I was excited for this event since I missed every other taco-related event this summer. We bought two $8 tickets in advance – not sure why because no one checked any tickets. We’ve been to a lot of food events this summer so maybe we were expecting too much. This wasn’t so much an event as it was just a temporary taco truck selling over-marketed food. The result: waiting 1 hr for two bean tacos, some arugula and a picked pepper. The tacos were OK, but the 1 hr wait was not – a poorly managed event left a bitter taste in our mouth. The beans needed some salt but the taco overall showed some thought was put into it. I did enjoy the carbonated iced coffee from Blue Bottle Coffee. To full the void in our stomachs, we finished the night with a burrito and taco from Little Mexico at The Woods (which were pretty good).
