A Hungry Update

Dios mío. It’s been a while.

Dearest readers, lectores, amigos and friends, 

After a long hiatus for reasons that need not be mentioned here aside to say that much of the recent past was sort of one big F&%K-stuffed bad cabbage simmered in hot garbage milk and served up in a crap-lacquered basket of damp middle fingers (we’re sure we’re not alone in this sentiment, or some variation thereof), we’re delighted to announce that the Herald is back! Back on the rack and …

Playa Tecolote Taco in La Paz, Baja California Sur

TACOSCAPE MEDITATIONS

Remember Chi-Chi’s? I don’t.

Although the Tex-Mex restaurant chain with the eyebrow-raising name (go ahead, Google its meaning in Spanish) was big when I was a kid, I don’t quite recall ever making it out to one of their locations, despite my fascination with reports that they were somehow deep-frying ice cream. I guess we weren’t all that hungry for chimichangas in our household. We never went to Taco Bell either for that matter, which was easy since “The Cure For The Common Meal”, as they claimed to be at the time, didn’t show up in our neck of the woods,

Lovers' Beach Cabo San Lucas

DIVORCE NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD

Just wow. Actually, let’s say it in Spanish: ¡Guau! Here, at Land’s End, lies a pair of beaches that are together and separately in a league of their own. Playa de Los Amantes (or Playa del Amor) and Playa del Divorcio share the very tip of the Baja peninsula, just shy of the spot where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet in spectacular fashion. Two sides of the same cape if you will. There are several ways to get here, including as part of an excursion, simply kayaking over yourself if you’re up for it, or hitching

HAIR OF THE DOG, HEAD OF THE COW: BEATING A BAJA HANGOVER

Dried bull penis and rabbit poop tea. Ok, now that we have your attention. It was September 2022, Cabo San Lucas, and someone had a hangover. Nothing apocalyptic, I could still operate an iPhone and displace myself from point A to point B, but I needed treatment for my crapulence. Preferably tasty treatment, and relatively immediate. A quick rummage through the Google drawers in search of hangover cures reveals an impressive list of recommendations stemming from all corners of the globe, and all corners of plausibility…

Margarita Cabo San Lucas Tequila

CABO ELECTRICO: BREAKFAST. BEACH. BOOZE. BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.

“There’s a sleepy town, south of the border, If you go there once, you’ll be there twice.” “Cabo Wabo” by Van Halen. Not so sleepy anymore, that’s for damn sure. Back when Van Halen frontman Sammy “Right Now” Hagar penned these words sometime deep in the ’80s, Cabo San Lucas was just beginning to show signs of paving its way from tuna-centric fishing village to the tourist-centric supernova it has now become. Part of the vanguard of those sniffing out the party potential of this town early on, Hagar and friends would eventually jump-kick the doors open to the now
