New York Giants Feast on In-A-Tub
Here’s one last Kansas City post before I head back to DC. My favorite restaurant in KC is… you guessed it, a taco joint called In-A-Tub Tacos, home to the best greasy-spoon tacos I’ve ever had.
What does this have to do with the New York Giants? Well, you may recall a certain snowstorm grounding the Giants in Kansas City on December 11 and forcing a delay in the Vikings-Giants game. (This was the same snowstorm that knocked out the Metrodome roof, but in fact the Giants being unable to get to the game was the main factor in postponing.) Now, check out this ESPN.com post from that evening:
Giants defensive end Justin Tuck just told me via cell phone that the team will likely stay in Kansas City tonight and then try to get out early Sunday morning. He also wanted to plug a Kansas City-based restaurant called In-A-Tub that specializes in tacos. He and several defensive players bypassed the barbecue sandwiches in favor of tacos.
This was followed shortly by a post on the In-A-Tub Facebook page:
Sent a carry out order of tacos to the airport today for some of the NY Giants players. The team was delayed at KCI for several hours. Their flight ended up getting cancelled. No doubt they enjoyed the tacos from earlier in the day, since we ended up making a bunch more for them to scarf down at the hotel that evening. Thanks Dave Tollefson #71 for the order and Justin Tuck #91 for the plug on espn.com.
Well played, Giants. Well played.
