Pottstown Taco Crawl Part Uno

Early Cinco de Mayo celebrations began a week ago Friday night as we embarked on a Taco Crawl through the borough. We started out with high hopes of tasting as many different tacos as possible in one night, but we had to quit halfway through, so we’ve decided to continue again later.

We began the night at Three Brothers Grill, located at 1432 East High Street. Frank’s Fish Taco and the Steak Super Taco were favorites for our group here, and yeah, it’s not a taco, but the tamales are fantastic!

 

Next, we slipped into Aye, Carumba! at 300 East High Street, in the old Farmers Market building, now made over into a fun food court. My particular favorite here is the deep fried avocado tacos (genius!), but we honestly tried one of everything, and there wasn’t a stinker in the bunch. There is tons of new table space in the rear now, too, so our big group had no trouble finding a place to sit. If I hadn’t been trying to conserve calories for tacos, the Grapefruit Paloma is a nice compliment to any taco. Also don’t miss the Chipotle Sweet Potatoes and the Churros (gluten free)…YUM!

The last stop we made during Part Uno was at Juan Carlos. We got the L.A. Street Tacos, the Fish Tacos, and we splurged and treated ourselves to the garlic shrimp and some flan (probably a big part of the reason why there is no way we were going to make it through all the taco places that night!). Everything got a thumbs up, especially those nicely spiced L.A. Street Tacos.

Next time, we have to pace ourselves: no chips and no extras…gotta try sticking to the tacos! On Part Dos, we want to hit Los Aztecas, The PUB, and Plaza Vazquez. Anyone have any other suggestions for great tacos in (or very near to) town? Grab some friends and crawl your way through the tacos in town!

Hairspray Opening This Weekend At PHS

Over the last 5 years, the Pottstown High School Musical program has taken us from Rydell High to the City of Oz, from Skid Row to under the sea.

This year, the scene is 1960’s Baltimore! A cast of over 80 talented teens will present the hit Broadway musical Hairspray in the Davenport Auditorium March 1-3.  Add in stage crew, lighting, and hair and makeup and you’ve got over a hundred students working to bring this production to life. Long days with rehearsals stretching almost to midnight are just about over and the students are ready for opening night this weekend!

If you aren’t familiar with the plot of Hairspray, it’s the story of Tracy Turnblad, a chubby, vivacious teenager with dreams of dancing on the Corny Collins Show, specifically with her crush, Link Larkin.  It’s not just about young love; the story is set in a city undergoing massive change.  The show, and in larger part, the community is wrestling with ongoing segregation that

But, Tracy and her best friend Penny are out to change things for everyone!  Hairspray is ultimately about breaking stereotypes and changing the culture of the community, with lots of teen hormones, catchy music, and great dance numbers thrown in.

So, come on out this weekend for a great show and lots of hairspray!

The show opens tomorrow, March 1st at 7pm, with another evening performance Saturday March 2nd at 7pm and a matinee at 2pm in the Davenport Auditorium at Pottstown High School.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the door
