Tacolandia, a festival for the rest of us

A recent shrimp taco special from Mexicali Tacos
I've often complained that food festivals are way too expensive for the average eater, and now Bill Esparza, the Mexpert who blogs at StreetgourmetLA has done something about it. The L.A. Weekly is sponsoring the first Tacolandia festival, hosted by Bill, with a base price of $20 for more than 30 great taco tastes including the amazing Ensenada seafood stand La Guerrerense. Plus, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Homeboy Industries. Here's the details:
What: L.A. Weekly's Tacolandia Taco Fest
When: Sunday, June 23, noon-5 pm
Where: Hollywood Palladium parking lot
Participating tacomakers: Bistro LQ, SOL Mexican Cocina, Guerilla Tacos, Loteria Grill, Mexicali Taco Co., Rocio's Mole De Los Dioses, SoHo Taco, La Guerrerense and more.
Tickets: $20 for regular admission including all the tastes, $40 for VIP tickets including drinks at the bar.

Speaking of taco trucks, try El Gallito tacos in mid city. An undiscovered gem of Oaxaca cuisine. I discovered it through Subleasehub.com.
