Real (Azteca) bad news

OK, I'm hoping this really is just temporary, but RA has been shuttered all week. So if you were planning to hop on the 6 today to celebrate the strike's end with a steaming bowl of pozole or pancita, forget it!

The reason, according to a neighbor whom I take to have reliable info, was inattention to keeping their food vending (or maybe handling?) license current. So it lapsed, they got shut down, and now they have to wait to be relicensed. No telling how long that will take. Creates a major void in the neighborhood's good food roster, and has to be a Christmas bummer for a bunch of good people who depend on the place for their livelihoods.

I'll post again after next week, if there's any change.
