What's better than a Taco Tuesday? A Taco Thursday, of course! Join us on Thursday, June 1 at Candela Taco Bar & Lounge in Mid-City for Time Out L.A.'s first-ever taco tasting. You'll get taco tastings from Candela Taco Bar & Lounge, Little Llama Peruvian Tacos, Tlayuda LA, La Flor de Yucatan, Loteria Grill, Chicas Tacos and Mas Malo (who will also be serving Echo Park Corn on the Cob). Wash it all down with two complimentary crafted cocktails from Cocktail Academy and Hornitos Tequila, as well as a yummy paleta (that's a Mexican ice pop!) from Si Paleta for dessert. Taco 'bout a fun night!

Enjoy a live DJ set, Time Out Giveaway, and photo ops all night long, including a "Picture Yourself at the Bowl" photo booth presented by the LA Phil. If you want to keep the fiesta going once your drink tickets are gone, Candela will offer a cash bar. 

Choose between two sessions: 6:30 to 8pm or 8:30 to 10pm. Or, go big and choose our VIP session from 6 to 8pm, which includes 30-minute early entry and an unlimited chips and guacamole bar from 6 to 6:30pm. 

Early-bird tickets are just $20, so grab 'em fast! GA tickets are $25, VIP tickets are $35 and we'll be selling tickets at the door for $30. You must be 21 to attend, and street parking is limited (while drinks at that cash bar are not!), so we suggest ride-sharing. If you do drive, valet is available for $8. 

Tickets and more information are available here. See you there, taco tasters!
