Lucy’s Tacos

I am pretty sure Lucy makes delicious tacos. What I am less sure about is where she sells them, as the building right behind the sign appears to not have an operable kitchen. Or, you know, anything else Lucy or her customers would require.

The carnival wasn’t in operation the day I was there. In fact, not much of anything was in operation the day I was there.

*To be real clear here – I only look inside places that are obviously unoccupied. If I have the slightest idea maybe someone’s still using the place, I’ll keep moving. That’s just common courtesy, right?
