Some of the city's best taquerias are descending on downtown's Grand Park this Saturday, April 20th. The expansive green destination will play host to ten or so of the greatest confirmed taco purveyors that Los Angeles has to offer, as curated by the website L.A. Taco. Their annual Taco Madness tournament bears the same name as this street festival, and generally features the same heavy-hitters in their final standings. Mariscos Jalisco, the shrimp tacos dorados truck and Mexicali Taco have both won the tournament outright, and for the park party they'll be joined by MexiKosher, Leo's Taco Truck, Tacos Punta Cabras from Santa Monica and more. The event is free, with each of the vendors operating on a pay-per-taco platform. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday.
