COLUMBUS, Ind.–Fresh off the ribbon-cutting for the new and improved State Street Project, a Taco Tour event has been organized to help bring the neighborhood together, but it will not be on a Tuesday.
The plan started small, with organizer Erick Ramirez inviting roughly 20 family members and friends to join him at his favorite State Street restaurants and check out the new accoutrements along the corridor. After creating an event page on Facebook, it quickly gained the attention of over 1,000 residents. Ramirez contacted the restaurants in order to formalize the event and get them ready for the rush.
The Taco Tour is scheduled for Saturday, June 23, from 5 to 8 p.m., and a Taco Tasting Pre-Order package is being offered for $15, which must be purchased by Thursday, June 21. Included with the package are tickets for one taco from each of six restaurants, two drinks, a sticker, and a magnet. On event night, organizers will be set up at La Guanajuato Taqueria to dispense maps and guides for the tour.
