Plus you get taco's not bumper stickers. Although a bumper sticker would look pretty sweet on my Porsche when I park it out front of Punk.

OTOH, the proprietor started his enterprise with lofty ideals, and to his credit he stuck to them. I think that kind of mitigates any sort of shame. After all, when the numbers weren't adding up he could have slashed costs by abandoning his ideals and firing everyone and replacing them with illegals and sourcing his food fom XYZ Food supply, etc, etc. The Eater dude doesn't mention this because his job is to purvey snark and that's about it.
And speaking of snark, I'm planning on a kickstarter program to revive Ollie's Trolley. Who's in?
/Low blow... I know

That said, I'd like to see it work out. I don't want any local restaurant or business or individual to fail. And I think it speaks positively of anyone who is willing to donate their money to something they deem to be a good cause.
I still haven't made it out to Taco Punk myself. I have heard mixed reviews, but do want to check it out, mainly just as an F-YOU to that one hack UofL "reviewer".
