Join us at the 23rd Annual Wild & Crazy Taco Night on Thursday, April 14th at Share Our Selves in Costa Mesa. Twenty-four of Orange County’s most outstanding restaurants will join an expected 700 supporters of SOS for a casual evening of beer, margaritas, and exceptional tacos. In the spirit of good-natured competition and to support a great cause, these generous chefs will be whipping up delicious and unique tacos. The chefs’ creativity is endless and the food leaves guests talking for the rest of the year! Tickets include all-you-can-eat tacos, and beverages including DesMaDre Tequila margaritas and local favorite Barley Forge Brewing Co. beer. New this year, Premiere Sponsor Yelp will be hosting a competition for the best taco. Each guest will get a bottle cap at check-in, and will be able to vote for their favorite taco at the Yelp booth during the event.
Back by popular demand is the pre-event VIP Party! Participating guests will enjoy early admission and have the opportunity to meet all of the chefs and sample their tacos before the general event begins. The VIP Party has sold out every year. Proceeds from the event benefit the SOS Food Pantry, which provides critical food security to low-income and homeless Orange County residents. Volunteer and staff drivers collect food from grocery stores, restaurants, bakeries and caterers throughout Orange County and deliver it to SOS. Five days a week, SOS distributes an average of 230 bags of groceries a day to individuals and families in need.
