If case you weren’t watching Game 2 of the World Series last night, you missed a taut pitcher’s duel that put the San Francisco Giants two wins away from their second championship in three years. You also missed centerfielder (and former Met) Angel Pagan stealing second base, which triggered Taco Bell’s “Steal a taco” promotion, in which a stolen base in the World Series won every American man, woman and child a free Doritos Locos Taco, to be given away next Tuesday, October 30 between 2pm and 6pm.
In case you’ve missed the commercials, the Doritos Locos Taco is a nacho cheese dust delivery system developed in a Taco Bell lab that is apparently so good or so hard to believe that young people are just Instagramming the crap out of it when they buy it. How does it taste? Dunno, we haven’t eaten at Taco Bell since they discontinued the cheesy gordita crunch. It’s not bad, according to Gizmodo, but you probably shouldn’t eat eight of them. Still, with five Taco Bell locations in Brooklyn and three in Manhattan (plus a secret Taco Bell at Long Island College Hospital), you can try, if you’re unemployed and willing to make a day out of it. Of course, if you don’t want to eat one of the tacos, Gawker contributor Mobutu Sese Seko has some thoughts on what you should do with Taco Bell’s odd charity instead.
