It’s not quite hot dogs in Coney Island, but tacos in Park Slope has a certain authentic grit to it, don’t you think? Besides, face-stuffing is face-stuffing, which is what we hope to see tonight at Barrio‘s first annual taco-eating contest. The guacamole will fly at 7 p.m. when contestants race to clean their surely-overflowing plates. The prize is a $100 gift certificate to the restaurant. You can still sign up, but call ahead at 718-965-4000. The entrance fee is $19, which seems steep, until you consider that you probably won’t want to eat again until Saturday morning. And it’s an even better deal than Dine in Brooklyn. Competitors, show up by 6:45.
Barrio, 210 Seventh Ave. at 3rd St., 718-965-4000
