It's Tacolandia Time, Now With an Olvera Street Tequila Garden

The first Tacolandia festival last year was one of the year's better tasting events -- unlike many of the high-end charity events, it's priced for normal people. And there's a tequila garden, so that speaks for itself. It's curated by taco experto Bill Esparza, so you know the most interesting and intense flavors will be representing -- renegade chefs like Bistro LQ's Laurent Quenioux and Starry Kitchen, new-style gourmet tacos from Guerrilla Tacos and Tijuana's Tacos Kokopelli and just plain great Mexican seafood form Coni' Seafood are among the 40 taco tastes that will be grilling in El Pueblo de Los Angeles, a much more fitting and pleasant location than last year's Hollywood parking lot.

Tickets are $25 to $45 depending on your cocktail choices. Sponsored by the L.A. Weekly, a portion of the proceeds will go to Homeboy Industries.
