The Blind Burro's Taco Fights are back by popular demand and for the second time this year, six talented local chefs will face off every Tuesday for the chance at TACO GLORY! The taco fights will kick off on October 7 from 7-9pm and return every week until the winner is crowned at the finale on October 28. Attendees get the chance to try each of the chef's prepared tacos and cast a vote for whose is best. Admission to the events are free and it's only $6 to try the featured tacos (for both) or $10 with an added beer pairing.
Last February, the first Taco Fights took place and included chefs Chad White, Hanis Cavin, Rich Sweeney, Isabel Cruz, Miguel Ángel Guerrero and Blind Burro's home team led by Chef Sara Polczynski. With home field advantage on her side, Chef Sara came away with the honors and won the inaugural Taco Fight. This October's event will be just as exciting and include the following schedule:
Tuesday, Oct. 7 - ROUND 1
Flor Franco (Indulge Contemporary Cuisine/ Convivia Cantina Artesanal)
