Tacos, tunes and tequila are the main attractions at a new-to-Dallas festival called ¡Taco Libre!.
Attendees at the June 27 event in Main Street Garden in downtown Dallas will find these places slingin' tacos: Revolver Taco Lounge, Urban Taco, Chile Pepper Grill, Trompo, La Nueva Fresh & Hot, Taco Heads, El Tizoncito, El Come Taco, Salsa Limon, Taco Stop, El Padrino and Good 2 Go Taco.
(Revolver Taco Lounge in Fort Worth is slated to close at the end of June and later reopen in Deep Ellum, reports our Leslie Brenner -- so June 27 is a great time to try their tacos before they temporarily vanish.)
Tickets for Taco Libre cost $12 for entry between 2 and 5 p.m. on June 27. (Those ticketholders can stay all day as long as they arrive in the 2-5 p.m. window.) Arrive after 5 p.m. and a ticket costs $22. VIP tickets -- which include two drinks, a take-home mug and access to special seating, bars and bathrooms -- cost $60.
Once inside, patrons will have to buy each taco individually. They start at $2.
Latin band Ozomatli will headline the fest. Other musical performances include Deep Blue Something, PiñataProtest, TEAM*, Party Static and Dustin Cavazos.
Here's where I'll be between tacos: Watching Dallas-based lucha libre wrestlers, who will perform all day when musicians aren't on stage. Fun!
