Are you ready for the La Tamale Throwdown?

Nov 10, 2010 by Lisa Newton

The Eastside Bike Club asks…….are you ready for a Throwdown?

If you’re looking for Tamales, then don’t miss the “LA TAMALE THROWDOWN.”

All of the action takes place on Friday, November 12th, at 2:00pm, at Our Lady of Guadalupe Rose Hills Parking Lot, located at 4522 Browne Ave in LA.

Vying for top honors of the best tamale are Alberto Tamales, with their Oaxacan variety; Casa La Golondrina, whose specialty is Chile Rellenos Tamales; Vera’s Tamales, whose love of vegan and veggie tamales is well known and last but not least, Elena’s Tamales, who’ll be bringing their Strawberry/Pineapple Tamales.

Judging for the Best Tamale will take place on Friday at 6:00pm.

And if the tamales are not enough for you, the La Morenita Bakery will be baking fresh Pan Mexicano on site, and the Café in the Heights will be offering coffee samples.

There will be live music for the guests, and the Flying Pigeon, an LA bike shop, will be providing free bike valet service.

On Saturday, a tamale eating contest is planned and if you want to compete just give them a shout-out.

Lastly the admission price for all of this–a can of food that will be used to donate to needy families in the area.

To be able to eat the night away, perhaps skipping breakfast on Friday or Saturday isn’t a bad idea so that you’ll be ready to get your fill of tamales.
