the proper permits and preparing the trailer led to Betancourt finally moving his truck to the Common Grounds property this week.
Common Grounds general manager Blake Batson said the Crucero taco truck could be open by the start of the Baylor fall semester in three weeks. However, there are still operational details to be worked out, so there's no definitive opening date yet.
In fact, there's no guarantee that it will happen. But the fact that the trailer is parked at Common Grounds is a good sign.
Let me just add that Mutemath is scheduled to play at Common Grounds on Oct. 16. The possibility of pre-gaming that show with Crucero tacos is just about the most exciting thing on my radar for the next three months.
