This chance to eat tacos from more than a dozen local taquerias in one place will return this year with a couple of changes: The event moves from June to April, and there will be more space to accommodate crowds. But the best part will not change: Taco Trail's José R. Ralat has chosen the participating taquerias, including El Tizoncito, Revolver Taco Lounge, Tacodeli and El Come Taco. In addition, there will beer, tequila, lucha libre wrestling and live music.
