Pulptown Member Recommends: the Black Rooster Taqueria

Pulptown Member Kristyn with Orlando recommendationsI’ve long subscribed to the theory that you’re only as good as the people you surround yourself with. And well, from the looks of our members, we’re surrounded by the best. You’re all always working on something cool, interesting, and fun and what better way to get the word out there than to introduce you to each other?

Every so often, we “meet” in this spot to introduce you to other members like you. People who believe in what we’re doing so much that they pay $8 a month to be here.

Today, we’re spotlighting member Kristyn G. She lives in Lake Mary with her wife and crazy kitty Loki.

What local business do you think deserves a shoutout (and why)? We are huge fans of Black Rooster Taqueria. Their fish tacos, homemade corn tortillas, and guac are the best in town and definitely deserve a shout-out! Please patronize this business — we would be so bummed to see it close due to COVID.

What’s a local virtual event you attended recently that you loved? Tribe International’s “Tea with Tribe.” It’s a great way to connect with our community on important topics about women, self-love, and growth.

What’s a recent story you’ve read about Orlando that you wish more people cared about (and why)? The issues around Dandelion Community Cafe and their worker’s struggles. The cafe was a beacon in the community for 14 years and a really special place to me. I was devastated to see it close, especially under such controversial circumstances. It was really disappointing to see that the owners did not practice what they preached about community values with the way they treated their staff.

What’s something you’re working on — in big ways or small — that you could use help with? We are working on improving our health with the extra bandwidth we have working from home full time. We’re in the middle of a three-month cleanse and feeling amazing! We welcome any tips you’ve learned along the way like fast, clean recipes.

What are you celebrating in your life right now? Being a newlywed and working on becoming a mama!
