Earlier today, Our Man Sietsema turned his thoughts to the burrito. This weekend, Nick Suarez and Theo Peck invite you to turn your own thoughts – and stomachs and dollars – to the taco.
On Sunday, the Brooklyn Taco Experiment will take place at the Bell House from 1-5pm. The stakes are even higher for Peck and Suarez’s third experiment: Cascabel’s Todd Mitgang, Calexico’s David Vendley, and the Red Hook ballfield’s Cesar Fuentes — people who know from tacos — will be among the judges, and the grand prize is two round-trip tickets to Mexico. We can only begin to guess at the fillings competitors will dream up, but can wager that fish tacos and a sterno lighter won’t be a winning combination, and that at least one person’s going to find a way to stick chocolate and fleur de sel in a tortilla.
