el chilito replacing gypsy!

i know, i know, we really don't need more tacos. but -- i'm not sad to see that el chilito is going to be replacing the mediocre, eh, italian 'bistro' called gypsy. i saw the wall being painted a bright green this morning as i biked to work and thought they were just trying to make it look more exciting, but i was pleased to see an el chilito sign on my way back from work this afternoon.

i am all for authenticity, and i don't think el chilito always delivers in that area, but i like that they offer aguas frescas and paletas and other little treats, and i'm happy that if i don't feel like making tinga one day, i have a place i can get to in seconds and order it! no need to deal with mile-long lines of east-side hipsters!

this location is barton springs and lamar, for those (fortunate souls) unfamiliar with gypsy.
