Creative Loafing hosted our first Eat My Charlotte Foodie Tours on Saturday, Nov. 7. The tour featured authentic tacos from restaurants down South Boulevard, along with Mexican beers and churros. Did you happen to see a red double-decker bus driving around town? That was us!
If you missed out on this tour, we'll have another Foodie Tour hitting the streets in January. Stay tuned for info about which food we will feature next...

Check out this sweet addition to the Eat My Charlotte Taco Tour:
On Saturday we'll be eating four tacos, Mexican beers, chips and salsa, and churros, so be sure to wear your stretchy pants ... or even better, overalls (no waistband)!
For those of you who are attending our Saturday "Eat My Charlotte Foodie Tour: Tacos," get excited.
Today I went out with our publisher to hand pick your beer for the double-decker bus ride. We stopped at Supermercado Romero's on South Boulevard and hauled out these authentic goodies for you:
And while we were there, we couldn't resist purchasing some of the warm baked goods from the panederia y pasteria!
The yummy scent of sweet breads and cookies envelope the store calling customers over to the display of goodies spanning an entire wall. The store bakes all their breads and pastries in-house throughout the day so they are amazingly fresh.
* SOLD OUT! We've reached the maximum number of guests. Please join us next time!
If you consider yourself an adventurous eater and love to chomp your way through Charlotte, come join us on Creative Loafings first Eat My Charlotte Foodie Tour which is sponsored by our popular food blog Eat My Charlotte on Saturday, Nov. 7.
Our Foodie Tours will bus you around town to taste a specific cuisine or dish at different locally owned restaurants. Each time, well provide transportation, drinks, food and fun.
This debut tour will focus on tacos. Well take you to a variety of eateries on South Boulevard where you can sample tacos to your hearts content. In all, well stop at four different locations (including, yes, a taco truck!) that feature authentic tastes from south of the border.
The tour will include transportation on a charter bus from Uptown, beers, tacos and dessert.
