FRIDA TACOS is extremely proud to be a participant in this amazing event, which gathers over 80 vendors and celebrates the art of signature Mexican cuisine. Several of our Taste of Mexico amigos will be there too, including Coni’ Seafood, La Monarca Bakery, Loteria and Mexicali. And if you’re wondering what will be on the FRIDA menu, prepare yourself for endless plates of pollo, carnitas, steak and cochinita pibil!

Tacolandia is also putting a big emphasis on FUN, with live mariachi music, cocktails and a special awards celebration honoring LA’s best vendors (don’t forget to vote for FRIDA 😉 ). If that wasn’t enough, attending Tacolandia also helps a very good cause. This year, a portion of every ticket sold will go to benefit the El Pueblo Park Association, which honors the historic culture of Los Angeles.

Tickets are definitely moving fast and, if you get yours soon, you can still benefit from an Advanced Sales discount. Check out the LA Weekly’s Tacolandia page for details and make sure to join us at El Pueblo de Los Angeles on June 6. It’s going to be a very TASTY event!

For year three, we’ve brought on even more top tier Mexican restaurants, including El Coraloense, Casa Cabo, Ricky’s Fish Tacos and Casa Oaxaca. Plus all of your past favorites like La Monarca, Gueleguetza, La Casita Mexicana, Loteria, Yuca’s, Coni Seafood and MexiKosher.

Bottom line — This event is going to be BIG and we’d love for you to join us.

Entry tickets get you unlimited samplings from every restaurant, along with Tequila Tastings, exotic beers and 6 hours of live entertainment! You will also come face-to-face with the proprietors of all your favorite Mexican restaurants (including our own Vicente Del Rio). Ask about your favorite dishes, pose for photographs and learn firsthand what goes into authentic Mexican cuisine.

Mariachi fans are in for a big treat too, as we’re bringing along some of the most talented musicians in Southern California. We’ve also got world-famous mixologists Pablo Moix and Steve Livigni and plenty of surprise guests (remember Kate del Castillo and Diego Boneta from year two?).

The good news is, tickets are still on sale. But they’re getting swooped up fast, so we encourage you to head to the TOM website and place your order. Same as last year, we’re offering $50 General Admission entries and $70 VIP Packages, which include front-of-the-line access and exclusive mezcal tasting!

We’ll be live Tweeting from TOM too, so make sure to follow our feeds for a bundle of food and drink pictures. Trust us when we say that this is the Mother of all Mexican food events.

TASTE OF MEXICO 2013 is just a few short days away and we’d love to see you there!

Special Pre-Sale Price For Taste Of Mexico Tickets!

15 Jul

Hola FRIDA fans,

Back by popular demand, our TASTE OF MEXICO event is returning to downtown Los Angeles this October. And best of all, we’re offering a special pre-sale price if you enter the promotional code LASFF13 before buying your tickets.

Now as you probably know, TOM has become one of Southern California’s most popular “foodie” phenomenons. Not only is FRIDA a major participant, so is Guelaguetza, La Monarca Bakery and La Casita Mexicana. And this year, several other top Mexican restaurants have signed on too, including Loteria, MexiKosher, Coni’Seafood, Yuca’s and Casa Oaxaca!

Keep in mind that TOM covers a lot more than Mexican appetizers, entrees and desserts. We’ll be serving up delicious margaritas too, as well as high-end tequilas and buckets of cold cerveza. We’ll also have an evening’s worth of live entertainment, including some of the most talented mariachis in SoCal! The event takes place during Hispanic Heritage Month at downtown L.A.’s La Plaza de Cultura y Artes. October 11 is the big day and we’ll be selling both traditional entry tickets and special VIP packages!

Now here’s the really good part. Through the end of this month, fans can get $20 off the VIP price by entering the promotional code LASFF13 on Eventbrite. If you want a discount off the regular price, enter the code LASFF. Either way, it’s win/win and a fantastic way to spend an October Friday night.

Just remember, the discounts only work until July 31. So make sure to visit Eventbrite and get your tickets today.

See you all at TASTE OF MEXICO 2013!
