Whether you're a local taco pro or a complete newbie, the Taco Tour on Lake Street is one of the best ways to see the city and test the limits of your taco dexterity while doing so.
Last year's event drew over 2,500 participants. They walked, biked, and drove down Lake to check out some of the best Mexican food in the cities.
They're doing it again this year on Sunday, July 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting in the Lake Street K Mart parking lot, which is also home to my own personal favorite taco truck, El Primo. Shuttles from the parking lot will be running periodically throughout the day, and if you plan on using them, you're asked to register here.
Otherwise, you're invited to choose your own mode of transport and go your own way. Restaurants will be offering special promotions throughout the day of the tour.
Participating restaurants include A la Salsa, Cocina San Marcos, El Nuevo Rodeo, La Loma Tamales, La Mexicana Supermercado, Las Mojarras restaurant, Taco Taxi, Taqueria La Hacienda and Los Ocampo.
This year, they're adding an after-party fundraiser at Harriet Brewing, with food from Taco Taxi and Sonora Grill, plus local music. The after party begins at 5 p.m.
Go. Go and eat all the tacos.
