The Tamale Lady aka Virginia Ramos has been banned from selling her famous tamales at Zeitgeist! For 20 years the Tamale Lady has represented the best of San Francisco. She has used her savvy and entrepreneurship to put five of her children through college.

Now, unexpectedly, after 2 decades, Zeitgeist bar has banned her from selling at their location citing health regulations. Is it a coincidence that these regulations only surface as Chipotle is set to move in down the block? Unlikely. 

Lets stand up for The Tamale Lady and against big fast food.  

The Tamale Lady is as synonymous with Zeitgeist as Bloody Marys. We need to expand our support for her just as she has expanded our waistline. Sign the petition to save The Tamale Lady!
