Crazy Taco Night

Was sorting through the mail the other day and saw the Hoag Hospital Quarterly Newsletter. I guess they send these out to everybody in the county. I flipped through it trying to act like I was paying attention to it (you know, it's about health maintenance and all) before throwing it away and out of the corner of my eye I saw where it said something about "Crazy Taco Night." This is what it said:

Enjoy exotic tacos and support a great cause

You are cordially invited to attend the 13th Annual Wild and Crazy Taco Night on Thursday, April 27 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. This fun and festive event takes place at Share Our Selves (SOS) and features many of Orange County's most prominent chefs who creatively concoct unique and delicious tacos.
Tickets are $50 per person by advanced sale only and can be purchased by calling SOS at 949/642-3451. All proceeds benefit the SOS Orange Aid project, which feeds up to 200 Orange County families each day.

$35 of the $50 counts as a tax-deductible donation. This is a good chance in our prosperous county to get some good food, but, more importantly, to help out those who are less fortunate. Out of all the participating restaurants sending their chefs to participate in the event none of them appear to be Mexican so it'll be interesting to see what they come up with. Can't wait to try a taco from Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine.

UPDATE: The Orange County Register today (April 20, 2006) highlights the Crazy Taco Night in their Life, etc. Wine & Food section. There are eight full-color pictures in print and online. The OC Register asked me to take down the one picture I had used from their article before and said I could pay them for its use. It would cost $35 for a non-profit organization to use a picture or $250 for a commercial organization to use one. Well, my blog is entirely non-profit but it's too piddly to even bother filing for non-profit status so I gave in to the corporate machinery and took the picture down.

FINAL UPDATE: Our review of the event can be seen here.
