A mad dash up to the gates of the Mami Chula Drive-In Beer Run in Laredo, Texas, from May 2010, with Bill Nericcio, author and ringleader of the Tex[t]-Mex Galleryblog. Our mad hopes of immortalizing a Laredo original is dashed by the muted, stern intervention of a beer vending manager.

Cinematography: Lila Nericcio
