Happy Throwback Thursday! Make a lunch date today at Civic Center Park, where Civic Center Eats, the city's largest gathering of food trucks, is on a roll, with dozens of dining choices from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. You'll find plenty of seating and booths to browse, too, including the Westword table, where our Street Team is rolling back the cost of general admission Tacolandia tickets.
Tacolandia, our annual celebration of street tacos, will be in Civic Center Park on Sunday, August 20, and the details are looking plenty tasty, with forty restaurants and taquerias offering all the street tacos you can eat from 4 to 7 p.m. for $35 for a general admission ticket or $75 for VIP (which will also net you some delicious special treats from Lola Coastal Mexican).
But do we have a deal for you: On Throwback Thursday, you can get a Tacolandia GA ticket for the introductory price of just $25...only today, and only at Civic Center Park. Civic Center Eats is sponsored by the Civic Center Conservancy; find out more here. To grab your $25 Tacolandia tickets, just get over there!
And for another taste of Tacolandia, go to the Westword Facebook page at 4 p.m. today, August 17, for a Facebook Live broadcast from Chuey Fu's. Find out more about Tacolandia at westwordtacolandia.com.
