Do Not Underestimate Tijuana Cuisine: Teaser

My anxiety decided on an impropptu, one-night teaser trip out to Tijuana this last 4th of July with the main man Bill of Street Gourmet L.A. As many of you know,he knows his stuff, hence, cooperating with the Baja California Tourism Board and putting together this Media gastronomy trip out there in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for the positive feedback, as we've been working with Bill and COTUCO (the Tijuana Tourism Committee) to get the word out to foodies like you that enjoy the great things you can still find in Tijuana (safely, with excellent service, and a lot less expensive than in the US). If you wouldn't mind, please also post a few comments to the Tijuana Tourism Committee's new visitor website, www.120ThingsToDoInTijuana.org -- and visit the events page of TijuanaOnline.org (COTUCO's main website) for upcoming events (like the International Beer Festival, coming on July 17-19). Thanks again for enjoying Tijuana!
