Moving away from the danger signs on the tortilla maker, here are more shots of the Corona, Queens Tortilleria NIXTAMAL, enjoyed by Liney Li, Rick Ball, Pat O'Neill and yours truly prior to a concert at the Louis Armstrong House Museum.

You'd love this place.

At Nixtamal, cultural signs abound—from pinatas, to corn on the tortilla machine, to bright colors—and blend with internationally-understood icons like soccer, Coca Cola, and Milton Glaser's ever-appropriated "I heart . . ." logo, used here in goldenrod with red lettering and substituting Nixtamal for NY. Nixtamal also shows a Mexican take on Old Glory.

I am incredibly jealous. I bet the food was amazing! (I think I've only ever been to Corona, Queens once; it's quite a commitment.)
