I always thought a rincon meant a corner. Doesn’t it? My friends sometimes order from El Rincon because they deliver in the downtown area – when I finally decided to go see exactly where this Rincon was… I was disappointed it wasn’t on a corner but between Mr. Gabes tshirt shop and La Roca downtown. Regardless, I still order and eat their food when I hang with my pals.
It is much like the suggestion of a name change for Laredo. You can give it another name but you will still eat what they serve (and with your pals, too!).
Now, you and I both know that this is not going to happen and it is just a tease to try to get people to submit their ideas for the Name the Pride of Laredo contest. I am guessing all the ideas that Bordertown Blues has suggested are not good enough 😛 (maybe if he tried using the actual form they ask you to and send in some sample llantas, piñatas, carne, and sticker for your truck that he has suggested…).
Changing the name of Laredo would cost thousands, if not millions. It’s bad enough a certain person in the city is trying to suggest changing street names when we full well know the big bucks that go into changing signs, maps, business addresses and the mass confusion that hurts businesses. If Laredo actually had that kind of cash, it might as well build a new downtown.
