Do you like tacos? How does the idea of free tacos grab you? Yeah, we thought so. This weekend, the Lake Street Taco Tour will offer registered guests a guided tour of 15 Mexican restaurants on Lake Street -- complete with free tacos. Unfortunately, the tour is sold out, but event organizers promise other deals and promotions for regular customers as well.  [jump]

The tour will kick off at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 28, in the K-Mart parking lot on Nicollet Avenue. From there, several bilingual tour guides will lead groups of people from restaurant to restaurant where they'll be able to sample a variety of offerings including, but not limited to, free tacos. 

If this all sounds like some kind of spicy dream come true, that's because it basically is. Of course, there is a little bit of fine print: In order to partake in the tour, you had to register ahead of time at Onsite registration will be on a strict first-come-first-served basis, and since the tour is sold out, that might not be an option.

The list of participating restaurants is formidable to say the least: A La Salsa, El Burrito Mercado, Sonora Grill, Taco Taxi, Taqueria Los Ocampo, La Loma, and many others.

Attendees are encouraged to walk, bike, or drive from location to location, but the tour is also offering free bus services. For more information, visit
