The Blind Burro’s Taco Fights 3 begins on Tuesday, February 10, from 7-9pm, and continues every Tuesday until March 3 when a winner is crowned. The highly anticipated and well-attended taco making competition has a new “Iron Chef” twist this time around. Six talented local chefs will be required to use an ingredient voted by the public on The Blind Burro’s Facebook page the week prior to every competition. The attendees can try each of the chef's prepared tacos ($9 for both) and cast a vote for whose taco is best, all while enjoying great drink specials. Admission to the competitions is free.
