While the sports world is enraptured with the Roman numeral, XLIX, taco lovers in Philadelphia are more excited about XI. Tonight, Sancho Pistola’s is hosting its 11th Fishtown Taco Exchange, and this evening’s dance partner is SpOt Burger. SpOt’s Josh Kim is known for his burgers and Best of Philly winning cheesesteaks, but tonight he will be making beef tenderloin tempura tacos.
The fun kicks off at 7:30 p.m. at Sancho’s and two tacos will be $14.
Check out “Sancho Spielbergo’s” video for more details.

Tacos at La Calaca Feliz
On the Cooking Channel’s Taco Trip, four local taco hot spots will be featured this evening. La Calaca Feliz, Sancho Pistola’s, Union Taco and Tuk Tuk Real will all be making their TV debuts.
Host Aaron Sanchez hits the taco spots trying out everything from a scrapple taco to one of Tuk Tuk Real’s Thai fusion creations. The show debuts at 9:30 p.m. and Sancho’s, Union Taco and Tuk Tuk Real are all hosting viewing parties. Union Taco and Tuk Tuk are both offering $2 tacos. Union Taco is even offering delivery from their Manayunk location if you buy five or more tacos.
Tuk Tuk is also giving away a $25 gift card to the customer who posts the most appetizing photo of them watching Taco Trip and eating the restaurant’s tacos. All posts, tweets, or Instagram pics must be accompanied by #TukTukTacoTrip.

If you’re out late in Fishtown tonight, we have the perfect thing for you: The Fishtown Taco Exchange.
Starting at 10pm, chef Tim Spinner from all the various Felizes around town (La Calaca, Taqueria, et cetera) will be in the kitchen at Sancho Pistola’s alongside chef Adan Trinidad, knocking out collaborative duck tacos three ways.
So if tacos, cold beers and shots of mezcal sound like a perfect way to keep warm on a cold night in Fishtown, now you know where to go.
