October 4th Is ’National Taco Day’! How Will You Celebrate?!<3 <3 Oh, Tacos.... How we love you <3 <3
If you're like a large majority of the population, you LOVE yourself some tacos!!
Last year Americans ate over 4.5 billion tacos! That’s 490,000 miles of tacos, which could take you to the moon and back (or, if you prefer, at 775-million pounds, they could equal the weight of two Empire State Buildings!).
Available in a wide variety of ingredients, flavors, and textures, the delicious filled tortillas have been loved by many for decades and have grown in popularity throughout time! We’re here to talk about 'National Taco Day’, one of those not-so-official “holidays” that we can actually get behind!
Who doesn’t love tacos, any day of the year, and having a whole day, dedicated to them?… We approve! :)
((There is even a website, dedicated to National Taco Day!)): https://www....altacoday.com
— So, how will YOU celebrate?! —
* Start the day off with tacos!
Whip up some delicious Waffle Tacos for breakfast!

We hope you’ll join us for a very special event on October 4th! We’re painting a BRAND NEW piece titled, ’Thank God It’s Frida!”

A representative from 'Frida Kahlo Tequila' will be partnering with us for a tequila tasting. We will also have a specialty "Margafrida" cocktail. ((Price includes tequila tasting and appetizers))
That’s right… We’ll be hosting a tequila tasting to pair perfectly with your other events from 'National Taco Day’! Whether you’re enjoying some tacos before or after the class, you’ll be put into the mood of the holiday, instantly, when you come in for this class!

We will ALSO be offering a black light painting on October 4th titled, ‘Psychedelic Starry Night’! If you’re interested in attending a class on ’National Taco Day', but the Kahlo painting sells out (or you want to create a Van Gogh painting instead), join us for the black light event!
This vibrant take on Van Gogh’s Starry Night is just as fun to paint in the daylight as it is under blacklight. The glowing color palette is easy to customize, and the simple design is very beginner-friendly. Join us and paint your own technicolor masterpiece!
