Tortilla-ing It Up!

By Shamia Holloway September 30, 2013

Have you been longing to get away to the Lone Star State but don’t have the time or funds?   Well, Washington metro area, you are in luck!  Tortilla Coast Capitol Hill, a local Tex-Mex favorite and second home to politicos and residents of the Hill, is bringing the Lone Star State here with a three-week celebration in honor of the Texas State Fair.
Beginning Friday, September 27, Tortilla Coast will offer an exclusive menu inspired by the fair, including Onion Ring Towers stacked high, Frito Pie and comfort food favorites like Chicken Fried Steak.  And to make it even better, one dollar from every Texas State Fair entrée purchased will be donated to the Capital Area Food Bank!
Tortilla Coast’s three-week Texas State Fair celebration will also feature a Texas Trivia Night, where teams will put their Texas knowledge to the test and battle it out; Karaoke Night, where guests can expect to listen and sing along to the most memorable country classics; Don’t Mess with Texas Night, where guests are encouraged to don their best boots, cowboy hats, belt buckles and big hair; and a Capitol Hill Garden Show, in which participants will be judged on categories such as Largest Pumpkin, Ugliest Pumpkin and Best Dressed Squash (produce from the show will be donated to the food bank).    The celebration will conclude on Sunday, October 20.
So saddle up and head over to Tortilla Coast for the limited edition Texas-inspired fare and a host of games and activities.  Giving back never tasted so good.TSF Menu Final
