Marg's Expanding Into New Territory and Concepts -- and Adding Lamb Tacos (Recipe Here!)

Another one of those national food days is coming up, the kind of celebration cooked up by a promotional board to sell more almonds or goat milk. This Saturday it's National Taco Day, which appears to be fabricated with the sole intention of selling novelty calendars. According to nationaltacoday.com, Americans ate more than 4.5 billion tacos last year. To put that in more visual terms, imagine holding one taco in your hand, and then imagine that you have 4.5 billion hands. Marg's World Taco Bistro, with locations in Cherry Creek, LoDo and Uptown, hopes you use at least a couple of those hands to shovel some of its tacos into your mouth. Maybe even braised lamb tacos, which Marg's has been testing at the Cherry Creek location. And that's not all that's new at Marg's: The company is also expanding into new markets with two new restaurant concepts.
