INVICTO Free Tacos on Thursday
Mexican food lovers rejoice – tomorrow INVICTO will be giving out free tacos from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., or until the tacos are gone. Those interested can drive up on the north side of the INVICTO parking lot off Freedom Drive to get their tacos, beans and rice from INVICTO’s “Curbside Taqueria.” They’ll hand out one to four meals per car, depending on family size. The event is to thank those who’ve supported them during the stay-at-home order, and to help raise funds for first responders, by accepting donations from those pulling up to get their taco fix.
