It’s hard to believe Cinco de Mayo is almost upon us (this Sunday!), and to celebrate Thrillist is hosting a “Taco Knockout” at Villain located in our very own Williamsbug. The event will include 10 taco stands with offerings from El Perro Meximus from Los Perros Locos: a deep-fried tortilla stuffed with a hot dog (of course), grilled corn kernels, crushed Fritos, and crumbled chorizo, NY Sushi Ko, another to-come joint on the LES, will let you preview their work with a taco created solely from Japanese flavors including a crispy wonton shell, uni, myoga, cukes, and smashed wasabi peas on top, and even a pizza taco from Best Pizza which has chopped-up bits of meatball which are cooked to resemble the texture of chorizo, then topped with mozz and red sauce, and plopped in a pizza dough tortilla, and many more. If it’s booze you’re after, there’s a build-your-own Michelada bar, and beer pushcarts plying you with unlimited brews.
Tickets are $45 general admission which includes unlimited cervezas, unlimited micheladas, & five tacos.
The special admission is $75 and includes ten tacos, unlimited booze, and a specialty margarita bar. Buy your tickets here.
