Taco & Tequila Fiesta

Cinco De Mayo at SoCal

During May 2018, we celebrated Cinco De Mayo by hosting a week-long fiesta of tacos, tequila, live entertainment, a ‘My Taco Rules’ championship, charity street-art battles + a HOT chilli eating contest!

Our Taco & Tequila Fiesta will return in May 2019 to commemorate Cinco De Mayo – an annual holiday in Puebla, Mexico, which recognises the unlikely victory of the Mexican army over the French army on May 5, 1862.
