The Wiener Is

Congratulations to Rimpy, who correctly guessed Where The Fuck I Was - San Diego, California. How the hell did you do it? I think I know, but I'll let you share your prowess with the masses (all three of them)!

Well, a good magician never reveals his secrets, but I'll bend the rule this once. First I did a Google Image search on "El Mariachi statue", with no good results, unless you're a fan of Antonio Banderas.

Next I tried "El Mariachi Restaurant". A couple of pages in I saw another picture of your guy. There was a link to somebody's Flickr page about restaurant pictures, in which he mentioned the name and location of the eatery (I believe it was something to the effect of Mama Tessa's Taqueria). That website contained their logo, which matched the partially fuzzed-out ones from your pic.

So, a little pluck, and mostly a lot of luck brought me the answer I so desperately sought.

I suspect a similar method must have brought you the answer to the Truckee, CA Where's Rimpy? But I also figured - since you seem to have lived and/or traveled everywhere - that you would simply recognize it. Either way, I didn't want to make it too hard by fuzzing out the signs in Truckee. I figured any enterprising contestant would enjoy searching out those business names, the way I do.

Oh, so he puts WORK into.

I just guess :)
