Weekend Roundup - Tornados, Theater & Tacos

- As the Brooklynians have noticed, Oaxaca Taqueria opened their third location on Prospect just west of Franklin this weekend. The menu (available online) is the same as their other two locations, offering tacos, enchiladas, tortas, quesadillas, salads and some classic Mexican sides at typical "just a little more upscale than the hole-in-the-wall taco joint" prices ($2.95 for a taco, $2.50 for an enchilada, $7.95 for a torta, etc). The bare-bones interior has a few high cocktail tables to stand at, but it looks like their primary business will be take-out and delivery. I tried the steak taco (pictured above - food photography is not my strong suit) at the recommendation of the staff last night, and was pleased with my purchase, particularly once I dribbled some Valentina on it. Also of note was that I took this photo at 10pm on a Sunday night, which is to say that they'll be open late. NachosNY, what's your verdict?

- Murder in the Cathedral at the Church of St. Joseph in Prospect Heights did not disappoint on Friday night - I'll post a longer review later in the week, but suffice to say that this is a unique and thought-provoking theater experience. Shows run Thursday - Saturday at 7:30pm, with a Sunday matinee at 2, for the next couple of weeks. Don't miss it.

- Finally, the folks at About Time Boutique got some great footage of the Brooklyn tornado.
