Park Slope tamale lady lives.....

She hasn't left for good. Having missed seeing her for a few weeks now on weekday mornings, I chanced to be driving by 4th Ave and 9th St. on Sunday morning about 9:00 a.m. this weekend (church must have gotten out a little early for me this week) and lo and behold, there she was. I pulled over halfway into bus stop, put on the flashers, grabbed my 18 month old, and stood in line for a couple of tamales. Well worth the wait. They were nice and hot, and perfectly spiced.

I was in a huge rush (not the mention my car well positioned for a major traffic accident), so I did not have time to ask her what her schedule is, but judging by the other people milling around her, she's around pretty regularly. Next stop, 46th st. and 5th ave....
