More crispy, crunchy, Krispy Krunchy Chicken

White Horse Liquors has finally added its planned outpost of the fried chicken chain, which is typically embedded in gas stations and liqour stores (though the Tenderloin does have its very own, standalone store). It’s got favorites like fried shrimp and fish, cajun tenders, wings, honey butter biscuits, and fries. It’s located at 6606 Telegraph Ave.; look for the festive, chicken-festooned signage.

San Jose city council vows to make new Chik-Fil-A the country’s gayest

In other chicken news, an outpost of the fried chicken chain is slated to open at the Minetta San Jose airport, despite its reputation for donating to anti-LGBTQ causes. The council says that it is encouraging the franchise to hire members of the LGBTQ community. Santa Clara County supervisor Ken Yeager has recommended that the city display rainbow and transgender pride flags next to the restaurant “as a way to counter the bigotry of Chick-fil-A and to let people know that even though there’s that restaurant there, the city is showing its support for the LGBTQ community.” Oh, and it’s going to get the boot if it refuses to stay open seven days a week (it typically closes on Sundays).

Its a taco takeover at Off the Grid

Off the Grid Fort Mason, the food truck/pop-up party that happens weekly, is hosting a taco takeover on Friday, April 12. That means vendors like Mission Street Food, Jeepney Guy, and Frozen Kuhsterd will prepare special tacos to be judged by a panel of judges at the end of the night. There’ll also be a people’s choice award, margaritas, and a special appearance by LA pop-up All Flavor No Grease. Buy tacos a la crate or grab a $35 taco tasting ticket which includes four taco tastes and a Don Julio Margarita. Get a ticket here.
