Taco Tuesday, Everyday

If you don’t know what a walking taco is, imagine all the trappings of your favorite regular taco, but in a bag of crushed up Fritos. Columbia’s new walking taco specialists are Brittany and Scott Huhn, the wife-and-husband ownership team of Taco Tuesday, Everyday, which opened in October.

“I thought most people knew what [walking tacos] were, but that was a total misconception,” Brittany says. They’re a favorite meal for the Huhns and their three children (Brittany says they make walking tacos multiple times per week), so when the two started throwing around ideas for a restaurant, walking tacos were a natural fit.

The menu at Taco Tuesday, Everyday has expanded to include regular shell tacos and “walking taco burritos,” which include everything that would be in the Fritos bag, but in a tortilla instead. The Huhns hope to add a full kitchen and expand the menu at their store, located off Green Meadows Road. Until then, though, they’re happy with their product.

“Most people love tacos,” Brittany says, “and what better way to eat them than out of a bag?”

Anxiety & Depression Clinic of Columbia

The counseling practice, owned and operated by Tonya Culley and Jared Torbet, opened in April. Cully and Torbet bring a diverse background to the practice, having worked with different patients in schools, hospitals, and in individual counseling. At Anxiety & Depression Clinic, the two use a mindfulness-based counseling method known as ACT, or acceptance and commitment therapy. “It’s really where counseling and psychology are going,” Torbet says. “We realized we were kind of doing some things wrong.”

Rather than focusing on the elimination of negative feelings — say, anxiety and depression — ACT develops what Torbet calls “a relationship with those thoughts.” By fostering mindfulness and acceptance of anxiety, ACT patients develop a tolerance for those feelings, weakening the control that they can have on the patient’s self-image.

Anxiety & Depression Clinic is a private practice, and their clientele is mostly working professionals and families.

Your Pie

Your Pie, a Georgia-based pizza chain, opened its first Missouri location in Grindstone Plaza last month. The franchise location is owned by Pat Quinn, who is also the owner of Columbia’s Massage Envy and European Wax Center.

The fast-casual restaurant specializes in quick-serve, brick oven, customized personal pizzas. Customers have the ability to build their own pizza, panini, or salad made to order. Your Pie uses hand-tossed dough, fresh ingredients, homemade sauces and salad dressings, and offers vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free pizzas. The restaurant offers an eclectic beer menu to go with the pizza: 12 local craft beers are available on tap, and Your Pie has even more options in bottles. The restaurant also has a gelato bar, if you need something a little sweeter than pizza.

Quinn was drawn to the concept and quality of the franchise, which has locations throughout the southeast U.S. He likes the idea of mixing fast-causal pizza and craft beer. “Customers who dine at Your Pie have come to expect great tasting pizza served with speed without sacrificing flavor,” says Quinn.
