Austin Taco Takedown – unsheath your laser swords and fights!!!!

tacoaustinCALL FOR AUSTIN HOME COOKS! Email me at chilitakedown@gmail.com to compete for huge prizes (see below!)!!! El Milagro sponsors!

I get to visit Austin a couple times a year- to eat tacos at the finest taco places, find out about migas and melt brains on good Tex Mex.  Why can’t NYC understand tacos like Austin do? Why is Tex Mex apparently impossible to pull off anywhere out East?  And why do Austin’s homecooks be so handsome? I want to see them food fight! Don’t you?

March 15 2-4PM at Shangri La - during SXSW!!! Eat a bajillion home made tacos as Austin’s home cooks reimagine, or go authentic, depending on what’s their fancies…

WANT TO EAT MUCH TACOS? TICKETS HERE!

PS  Takedown art this time is by Viking Truthslayer Andy Belanger, also noted for his work with The Sword, Austin’s most furious of righteous bands!!!!
