When is a truck a palace? When it's a Donut Taco Palace Truck, duh. The newest outpost in the DTP empire is a truck that the owners plan to park downtown from about 6pm until 2am, ensuring that countless tourists and easily-amused locals alike will have something wacky to snap Instagram photos of in the year to come. (In addition to the Buzzfeed-ready hilarity of the name, the truck's graphics, seen here in greater detail, features charmingly Google-translated lines like "Only us can do These kinda of Donuts" and has hilariously mislabeled the "Hail Satan" heavy metal hand-sign as something called "Longhorns.")
Already-trite photo opportunities aside, though, this is big news for fans of kolaches, donuts shaped like hands, and breakfast tacos who agree that those things all taste best in the middle of the night when you're drunk. Which is pretty much everybody in Austin, so the lines will probably be really long.
