Parents in town. Where should they take me to dinner? Republique comes to mind but I want more options. (Also, Eastside for life, you know.)

"The food was ok and nothing special. I had the carnitas tacos with Chicharron. ugh. The carnitas was excellent but I am not a fan of pig skin."

Adventures in reading Yelp.

Any of you been to El Condor in Silver Lake yet?

McDonald’s has long marketed to consumers of color as aggressively as any big corporation. It was one of the first corporate customers of Burrell Communications, the longstanding, highly decorated multicultural advertising agency. While we take for granted that there are lots of people of color in mainstream commercials, the world was much different in those awkward early days of culturally targeted marketing. But a journey through this history offers a (hilarious) reminder of what has and has not changed in the art of selling burgers to brown people.

What we found when we started digging through the archives was that McDonald’s was deeply concerned with black folks getting down. (Excuse us:gettin’ down.)
