The Vendy Awards Join Tacolandia for 2014

You now have even more reasons to go to Tacolandia, this weekend’s massive taco event put on by L.A. Weekly and Bill Esparza.  In addition to sporting tacos from 40 vendors and restaurants across L.A. and Mexico, this year they’re partnering with the Vendy Awards to award a special cup to the best street taco.  Run by the Street Vendor Project, a New York City non profit dedicated to street vendor advocacy, the Vendys have been held in L.A. twice before (once in 2012 and once in 2010). But for 2014 they’ve decided to team up with the biggest taco event of the year.

Tacolandia takes place this Saturday (6/28) from 3-7pm at El Pueblo de Los Angeles in DTLA.  Tickets are $35 each and can be purchased here.  There are premium and tequila garden tickets available as well, which include alcohol.

See you there!!!

(on Pomeroy just off of Soto) where the 10 and the 5 meet.
