San Diego Bay Wine + Food Festival Brings Fish Taco TKO Competition To New Venue At Quartyard on November 17 | Enter To Win 2 Tickets To The Ultimate Taco Tuesday

October 28, 2015

Taco Tuesday: (n.) - an event where restaurants and bars offer specials on tacos and beer specifically on a Tuesday. In San Diego, the tradition of Taco Tuesday extends far beyond a weekly ritual - it is part of the city's lifestyle and culture. On Tuesday, November 17, the San Diego Bay Wine + Food Festival gives foodies something to "taco 'bout" with the fourth annual Taco TKO Featuring Fish Taco and Beer at Quartyard San Diego - the ULTIMATE Taco Tuesday! We are raffling off 2 tickets, so read on and be sure to enter.

All San Diegans have a go-to taco joint, and this rough and tumble showdown pits San Diego's top fish taco makers in a head-to-head battle to be crowned San Diego's finest. The heat really rises, as competitors look to unseat two-time Taco TKO champions, Sandbar Sports Grill. Will Sandbar bring home their third consecutive win, or will a new champion be crowned? The power is in the hands of the people as guests vote for their favorite tacos during the walk-around tasting.

Upcoming Top Chef competitor, and Executive Chef of Común Kitchen and Tavern, Chad White serves as a guest judge throughout the lively showdown - providing his picks for best taco, while popular San Diego musician, Mike Myrdal of Dave Mathews Tribute Band, Stepping Feet provides live entertainment throughout the evening.

"No visit to San Diego or "Taco Tuesday" celebration is complete without beer and fish tacos, and Taco TKO provides an authentic taste of San Diego at an affordable price that all foodies can appreciate," said Michelle Metter co-producer of the San Diego Bay Wine + Food Festival. "Each year, the level of competition between local restaurants continues to rise, and we cannot wait to see who is named winner this year, and what unique creation they will present."

The citywide fish taco competition welcomes returning champ Sandbar Sports Grill, as well as The Blind Burro, PB Fish Shop, Don Chido, The Promiscuous Fork, City Taco, Ironside Fish & Oyster and more to participate in this year's competition.

The signature Festival event moves to a new location this year and is held from 6-9pm at Quartyard San Diego - San Diego's first 'pop-up' urban park located in the East Village. Tickets to Taco TKO Featuring Fish Tacos and Beer are on sale for $45 per person and can be purchased online.
