Right now, general admission tickets will set you back $35 — you'll get unlimited taco samples and can buy beer and cocktails from several on-site bars. For $75, you can get a Margarita Mile VIP ticket, which gets you into the event an hour early (skip those lines, baby), unlimited taco samples, access to a VIP lounge and VIP-only tacos from Cafe Herrera and Beto & Son, four drink tickets for the VIP bar and access to VIP restrooms. If you want VIP tickets, act fast — they're close to selling out.

The event is 21+ (bring your ID) and a portion of the proceeds benefit North Texas Food Bank. If you don't have tickets yet, grab them soon — prices increase the day of the event.
