Forty chefs from the New Orleans area have been set a challenge: Who can make the best taco? Complete with tequila pairings and live music from Los Poboycitos, Otra, Muevelo, and Mariachi Jalisco, the festival stems from Colorado, with Top Taco Denver kicking off in 2014. But we have a feeling New Orleans will bring a certain flair to its own inaugural outing. 5:30 pm–9:30 pm at Riverwalk's Spanish Plaza. Tickets run from $65–$125. toptaconola.com.
