Rise News partner MIAbites and The Liquid Projects presentTaco & Tequila Showdown #TNTShowdown on November 8th and tickets are ON SALE for $65 pp thru Eventbrite link here

There’s no hotter duo in food and beverage right now than tacos and tequila. So now…imagine 12 of Miami’s hottest chefs and taquerias making their interpretation of the best taco, each aside a bartender making a bespoke tequila cocktail to pair with each taco and then judged to crown the winners. The Liquid Projects and MIAbites present the hottest event of the year:

The Taco & Tequila Showdown (#TNTShowdown) 

at Vagabond Restaurant and Bar -Sunday November 8, 2015 6-9 pm

Each of the participating chefs, led by Vagabond Restaurant & Bar host chef, Alex Chang, will create their signature taco using either soft or hard, corn or flour tortillas and be as creative as they want with the ingredients.  Attendees will have chance to vote for the Peoples Choice for favorite taco and favorite tequila drink, while an esteemed panel of judges led by The Miami Herald Food Editor, Evan Benn, Broken Shaker alum, Gabe Orta, Adri Garcia, of Verde Kitchen Cafeand food blogger, Nidal Barake @YoCulinario will select their Best in Show winners.

It is our belief that no food and beverage event would be complete without including and supporting a local industry non-profit. Therefore, we are delighted to partner with the Urban Oasis Project, (think Upper East Side Farmers Market – close to Vagabond) and founder of Verde Community Gardens Market and Cafe who has joined us to work with our chefs and bartenders with 20% of ticket sales donated to UOP to support their program of doubling the value of food stamps at local Farmer’s Markets.
