Anyway, Taco Cabana wants to celebrate early by offering free tacos tomorrow from 5-8 p.m. They will be giving away chicken fajita tacos, to be exact, and no purchase is necessary. Even better, patrons will also receive a "Two Can Dine for $9.99" coupon. And it overlaps happy hour from 4-7 p.m.
Within the last couple of weeks, in the middle of a whole lot of restaurant news, two new places somewhat quietly opened their doors for business.
Cafe Vibrante on Valley Mills is now serving bistro-style lunches as well as retail olive oils and vinegars. They will be serving lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, while the olive oil and vinegar shop will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
I'll have more on this later in the week, but a bakery and coffee shop is on the way just north of the river on Elm Street. Lula Jane's is making strides to open by the end of October.
One more bite: I saw the film Sironia at the Hollywood Jewel on Sunday evening. It was filmed in Waco and includes a whole bunch of Waco restaurants. I won't give away what they are because whispering to your neighbor "Oh, that's ..." is part of the fun. And it's a good story as well. Take it from someone who routinely walks out of movies.
