Grilled Squash Vegetarian Tacos is part of the way La Victoria Brand is celebrating it’s 100 year anniversary and they are inviting you to come celebrate with them on the west coast. Los Angeles’s event is on June 1. There will be two more locations coming soon.

Each dinner will showcase and celebrate the flavors of a different local chef, recipe (specific to west coast), music, and artwork.
