Reader: It takes a global village to hate the T|ACO name

T|ACO opens today in Boulder. It's a new concept from the folks behind H Burger Co. (an outpost of that joint just opened in Boulder, too), and readers agree that the place looks good -- the urban taqueria is a 62-seat homage to tacos and spaghetti Westerns -- and the menu seems promising....

But what's with that name?

Says A Gross Salad:

At first I thought I was being my usual cynical self, getting really upset with how awful and pretentious the name is. But then I read the comments of you, fellow Westword reader, and I was immediately reminded that I am truly part of a Global VIllage.

What do you think of the T|ACO name? Read the rest of those comments -- and make one of your own -- here?
