Cinco de Mayo at SoCal

Real Mexican tacos are meant to be hot. Here's a way to weed out the wimps.

Any good Mexican will tell you that Mexican food is supposed to be hot. A taco without some piquante? Pfft. A mild burrito? Get out. Apparently the folk at SoCal know this, and they’ve come up with a Cinco de Mayo deal to weed out the wimps — Taco Roulette.

For $16 you and your amigos can grab a plate of four tacos, three of which are your mild variety. But the fourth promises a ‘super hot’ kick we’re betting lies somewhere between that hot sauce you say you like but really you can only just handle and that pepper Homer Simpson ate that one time. A quick Google search tells me the idea is the loser pays; they’re usually easily identified by a shower of profanities or the way they break out in a sweat.

This shindig is put together by SoCal and Corona, so there’ll also be $5 Coronas and Spanish and Mexican tunes playing all night, plus $10 margaritas (regular and chilli varieties) and $20 prawn and chorizo quesadillas for those who’d prefer not to run the risk of temporary tongue damage.
