Dos Equis Feast of the Brave 2012 Bypasses NYC

I’m a big fan of the “stay thirsty, my friends – most interesting man in the world” ads from Dos Equis but as a foodie, my Nuyorican ego was a bit miffed by this miss.

 

The Dos Equis’ Feast of the Brave set six taco trucks on the loose, serving a smorgasbord of strange in Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, LA and Miami. According to them, their “tortilla toppers include grilled shark, spiced crickets and hog stomach, among many others. Each taco comes with its own bravery score, and each city will battle it out to see who has the boldest eaters.”

 And although at “the 2010 Census, there were 319,263 Mexican Americans living in New York City and some estimates suggest that Mexicans will surpass both Puerto Ricans and Dominicans in 2023 to become the city’s largest national Latino sub-group,” we all know Tacos have a fandom beyond ethnicity and region.

In addition to that, my home  [yes, the center of the universe] is also known as the gourmet capital and ethnic-eats paradise to foodies everywhere. Since, 9/11, we are also the home of the brave. So why the diss? Even the most interesting man in the world in the world is a fan.
