Get a Tattoo, Get Free Tacos for Life at El Chingon

Taco fans, this one’s for you: El Chingon is giving away free tacos for life for anyone willing to get a tattoo of the restaurant’s logo inked in a “visible location” on their body. Folks who get the ink receive the tattoo free of charge in exchange for a maximum of five tacos a day, 10 tacos a week, for life. Artists from local shop Dark Age Tattoo will be inking those who dare at the restaurant from noon to 4 p.m. Don’t want to commit? No problem. Those who don’t want to get a permanent tattoo can get one of five flash tattoos for $100 each. But only those who get the real ink get the free tacos. 2800 Bledsoe St., Ste. 100., Fort Worth.

June 25

Burger Fight

In the first-ever Burger Fight (yep, from the folks behind Meat Fight!), eight burger joints will come together June 25 to compete for the best burger title. You can read more about it in our post here. D Magazine is a sponsor, and our dining critic Brian Reinhart will be part of the dunking booth, by the way. Try the sliders, vote for your favorite, and then dunk Brian. Sounds like a plan. All ticket proceeds benefit people living with MS. Tickets start at $60. Community Beer Company, 3110 Commonwealth Dr.
