POSTPONED – Due to coronavirus alert
Share Our Selves (SOS) is excited to announce the 27th Annual Wild & Crazy Taco Night on Thursday, April 2nd at SOS in Costa Mesa. SOS is gathering more than 20 of the most awarded and recognized chefs from around Orange County alongside more than 700 foodies and philanthropists for what has become a distinct signature event consisting of unique tacos, craft beer, and inventive margaritas.
As SOS is kicking off a milestone anniversary of 50 years of service, Wild & Crazy Taco Night serves as the first opportunity for the public to celebrate with us. Over the years, OC chefs have continuously performed at their most creative for this event, as they personally compete to come up with the most unique tacos voted on by those in attendance. At last year’s event, the YELP People’s Choice Taco winner (as chosen by attendees) was the “Beauty and the Beast Taco” created by Chef Alessandro Pirozzi of Pirozzi Corona Del Mar, which consisted of a red rose petal infused tortilla, homemade bison sausage, spicy house-made salsa verde, and julienned yellow and pink parsley. Each distinct taco is conceived solely for this event, allowing the discerning guests to enjoy an exclusive experience. Tickets include all-you-can-eat tacos and beverages, including DesMaDre Tequila, margaritas, and beer from Salty Bear Brewing Co.
Another highlight returning this year is the pre-event VIP Party! Participating guests will enjoy early admission, have the opportunity to connect personally with each chef, and sample each delectable taco before general admission attendees. Historically, the VIP Party has sold out every year.
All proceeds benefit the SOS Social Services, providing food, emergency financial relief, homeless support services, and more to our low-income and homeless neighbors.
