This week’s #TacoTuesday post is a bit different.
You see, Tacos & Tunes are not offered on Tuesdays. But these events obviously revolve around tacos, so I just had to share about it with you.
Tacos and Tunes is a monthly event that breaks the barriers between local Dallas musicians and their fans, all while feeding both parties tacos. It rolls around toward the end of the month and only costs $10 for entry and two tacos.
Every artist featured is a Dallas local, every taco is locally made and every venue is a local hot spot.
I went to my first T&T on Friday night.
As a wannabe on-and-off singer-songwriter, I was absolutely delighted. I love hearing humble musicians sing their stories of heartbreak and hope and healing. It takes so much boldness to share one’s past, present and future in front of strangers.
This month’s venue was originally at the Wall Gallery, but moved last minute to American Beauty Mill, these gorgeous and isolated apartments south of downtown near Gilley’s. 50 fans got all cozy in an open loft and listened in. One of the musicians, Chris Taylor, also painted during the others’ performances. It was a treat for the eyes and ears.
And mouth, because the tacos were great.
I strongly recommend keeping up with Tacos and Tunes on Facebook and Instagram, so you know when the next show comes around.
Frankies is a quaint Mexican cuisine restaurant located just a hop, skip and a jump away from my home.
Started by a family in the neighborhood, Frankie’s brings fresh and tasty food to your table with the friendliness of a local hot spot.
Their food is always fresh and fast, never wrong or regrettable. Today, my friends and I received our meals just 5 minutes after ordering. Halfway into my taco, I realized I hadn’t take a picture yet–I was obviously too eager when it first came to our table.
If you’re ever in North Richardson or near University of Texas at Dallas, swing by Frankies for #tacothesday or grab a margarita during Happy Hour. You won’t regret it!
I’ve always been a taco enthusiast.
It’s meat and cheese and veggies and more all squished into a round, flour (or corn) tortilla and hand-delivered straight into your mouth. What a novel idea.
Each Tuesday from here on out, I will feature local and chain taco-selling restaurants. If I don’t get a chance to blog about them, make sure to check out our Instagram.
Our first #TacoTuesday feature is Fuzzy’s.
Fuzzy’s was founded in Austin and moved to the Dallas area sometime while I was in highschool — aka 4+ years ago. Wow. That makes me feel old.
The taco chain sells tasteful tacos at reasonable prices and crazy, huge margaritas for only $5ish. Though they’re not the best tacos I’ve ever tasted, they’re definitely a great deal, and I recommend going at least every now and then.
It’s a great place to grab a quick bite, watch the latest sports game or catch up with friends you haven’t seen in a while.
