Taco lovers will have an embarrassment of riches this week. St. Louis Taco Week
starts today and goes through Sunday, October 16. More than 30 area restaurants will be offering $5 taco specials.
To get started, download the Taco Week app for Apple
. There you can find out which restaurants are participating and what special taco is on offer. You can also track which restaurants you visit because this isn't just a celebration of tacos. This is also a competition.
If you partake in the taco deals at four or more area restaurants over the course of the week, you'll be entered into a drawing for the St. Louis Taco Week grand prize and smaller prizes. Everyone who checks in at four area restaurants on the app is automatically entered.
If you're a committed Luddite, you can pick up a copy of the RFT
(hurry, it's only on newsstands through tomorrow) or go to stltacoweek.com
to find a printable passport with everything you need to know about Taco Week. Have your passport stamped at the restaurants you visit. Then simply submit a photo of your passport here
. All entries must be submitted by Sunday, October 23.
