Get out your gadgets: Tickets to this year's Tacolandia are now on sale. Or, more accurately, as of 10 a.m. this morning, April 22, you can access presale tickets and buy them before they go on sale to the public on Friday. Because you can't do anything these days without jumping through a few hoops, and for a giant taco extravaganza, what's a few hoops anyway.
In order to do this, enter the code TACOBLOG via Ticketfly. What this will get you, eventually, is tickets to the second annual Tacolandia, to be held this year on Saturday, June 28 from 3-7 p.m. at El Pueblo de Los Angeles in downtown L.A. ]
The list of restaurants currently confirmed include: Bistro LQ, Carnitas El Momo, Chichen Itza, Colonia Taco Lounge, ConiSeafood, Guerrilla Tacos, chef Katsuji Tanabe, Mexicano & Flautas (by chefs Jaime Martin Del Campo and Ramiro Arvizu), George's At The Cove, Mariscos Jalisco, Mexicali Taco & Co., Rocio's Mole de los Dioses, Soho Taco, SOL Mexican Cocina, Starry Kitchen, Taco Maria, Tacos Punta Cabras and Tamales Elena. And we'll update as more restaurants confirm as well.
A reminder of the details: General admission, which includes entry into the event, entertainment, access to the vendor village and the cash bar as well as tacos from the many vendors, is $25. Premium tickets ($45) include all that plus a VIP gift bag and 5 drink tickets. You can also buy a $20 tequila garden ticket, which doesn't include event admission, which gets you into said garden and 10 1/2-oz. tequila shots.
Happy taco-ing to us all.
