5 Tips On How To Be A Taco & Tequila Crawl Expert
First off if you are expecting this to be a casual, sit down, quiet, or low key food crawl you better ask for a refund now. If you are expecting it to be a fun party with amazing tacos, tasty margaritas, smooth tequila, DJ’s to dance your buzz off then this is your crawl.
Imagine a food crawl meets a bar crawl that turns into a taco & margarita lovers paradise! Do you think that is something you can handle this Saturday? If so, then we can be best friends!
Now that we covered how epic this party is going to be, we’ll cover some tips to enhance your Taco & Tequila Crawl experience.
Tip 1: Review the map the night before
Yes that is correct. We typically post the map on Thursday (actually for you Atlanta we just posted it a few hours ago.) Check out your favorite tacos & try and hit those early but be flexible. This is a free flowing crawl with 17 stops (15 serving tacos) so if one is packed or busy there is always a tasty option across the street. We ALWAYS suggest trying to get your tacos early (pre-caution for the amount of tequila that is about to hit your blood stream) as it is common sense that a taco may be the freshest at 12:45pm as compared to 5:45pm.
Tip 2: Get your favorite tacos first
We negotiated with each bar to at least supply 750 tacos! We’ve never had a bar run out of tacos in any of the years past (except World of Beer – but they closed two months later and was poorly run). But it is possible that a bar sets up to serve 750 tacos and finishs all their product. That doesn’t mean there won’t be enough tacos for you to stuff your face.. there will be, trust us. 750 tacos x 15 bars = 11,000+ tacos. We have 2,000 crawlers with around 9,500 tabs floating around the crawl. Back to the original tip, get your favorites first while there is little to no line and you are sober enough to wait 😊
Tip 3: Use the Friday night pre-registration.
We offer a Friday night pre-registration for you to come and pick up all your items (wristbands, taco tabs, map, & koozie) for general admission and (tequila shot ticket, t-shirt, wristband, taco tabs, map, & koozie) for VIP.
Checking in Friday allows for you to avoid any registration line on Saturday (because you already picked up your items). It also allows for you to start at any location. VETERN / SAVVY MOVE ALERT: Start at your favorite stop / stops and then go back to the registration party about 2 hours after registration started. You’ll miss the lines and slide right into the party & tacos.
Yes you can check in your friends, family, neighbor, or any random friend you made on the FB event group that sent you their ticket to check them in. All we need is your QR code.
Tip 4: Have a plan but be ready to completely abandon your plan:
You may have your top 5 places to visit but notice the music bumping or vibe coming from a certain place that you hadn’t originally picked. Be spontaneous, check out the new bar, hit the dance floor, and be ready to make hundreds of new friends.
One of your favorite places may have totally screwed the pooch and staffed 2 bartenders or there is a line for the bathroom or whatever the case may be there are so many amazing bars to check out and only 6 hours to do it.
Tip 5: Try and remember your favorite taco, margarita, and bar.. “try”
With all the amazing $3-$5 tequila shot & margarita specials and the possible taco coma you may be in you’ll need to try and remember your favorites. We’ll have an online vote for best taco, best margarita, and best bar atmosphere.
