Each year, top chefs from local hotspots convene at International Market Square to compete, Iron Chef-style. Thursday night’s brawl will be all about tacos, and a mandatory secret ingredient will also be announced moments before things get started. Competitors include talents from Jefe: Urban Hacienda, Bar Luchador, Sonora Grill, El Burrito Mercado, MAYA Cuisine, and Taco Cat. While chefs may sweat under the stress, revelers will feast, as a slew of local bars, businesses, and restaurants will be serving up delicious items from their menus. Seek out flautas, oysters, pizza, and cupcakes. Be sure to hit up the vodka, wine, and beer samples as well. VIP scores guests early entrance and third-floor access, where you’ll find special beers, a cocktail bar, and other treats. Tickets and more info can be found at 21+. 7 to 10 p.m.; 6 p.m. VIP.
