What’s community without a friendly rivalry from time to time? The Midtown Global Market normally brings people together, but for one day only, Eastlake and its taco-making neighbors are going to get competitive. A $29 ticket scores attendees three tacos, two beers, and a souvenir glass. More importantly, it gives a chance to sample tacos from Hot Indian Foods, Manny’s Tortas, and Taco Cat side-by-side. Try a taco from each vendor, compare and critique, and vote. Hot Indian Foods won the throwdown last year, but it’s up to this year’s taste testers to see if they’ll retain the title. In addition to celebrating two of the finest things in life, beer and tacos, this event also benefits a good cause, as Freedom for Immigrants will receive 15% of all proceeds. Vegetarian options will also be available. 21+.
