National Taco Championships

That’s right, pro taco teams will be competing in qualifiers all around the country, leading up to the big $100,000 showdown in Las Vegas. Also true: This whole battle royale à la tacos begins right here in the ATX – in the vast parking lot of what used to be the local daily paper – and features, in addition to the main competition, a tequila exposition, a beauty pageant, a hot pepper contest, lucha libre wrestling, local bands and DJs, and – yeah, it’s gonna be a big ol’ tortilla-wrapped, music-fueled spectacle of champions.
