Spend Cinco de Weekend at the greatest taco party of the year
New York Whether you stayed home and watched every season of Hart of Dixie, or went out and partied at Thrillist's Taco Knockout last year (and THEN went home and watched every season of Hart of Dixie), your favorite Cinco de Weekend festivity is back, and happening at the outdoor garden of Tequila Park Taqueria in the Hudson Hotel on Sunday. Here're five things you need to know before grabbing tickets right here.
The Tacos: A ton of your favorite spots from around the city are throwing their sombreros in the taco championship ring. Ones you're gonna have to get? The calamari fried diablo with squid ink pizza dough tortillas from Best Pizza, Chinese chicken tacos from The General, spicy pulled pork joints from Joe & Misses Doe, or this year's entry from last year's winner (and current home team) Tequila Park Taqueria, a boneless BBQ lamb rib with leeks and Thai basil.
The Drinks: There'll be cocktails from Herradura, beer from not-Herradura, and a DIY margarita station with all kinds of crazy toppings, like jalapeños, watermelon, and blueberries.
The Music: We're keeping it lively with DJ Alkaline and Omar Puebla, a DJ and live percussionist duo, because why the hell not.
The Activities: Luchador face painting (pro tip: wash off before going home on the subway), dudes in full-body taco suits (probably?), giveaways, and a surprise "match" that we're not giving away right now. Taco tease!
The VIP: The next-level package gets you a taste of allllllllllll the tacos (GA gets you five), access to the private VIP lounge, and extra brews. You don't want to share tacos, so get your spot here.
