Taco Tour on Lake Street

Dear Friends:


We wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of you who were able to make it to Taco Tour on Lake Street on Saturday 27th. We had over 2,500 of you tour with us.  Thanks to you it was a very successful event. For those of you who weren't able to make it, we hope we can invite you to future fun events. Thanks to your support we were able to achieve our main objective which was to introduce our Minneapolis and Twin Cities neighbors (we even had visitors from outside the Twin Cities) to the great variety of Latino owned restaurants, shops, and supermarkets on Lake Street.


Many thanks to the Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC) for introducing the idea of promoting the East Lake Street commercial corridor as a fun dining destination and the City of Minneapolis for greatly supporting this idea. Thanks also to Jarritos, Tortilleria la Perla, Coca Cola and Ucare Choices for your generous support in makeing Taco Tour on Lake Street possible. We want to thank the UTKU Productions team for organizing and producing the event and NewPublica for helping promoting it. Last but not least a special thanks to the nine participating restaurants, which included several that had not participated before, for making the second Taco Tour on Lake Street an exquisite dining experience.


WHAT: Taco Tour on Lake Street is a family-friendly event. Join us for free tours for you and your friends! Be a tourist in your own city and discover the foodie wonders that this district has to offer. You will learn about each restaurant, their specialties, their roots in the Latino community, the inspiration for their cuisine and THEIR GREAT PRICES. Several restaurants will feature vegetarian and healthy choices that add to the variety of Mexican cuisine.  Don’t want to hop on the tour with strangers?
