Share Our Selves' 24th Annual Wild & Crazy Taco Night

The 24th Annual Wild & Crazy Taco Night is happening Thursday, April 20th at Share Our Selves in Costa Mesa, more than 25 of Orange County’s most celebrated chefs will join an expected 700 supporters of SOS for a casual evening of beer, margaritas and unique and delicious tacos.

See your favorite OC chefs at their most creative as they compete to come up with the most unusual tacos you’ll see all year, all for a great cause. In 2016, the top-rated taco as chosen by attendees was the Nashville Hot Chicken Taco from Island Hotel’s Chef David Man. Other delectable options included a beef tongue taco from Haven Gastropub’s Chef Greg Daniels, a lamb bacon “PB & J” taco from taco asylum’s Chef Sean Masucci, and a “Bacon & Eggs” taco from Pirozzi Corona del Mar’s Chef Alessandro Pirozzi. All tacos are conceived exclusively for this event and can’t be found anywhere else! Tickets include all-you-can-eat tacos and beverages, including DesMaDre Tequila margaritas and beer from local favorite Barley Forge Brewing Co.

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 235 bags of groceries a day to individuals and families in need.
