Taco Knockdown | Eat Drink SF 2017 | Kick Off Party

Taco Knockdown | Eat Drink SF 2017 | Kick Off Party

Taco Knockdown is officially an Eat Drink SF launch party tradition. Now in its third year, we are moving locations for an even bigger kickoff party. This year, Taco Knockdown will be at The Pearl (601 19th St.) and more than a dozen chefs will compete in a creative battle for the “taco” title. (Yes, “taco”. Think foldable food inspired by the legacy of the taco.) The competition will be fierce and the tacos (and "tacos") inspired. Guests can attempt to try and judge all competing tacos and all competing margaritas in this year's Milagro Margarita Mix-Off. It's an effort fit for the most ambitious and indulgent among you. BYO stretchy pants. A panel of expert judges will vote for the Best Overall winner; last year it was Trick Dog's agua chile shrimp taco. Guests will cast their vote for the People's Choice winner; Palm House's Hawaiian smoked brisket in a wonton shell took home the prize in 2016.
