Guactacular 2013

This is year 5. Remember year 1: 350+ people landed upon the Bell House’s front lounge much to my surprise. We ran out of chips, we ran out for chips, and then we ran out of chips. It was a crazy time. And now we’re here in year 5. So we’re doing something special. This year’s Guactacular is going to be a day of fun.

Guac Rock: Let there be food!

In case you are wondering if you’re going to be hungry upon the ship this year, beyond the mounds of guacamole we will be serving you. This year we’ve tapped an old friend, Brooklyn Taco. We met them long ago when we were stationed together at the Artists and Fleas Market in Williamsburg and since then they’ve moved on to dominating the taco scene at the Essex Street Market and the Hester Street Fair. They will be bringing us their famous Guaco Taco along with other delicious specialties.
