Americans have a long tradition of celebrating important things. With Mother's Day and Father's Day to celebrate ma and pa, Valentine's Day honoring candy and St. Patrick's Day worshipping beer, it's baffling that we have yet to create an official holiday to pay homage to one of our most beloved foods — the taco. L.A. Weekly to the rescue! This newspaper hosts a long-overdue celebration of all things taco in Hollywood. Tacolandia promises to be every food lover's dream come true, with more than 30 trucks turning out the finest tacos you'll ever eat. Curator Bill Esparza has brought in chefs from Los Angeles, Orange County and even Baja, and for those who like a little cerveza with your tacos, there's the option of going VIP, which includes complimentary beverages from the bar. Once those Coronas start to kick in, you can indulge in a little salsa to the tunes of Mariachi Los Reyes. Hollywood Palladium parking lot, 6215 W Sunset Blvd., Hlywd.; Sun., June 23, noon-5 p.m.; $20 general admission, $40 VIP.

Sun., June 23, 12-5 p.m., 2013
