San Diego Reader Is Searching For City's Best Taco | Save $5 on Passes And Enter To Win 2 VIP Tickets To Tacotopia on Saturday, May 16

April 27, 2015

The San Diego Reader is on search to find the best taco in San Diego, and at the inaugural Reader Tacotopia at Golden Hill Park on Saturday, May 16, over 30 of the top eateries in America's Finest City will compete for cash prizes and bragging rights. The participants for this event were carefully curated by food writers at Reader, and hey, we at SanDiegoVille even gave our input. The best part about Tacotopia is that attendees pick the champion. After trying signature tacos from as many restaurants as possible, each attendee will place their token in a voting box on the table of their favorite vendor. The vendor who receives the most tokens wins the title of "Best Taco in San Diego" and $1,000! We're giving away 2 VIP tickets to this almost-sold-out event and also offering promo code SANDIEGOVILLE for $5 savings on any ticket type. Read on for all the details and be sure to enter.

At Tacotopia, while you eat your weight in tacos and bask in the San Diego sunshine, there will be live music from some of Tijuana's best bands, as well as a full cash bar serving beer, wine and cocktails. General Admission tickets for this 21+ event are $30 ($35 at the door) and provide entry from 1pm-4pm and include tacos from all vendors (while supplies last). VIP tickets are $45 ($50 at the door) and provide early entry starting at noon, as well as samples of all tacos and 2 drink tickets.
