There’s No Reserved Seating at Flash Taco

Last night found me at Flash Taco on North and Damen at 1:30am. I know – you can burn me in the comments. Where else are you going to go after a show at Subterrannean?

Oh yeah. Home. Right.

We were lucky enough to arrive just as a table opened up, so we got our food, sat down and enjoyed our meal, or should I say, tried to enjoy our meal. As soon as we sat down, this yuppie girl approached my friend and asked us if she and her boyfriend can have our seats after us, then stared at us the entire time we were there. After a while, she actually had the nerve to mouth to me, “Are you done?”

Damn, you suburban yuppie-freak prima donna B**CH. LET US EAT OUR CRAPPY FOOD. It’s hard enough to keep it down without being made uncomfortable by someone staring over you like vultures! If you wanted a seat that badly, why didn’t you go down to the basement floor where I’m sure there were plenty of seats? Or are you that much of a little princess you had to have the front window seat? Did you see the twenty other people who were content to stand and eat their tacos and not bother the other customers? Did you notice how embarrassed your boyfriend looked because you were so RUDE?

In the future, if you happen to find yourself in Wicker Park late on a Friday evening, do us all a favor – Get back in your SUV and DRIVE TO A WENDY’S.

Oh, and as an aside, don’t order anything from Flash Taco’s dollar menu. I barely got two burnt nibbles wrapped in corn.

    Despite a ‘victory’ for the DbleDoor over the Banana – Wicker Park, as so many have said before, is done. D-O-N-E!! Unfortunalty a lot of quality shows still pop up there due to lack of research and choice. Advice – stay away!

    i will continue to go there and support the double door as much as i can – in words and patronage. i heartily disagree with you.

    Wicker Park is like that skateboard kid in high school who tries sooooo hard, so hard to be different that all he can come up with is not showering. Then he meets a pom-pom girl and they kind of hook up because they both have never experienced it before. You know? Anybody?

    The real story is why you are eating at Flash Taco.

    Well, you made your bed there.. you went right into the hornets nest. I must recommend Taco Veloz on Chicago Ave for the late night Mexican cuisine. They always have seating and plenty of parking as well as great authentic mexican food at decent prices. Its a trixie-free zone.
