Cinco de Mayo. A day to down large quantities of guacamole, margaritas, chomp away on burritos, and to swallow tacos whole. Here’s a new way to celebrate: eat tacos until you give up and scream out ¡Ay Dios Mio! or until you are crowned El Champion. You’ll need to head to Picanté Fresh Mexican Grill on Bedford Street in Stamford to partake in this awesomeness. The contest will be going on in the parking lot behind their restaurant, so you can get some tacos and other goodies, come out back, and chow down while you watch people stuff their gullets. If you’ve never been, there is a wall of sauces and salsa there so you can make up any kind of combo that you’d like. Check out their foods and check out the details, too:
