Photos and Recap: Kobayashi Swallows 81 Tacos at the Gringo Bandito Taco Challenge

A concerned mother motions her children away from the table, one that has suddenly been transformed into massive human garbage disposal. 

The five men standing behind it keep on shoveling and inhaling, their faces red, their cheeks puffed like blowfish. Bits of carnage fly toward those brave enough to stand in the front row. 
“It's sweet mayhem,” describes Dexter Holland, Offspring frontman and the mastermind behind the day's event, the Gringo Bandito Taco Challenge. “An explosion of tacos!”
