Westword's Tacolandia was the hottest party in town on Sunday, August 14, as more than thirty restaurants, taquerias and food trucks converged on Sports Authority Field to present a vast variety of tacos to the growing crowd, which kept cool with Estrella Jalisco beer and Exotico margaritas. Attendees had their choice of every imaginable taco style, from traditional al pastor and carnitas to Korean barbecue tacos to vegan Indian tacos. Classic cars, street art, folk dancers and Latin bands kept the crowd entertained while the grills sizzled.
