4: According to NationalWhateverDay.com, today is National Taco Day! It’s also National Vodka Day – we would have assumed tequila, but we’ll go with it. Given today’s designation, we’re looking for some lunch suggestions (for the tacos, not the vodka!). Do you know any amazing, hole-in-the-wall taco places in North Hollywood or Toluca Lake we should check out? http://www.nationalwhateverday.com/
5: Today will be windy with a high of 85, according to the National Weather Service.
