A notoriously anti-biking metroplex, the current City of Dallas Bike Plan has been completely stalled as a result of the lack of the estimated 16 million dollars it will take to re-strip 840 lane miles for bikes.

Tacopalooza? Sure, why not. This event is brought to Dallas by the good folks that pulled off Mods versus Rockers in Dallas last weekend, David Marett, and craveDFW’s own TacoBot glam girl Daniel Leahy. The event will feature tacos from across the Dallas taco plains, replete with taco eating contests, bands, PBR and much talk about tacos.
The event takes place Saturday, May 5, 2012 at Bryan Street Tavern, the place for good tacos, PBR and bands, and begins at 1pm. The event culminates later in the evening with the taco judgment and ends at 7pm.
You won’t want to miss this one.
