We checked out our first Wild & Crazy Taco Night last year. A fundraiser to benefit Share Our Selves, it was one of the most well-organized events we attended in recent memory. Whether you're a repeat diner or it's your first time there, the taco lineup is worth studying. We reached out to a few of our favorite spots to inquire about what they planned to serve. Try not to drool too much.
