pinktacodonkey.jpgFor yesterday's celebration of Cinco de Mayo, the Pink Taco in the Century City shopping center painted a donkey pink and tied it up outside the restaurant. People noticed — which is rare for the Pink Taco — and apparently didn't like it. "Wonder what marketing dimwit, sloshed off too many overpriced margaritas, came up with the genius idea," the OC Weekly asks.
