On Halloween night, I stood on a sidewalk in East Nashville's Five Points with two hot vampires, the white-masked Vendetta, a guy dressed as a mammogram machine, and a horn-rimmed hottie who was rocking either Sarah Palin or Tina Fey. They were there waiting to get into the Red Door; I was there waiting to get a chicken taco from Mas Tacos Por Favor, the awesome taco wagon stationed late weekend nights in the neighborhood in an outfitted Winnebago.
But if you want to sample Teresa Mason's chicken, pork or quinoa tacos, tamales and watermelon agua fresca, you don't have to wait until the midnight hours. Starting today at 11 a.m., she parks in East Nashville's Riverside Village and serves weekdays until 3 p.m. Check her MySpace page for updates—although we still recommend seeking out Mas Tacos on a late weekend night, when the neighborhood's pub crawlers are catching their second wind. Just don't accept any mammograms from strangers.
