SoCal Taco & Tequila Fiesta 2021 Recap
Last week we held our Taco & Tequila Fiesta at SoCal to celebrate Cinco De Mayo.
It was a huge week of festivities, specials & good times!
Thanks to everyone that joined us for what was an awesome week. With Comedy Night, All You Can Eat Tacos, our Cocktail Masterclass, Chilli Eating Contest & our Taco & Tequila Feast, it was one big party!
Our venue was turned into a Mexican wonderland, decked out in colourful & bright decorations. We had a number of new specials for the week, with $10 Tommy’s Margaritas, dessert taco specials, a tequila tasting paddle & taco roulette.

- 1300 people climbed the SoCal stairs to celebrate with us
- We drank 1250 Altos Tequila Margaritas together

- Together we ate 3089 tacos

In collaboration with Laugh Mob, our Comedy Night featured some of the best comedians in Sydney & drew in a great crowd. Everyone spent the night laughing away while enjoying their welcome cocktail & snacking on delicious SoCal dishes.
All You Can Eat Tacos:
We held the ultimate Taco Tuesday, for $35pp everyone enjoyed all you can eat tacos & a Tommy’s Margarita on arrival! Guests could choose between several of our delicious tacos, with no limit on how many you could eat. Everyone left happy with a stomach full of tacos!
On Wednesday we celebrated Cinco De Mayo with our Tequila Cocktail Masterclass. Held by Applejack Group Bars Manager lachy, guests learned to stir, shake & strain classic tequila cocktails (and enjoy their creations). With live music & face painters, it was an awesome way to celebrate Cinco De Mayo!
Chilli Eating Contest:
On Thursday we held our legendary Chilli Eating Contest! It was a contest like we had never seen before, with 10 serious competitors, who somehow seemed to keep powering through the heat. By the last round we still had several contestants left, each consuming the dreaded Carolina Reaper (the hottest chilli in the world). After getting down to 2 contestants, it didn’t look like the end was in sight… so it all came down to who could finish a Carolina Reaper the quickest (keep in mind they had already consumed 10+ each), in the end we crowned our winner… Señor Chilli Pants!
It was a fun night, with live music, an awesome crowd, and an even better show! Congratulations to all who took part in our contest, it will go down as one of the toughest SoCal Chilli Eating Contests yet!
Taco & Tequila Feast:
Saturday night we held our Taco & Tequila Feast. Guests enjoyed a feast of SoCal dishes & a tasty drinks package. Live music, great specials & Saturday night vibes made it an amazing night and great end to our Fiesta week.
Thanks to everyone who joined us throughout our Fiesta week!
Stay tuned for next year… our fiesta will be back bigger & better than ever!
