COLUMBUS, Ind.–Fresh off the ribbon-cutting for the new and improved State Street Project, a Taco Tour event is taking place today from 5 to 8 p.m., with the intent of bringing the east side neighborhood together.
The plan started small, with organizer Erick Ramirez inviting roughly 20 family members and friends to join him for tacos at his favorite State Street restaurants along the corridor. After creating a Facebook event page, the get-together quickly gained the attention of over 1,000 residents. Ramirez contacted the restaurants to formalized the event and get them ready for the rush this evening.
The Taco Tour package includes tickets for one taco from each of six restaurants, two drinks, a sticker, and a magnet. Organizers are setting up at La Guanajuato Taqueria to dispense maps and guides for the tour.
