Finally, there’s a good "T" word connected to the terribleness in Texas: tacos.
For two weeks, BelAir Cantina locations will offer a "Tacos for Texas" promotion to benefit the Houston Flood Relief Fund hosted by former University of Wisconsin Badger, J.J. Watt. The effort runs from Monday, Sept. 4 through Sunday, Sept. 17.
During this promotion, BelAir will serve a braised brisket taco with carmelized onions, citrus slaw and chipotle ancho mayo for $4.50. All of the proceeds will benefit the Relief Fund.
OnMilwaukee and FM102/1 are sponsoring the event.
"We wanted to get Milwaukee involved with the Houston recovery efforts in a fun and unique way. And, we're always looking for reasons to eat more tacos," says Michelle Rutkowski, FM102/1 program director and personality. "When the idea of creating Tacos for Texas came up, we knew BelAir was the perfect partner to make this tasty idea come to life!"

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
