Tijuana Innovadora's culinary battles, Batalla Culinaria, take place this weekend, October 18 and 19, at Tijuana’s Caliente Racetrack, and we're giving away a pair of VIP passes to both the women's battle AND the men's battle, both taking place on Saturday. Watch as the best chefs from both sides of the border come together to battle it out Iron Chef-style, while enjoying tastes and samples from over 30 vendors.
