Bike in your time...

Or just walk...

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 this past Saturday. We had over 1,500 of you tour with us. Twice as many as our most optimistic projections. 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 to UCare and Cycles for Change for your support and for helping promote at the tour healthy choices. We want to also thank the UTKU Productions team for organizing and producing the event and LCN media for promoting it. And special thanks to the 15 participating restaurants for making the first Taco Tour on Lake Street an exquisite dinning experience.
