Don Diego, Icon of San Diego
Thanks to my cool chum, Mark Dery, for reminding me of a nagging absence in Tex[t]-Mex! Where oh where was mention/attention/love paid to Don Diego, icon of the Del Mar Fair grounds and other fine San Diego establishments (including the San Diego Chamber of Commerce). How could I, a San Diego native (I came here in 1991 which makes me an honorary San Diegan), not tout this handsome "Mexican" mannequin. To ameliorate this nettlesome lacuna, I share two images--one a screengrab off wikipedia, the other a stolen shot of Don Diego--get your own here.
