Australia, you have shown us that 2020 isn’t all the doom and gloom social media has leaded us to believe. You’ve proved the perils of iso wrong by unleashing the creative beasts within and connected with friends and family like true digital natives. Let’s have a look at April 2020, shall we? We’re collectively dancing it out to The Weekend’s ‘Blinding Light’, Doja Cat’s ‘Say So’, and just about every other TikTok track. Households everywhere have dusted off their fluoro leg warmers in preparation for 90’s-styled floor aerobics (flashback to that awkward hour before Saturday Disney every weekend), and even entered the unofficial nation-wide banana bread and gnocchi-cooking phase of isolation. We’re staying sane and rewarding our hungry and bored stomachs – all at a socially safe distance.
Now time for the next phase of isolation – the revival of ‘Taco Nights’, which has become all, but lost during this time. Drop the bread tins, that falafel mix can want til’ Saturday night. At Guzman y Gomez, we’ve heard how isolation has changed your day-to-day life. Considering we’ve all already lost track of what bloody day it is, we’re here to show you how easy it is to make every day as happy and fulfilling as Tuesday!
The 5 ways you can make every night Taco Night
1.The dining room decor is already perfect
Theming your dining room will be easy, considering you’ve already raided Kmart’s shelves of succulents and cactuses. Moving all small plants and cactuses temporarily into the dining room will help provide an authentic setting for eating Tacos. Be sure to label your plants as to avoid your housemates claiming them as their own after dinner. And for some reason, every dress up box has a sombrero?! That bad boy can be your table centre piece.
2. You’ve been working on your ‘isolation moustache’ for the past four weeks
Yep, we’re all growing them. Isolation has turned Australia’s households into ‘the best moustache competition.’ Some rock them, some need the helpful advice from mates to shave them, and some need to take a lesson from Aunties around the nation, who are gunning for that ‘stache gold medal.
3. With all this time up your sleeve, you’re now the master of language
Everyone has been taking the time in isolation to work on their creative side, such as learning new languages. “Donde esta mis tacos?!” is now a common household saying. “Salsa”, “burrito”, “mi casa es su casa”, “Mr 305”, “con queso…” You’ve been practicing all of the lingo, now its time to showcase your new talent to your housemates over a meal from your new favourite culture.
4. Soul searching has lead you to answer life’s age-old questions yourself
With all this time, we’re looking for answers to age-old questions, such as ‘hard or soft taco?’ pinning Australia’s most passionate tacoeaters head-to-head. Purchase some tacos to share and let your tastebuds do the talking. Create and present arguments and counter arguments to deliver at your plant-covered table space.
5. For just $3, GYG is doing the hard work for you (Did we mention the new tacos?)
As a Mexican-taqueria, it’s our job to know nothing but quality tacos. Introducing GYG’s newest Australian-themed taco:
Crispy hard-shell tacos, mouth-watering ground beef, fresh lettuce and Australian-made jack cheese.
Coming in at $3 per handful of crunchy goodness, and paired perfectly with a frozen margarita (for when you’re home of course)! The all-new taco is available at your local GYG today.
So scream at your house mates “vamos al a Guzman y Gomez” and jump in the car, because Taco happiness is only a short drive away, any day of the week!
