If America is known for its love of apple pie, then Southern California is known for its love of tacos. Whether hard or soft, street or gourmet, OC has some of the best around. The Muckenthaler Cultural Center capitalizes on our adulation of this Mexican culinary delight by taking the taco global during their Fourth Annual Summer Solstice and International Taco Festival. Prepared by local chefs, these tacos send your taste buds on a world trip with Greek, Filipino, Finnish, Moroccan, and other exotic twists on this tortilla-swaddled favorite. The event also features live music by Trio Ellas, Incendio, and Ray Goren, plus craft beer from Bootlegger’s Brewery, and tequila from Tres Sietes.
