I’m getting tacos from the Entourage truck

Choosing a place for lunch in West Philadelphia is always interesting. There are a lot of options ranging from gourmet burger joints to questionable food trucks, but I tend to stick with my usual places (much like where I park). It’s Friday, I decided to venture out and it was impossible to avoid seeing this image of Jeremy Piven selling Mexican food.

The truck is called “Coup de Taco” and my Thai chicken rice bowl was very tasty. Look for this truck on 40th Street between Walnut and Spruce or weeknights at 11:30PM on myphl17.


I wouldn’t want them in my Entourage

I think I like Entourage, but I’m having a lot of trouble getting invested this season.  Who cares about Vincent Chase?  So his friends are busy.  This is what his story amounts to.  Given the fact that I am completely unsympathetic to his situation, he doesn’t make for the best protagonist.

Angie thinks viewers could relate to Drama, since they’ve probably met people that repulsive.  I’d rather watch him save Kim Bauer from a mountain lion.  Pizza Boy and Joker Face are not interesting and difficult to watch.  They dangle the girl from the Zohan in front of the viewers and do nothing with her for weeks.  Turtle is really the only character semi-relatable of the core group, but he still has it pretty good.  Two new luxury cars for your birthday does not make you the everyman.

Ari Gold is still the best reason to watch.  His story is the only one that seems meaningful this season.  There’s been an interesting progression to his being a decent husband and father underneath his brash exterior.  I genuinely like Piven as an actor, but it seemed like the audience hated him by the end of his appearance on The Tonight Show Tuesday night.  I’ll keep watching for now, but I’m questioning how long I’ll be sticking with this show.
