As you’ve undoubtedly heard by now, The Man has set his sights on our beloved Tamale Lady and is trying to make it so that she can’t do the thing she does best: slang tamales. News broke last week that Virginia Ramos (aka The Tamale Lady) would no longer be allowed to sell tamales in the bar she is most often associated with, Zeitgeist.

In response, the folks over at The SF Eagle have opted to throw Virginia’s yearly birthday extravaganza this time around. It’s happening Friday June 21st at 7pm. Expect a showing of Our Lady of Tamale, the film about Virginia’s life, lots of tamales, and most likely a very drunk Tamale Lady. If you’re one of the many thousands of people who Virginia’s tamales have saved from puking/pregnancy/blacking out/passing out/pissing the bed/walking into on coming traffic/general death or any other malady due to drunkenness, you owe it to Virginia to hit up the Eagle Tavern and show your support. To quote an an old Tamale Lady shirt “The Tamale Lady Saves!” You should do the same for her.
