This year, Downtown Phoenix plays host to the Annual Tamale Dinner, a charity fundraiser that has been held for 77 consecutive years.
The longest running fundraiser in the state promises a family-friendly night of music, entertainment and, as you might expect, a whole lot of tamales.
New this year, the Battle of the Tamales will pit more than a dozen Valley restaurants against each other for the title of “Best Tamale in the Valley,” as determined by 16 Valley-area mayors, including our very own Greg Stanton.
That’s right, you can watch your mayor sweat it out and taste-test enough tamales to induce a coma while you enjoy entertainment and a, hopefully, reasonable plate of tamales.
While tickets are only $15, you can win a pair right here, right now.
How will we decide who gets the tickets? We’ll add points for cutest, divide by funniest, add bonus points for sweetest and round up to 10 by factors of craziest. Wait, actually, you know what, math isn’t our thing. We’ll just pick our favorites. Winners will be contacted on April 3, so be sure to leave us your email address so we can reach you.
