A Tale of Tacos

Save Henry's!
Like so many in the Valley, we're worried about Henry's Tacos. It's a part of our family history.  We've logged countless hours there, waiting in line, sitting at the picnic benches, noshing on simple tacos.  The eldest had his only car accident (minor, thank God) turning into Henry's tiny-ass parking lot, the scene of many a fender bender or near-collision.  "I wanted to bring my kids here," the eldest said in a recent interview with the SJG.  "Now I can't.  They have the best @#$%'n hot sauce in the Valley."  The celebrity-driven movement to save Henry's has heated up, thanks to Elijah Wood, Aaron Paul and others in love with a humble taco stand where no one ever made a fuss about anything.  What it comes down to is this:
The owner of Henry's wants to retire, but keep the landmark going via a new owner.  The land owner doesn't want to renew the lease.  Hence, a nice taco hangout on Tujunga and Moorpark turns into a classic battleground.  What will happen?  Hard to predict, though at this point, it doesn't look good.  All I know is, it's a sad thing to say adios to Henry's Tacos.  Here's hoping we don't have to.
