At Taqueria El Picante, one of Denton’s longest running taquerias, you can pick up a vegan taco — and if you’re a lucky fan of punk rock music, you can leave with a bruise to brag about.

This weekend, Taqueria El Picante hosts “Taco Fest 2k13,” a two-day event that will sell food — vegan and not — music and maybe some skating. In return, the business owners will have some money to do some remodeling and to establish a fund for a community sound system.

The setting? One shopworn taqueria sporting fantastic paintings. The music? Loud, and probably aggressive.

On the menu: free horchata, a traditional Mexican sweet rice drink; fresh agua frescas, a traditional sweet, fruity drink; $1 tacos; vegan tamales by Masa De La Raza; raffle prizes; a photo booth; a pop-up clothing shop by Bird Lip; and games and activities.
