La Esquina Has a Crush on Obama

Sometimes restaurants get political behind the scenes — you’ll recall our list of restaurateurs who donated in the primaries — and sometimes they put it all out there. Not only is La Esquina displaying in its front window a newspaper clipping touting Barack Obama’s win, but it’s now selling “Obama 08” T-shirts (in the style of its “Mexico 70” tees, in purple and green) for $20 a pop. It remains to be seen whether this will drive former Hillary supporters to Pinche Taqueria.
