Tamales Los Mayas Seeks Kickstarter Microloans for Food Cart

Posted By on Tue, Jan 4, 2011 at 2:11 PM

Alicia Villanueva has taken to Kickstarter to raise $5,000 to start a mobile cart for her Tamales Los Mayas, a La Cocina-incubated business. The Sinaloa-born entrepreneur seeks help to purchase the cart and cooking equipment, and pay fees for licenses and permits. There are 16 days left to fund Villanueva's project, which had an investment of $825 at publishing time. If she succeeds, Villanueva already has approval to sell at Justin Herman Plaza and Off the Grid, on the strength of her tamales alone.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
