On Sunday, August 14, Westword will host Tacolandia, a celebration of the city's street tacos in all their tortilla-wrapped glory. Join us at Sports Authority Field to enjoy unlimited samples from many of Denver's top taquerias, cantinas, Mexican restaurants and food trucks, including Tacos Jalisco Mexican Food, a favorite in the Berkeley neighborhood.
Tacos Jalisco, at 4309 West 38th Avenue, has been dishing up some of Denver's best Mexican cuisine since 1991. Dinner always starts with a basket of chips and four types of fresh salsas. Margaritas are a specialty, but you can also quench your thirst with a piña colada or a daiquiri before diving into queso fundido, fajita-style nachos, enchiladas or combination plates.
Tacos Jalisco will bring those four famous salsas — chipotle, verde, guacamole and tomatillo — to Tacolandia, where you'll be able to sample them atop the eatery's tacos de carnitas. You'll also be able to enjoy the restaurant's top-notch green chile.
For a taste of all of this and more, pick up Tacolandia tickets for $40 for general admission, which gets you unlimited food samples and entertainment from 4 to 7 p.m.; a $75 VIP ticket allows early entry into the event at 3 p.m., plus two Estrella Jalisco beers and plenty of surprises...including food from chef Jamey Fader of Lola.
Get your tickets now at westwordtacolandia.com. (If you hurry, you might still be able to snag a fiesta four-pack: four GA tickets for just $100.)
