Aurora, Illinois Is Taking Taco Tuesday To The Next Level

Over the last several years, Taco Tuesday has become a thing in Illinois. Originally, it was just a bar promotion to get customers to come in during the early part of the week. Now, you can find it everywhere. Most people have their favorite spot to hit. For me personally here in Rockford, it's C.J.'s downtown.

On May 16th, I'm going to have to road trip to Aurora for Taco Tuesday. They are hosting a Taco Crawl. Are you kidding me? Multiple places to check out in one day. I'm in. Plus, it benefits a local food pantry. Now, that's taking your Taco Tuesday to the next level. For more info, HERE.
