Photos: Atomic Tamale opens in Lakewood

Atomic Tamale just opened at 1450 Carr Street in Lakewood -- and on Sunday, when we stopped by to check out the new digs, we were happy to learn that the joint is still serving its free vegan menudo with a "special" Sunday order of two tamales and three falafel-stuffed taquitos. We feasted, shopped and snapped some photos along the way.
