Yankees might not get it, but here in Texas it seems natural to spend an afternoon in celebration of taco joy. This Saturday we’re doing just that when Houston Press presents Tacolandia, where we careen from booth to booth in search of the perfect taco while luchadores, mariachi and a gigantic Tabasco inflatable keep the theme going. We checked in with Marco Torres, principal photographer for the book The Tacos of Texas, about what to look for. “It’s a combination of three things, number one being the tortilla; it has to be either corn- or flour-based,” says Torres, adding that he’s been training for the taco thing his whole life. “Number two is the filling, something that’s authentic Mexican or something that’s Tex-Mex or something called new American slash fusion taco.” Last but not least is the salsa. “That’s the icing on the cake. You want everything that tastes great and tastes fresh and makes you happy.”

VIP ticket-holders get in at 3 p.m., which means an extra hour of taco love. 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday. The Water Works, 105 Sabine. For information, call 877-987-6487 or visit tacolandiahouston.com.
