Dollar Street Taco and Trivia Tuesday at Whole Foods


Are you a trivia buff? I’m not but I enjoyed participating last Tuesday night at the Bar Rincon at the Oxnard Whole Foods. We grabbed 6 dollar tacos  after sampling free cheese and settled into the converted Airstream and sampled some beers. Rules of play: teams can have up to 6 members. No cell phones, obviously, and the winning team gets a $50 Whole Foods gift card.


Taco choices were stewed beef, pork, and chicken. I enjoyed the pork and chicken best. They were pretty awesome! choice of salsa, cilantro, and diced onions for toppings.

I will definitely go again. But will definitely team up with another couple next time.
