Join Chuy Gomez along with La Cocina, Mezcalistas, and Pro Wrestling Revolution, LLC for a taquiza, lucha libre, live music, art and mezcal tasting in celebration of community and the incredibly talented chefs and community organizations who’ve helped shape it…
Pier 70 SF
$2 tacos, lucha libre, mezcal, music, art and Donald Trump piñatas.
General admission tickets are on sale now for $25 with front row seats available for $35. Guests can also select the El Ring All-Access Package including front row seats, taco and drink tokens, plus early access to the event for a private photo opp inside the ring with a Luchador(a).
If you love tacos, come pay witness to the battle. Chefs representing the best of the Bay, many of whom hail from Mexico City, Cuernavaca, Acambaro and other regions across Mexico, will be divided into two teams: los técnicos and los rudos (the good guys and the bad guys) and will don máscaras (masks) for the duration of the event.
At the end of the night, guests will vote for their favorite tacos and the losing team, in typical Lucha Libre fashion, will be forced to remove their masks and reveal their identity in defeat.
Battling tacos include Chicharron Tropical, Lamb Barbacoa, Salvadoran Barbacoa, Beef Short Rib Barbacoa, Yucatecan Slow-Roasted Pork, Sumac Roasted Chicken, Wax Moth Larvae, Masala + more!
