According to various published reports, the country where tacos are eaten the most is (drum roll please): Norway.
Norway? Yes it seems it's the Friday night fav in that northern country, maybe because it's basic construction is so easy: just wrap a tortilla around some meat and/or veggies and go for it.
In October, the Houston Press will be giving you the chance to give Norwegians a run for their money, when it hosts the fifth annual Tacolandia event at The Water Works at Buffalo Bayou Park. The event runs from 4-7 p.m. with early (3 p.m.) admission for those purchasing VIP tickets.
There's a special deal in place that will make this even more manageable for your wallet. That's the Fiesta with your Friends 4 Pack which features 4 general admission tickets for $100 ($25 per ticket and $40 savings,) unlimited taco samples, with beer and cocktails available for purchase. But this is a limited-time offer that ends on October 13, 2019 "or while supplies last."
Your other ticket options:
VIP Admission Ticket: $75 will increase to $85 day of event
