Taqueando Take Over

Hey Taco Lovers Taqueando Fest is back with 5 weeks of amazing tacos. Check out Taqueando Take Over in the DTLA Arts District 10/22 -11/20

Taqueando Takeover. October 22 – November 21

Last June, which seems like a lifetime ago on a different planet, Flux Branding participated in first annual Bill Esparzas Taqueando Fest at the ROW in DTLA.  We offered a mindful coloring booth as a respite from lots of spicy  tacos and booze. Happy people with full bellies and hearts sampled amazing tacos and got creative in our booth. It was super fun! But now the world has changed….

Thankfully Taqueando has risen from the pandemic to create a Taqueando Takeover. Beginning on Thursday October 22 through Saturday November 21 they are taking over what was formerly the famous Arts District space of Church and State, just around the corner from the Flux headquarters. Each week will feature guest taqueras and taqueros with special menus for takeout or dine-in on the restaurant’s patio from 5:30pm -11pm. The bar will be open for dine-in and take out as well.

We checked it out last Friday and loved Surf nTurf taco night with Mariscos Jalisco, we highly recommend the King Titan Tacos,  and Tacos El Ruso with the. amazing carne asade tacos. It was delicious and sitting outside under the lights of the old Church and State was a bit reminiscent of our pre-Covid world.
