Tacolandia 2014: Post Your Live Commentaries and After-Event Reports Here!

I did one of these for Tacolandia last year, and it was pretty successful, I think. I was trying to decide if we should just continue in the the existing pre-event discussion thread for this year, but I figure it'd be nice to have a clean slate to work with.

If you'll be at Tacolandia today, please post your live comments and photos if you get a chance, or after the event if you want to just focus on the food while you're there. Those who can't make it, feel free to make comments or ask questions. This should be fun!

Last Year's Report Thread:
This Year's Pre-Event Discussion:

Reminder: Those of us attending, we will try to meet up at the Eggslut stand at 4:30 PM. Check this thread on your mobile if you can, in case things change.

              Nice. Right up my alley.
              Same w other. 3 porks? Cheech?

              1. re: jessejames

                Fried pig ears, pig tails, cueritos (pickled pork rind).

                1. re: jessejames

                  It was like pho tendon. Better than the dick I ate at feng Mao that's for sure.

                  1. re: ns1

                    Guessing truffle scallop better!

                    1. re: jessejames

                      THERE WAS A TRUFFLE SCALLOP TACO?!?!

                      1. re: ns1

                        My bad said mushroom truffles scapes.

                    2. re: ns1

                      Completely agree -- I liked it to beef tendon as well. And it was fantastic.

                      1. re: phamschottler

                        I didn't particularly care for it TBH. I note in the trash can that there were many people who did not care for it.

                    1. re: jessejames

                      It was good. Had roe in them, like shishamo.

                      1. re: TheOffalo

                        U guys did good. So how many tacos did u tackle? I'm impressed with the clever kinds.

                        1. re: jessejames

                          15 or so. I blame that on my late arrival.

                          1. re: ns1

                            But guessing no midnite snack either !

                            1. re: jessejames

                              About to kill a Spumoni bar from quenelle. Some of that lobster chorizo fundito would be killer right now though.

                              I didn't eat anything before tacolandia - just coffee lol

                            2. re: ns1

                              15 uniques, 20 or so with repeats. I blame the stupid drink line.

                    2. Came so late but still so full

                        Sorry, we didn't get to meet up.

                        1. re: TheOffalo

                          Got there at 445 by that time just wanted to destroy everything.
