Calling it authentic Mexican food demeans it. This is life. You are the immigrant now. Going to the Maxwell Street Market was a turning point in my food adventure career. I used to go on adventures of mass quantities or extreme themes, but this was the first time I really became immersed in a culture.

Aside from food, the inspiration flows generously. There are so many fun finds here as well as essentials. On my last trip, I went in to get some guac and then found a non-working carburetor that would have made an amazing art piece – too bad the man was selling it for the price of a carburetor, not an art piece.

No one does anything on Sunday. Do something.
