Snack Dragon Scores Wine & Beer License on Orchard
Posted on: November 2nd, 2011 at 6:28 am by Elie
Quiet Orchard Street Mexican eatery Snack Dragon Taco Shack is in celebratory mode today. After repeated unsuccessful attempts via CB3, the seventeen-month-old Lower East Side offshoot has just scored its beer and wine license from the State Liquor Authority. To commemorate the occasion, owner Josephine Janson is offering the “Taco Fever Deal” at 164 Orchard – beer, wine or ‘New Wave Sangrias’ are half-off with the purchase of two tacos until 8pm daily.

In an official PR statement sent to us earlier:
The perfect compliment to everyone’s favorite taco shack, the addition of alcoholic beverages include Modelo Especial, El Presidente, and Tecate beers served ice cold, as well as, new age tropical sangrias, Chilean Cabaret Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanche. Additionally, the Michelada spicy Mexican beer cocktail will be added for the holidays.
“It’s been a long time coming. After six and a half years of business, I can serve a cold beer or wine with a taco,” says owner Josephine Janson. “The Umami Thai Taco with the tropical ginger sangria is a natural match!”
The new license to sell booze definitely explains the arrival of conspicuous Modelo neons presently hanging from the storefront canopy at 164 Orchard Street.
