You didn't think I would forget about this wonderful holiday, did you? HAPPY TACO TUESDAY!

If there was any day to enjoy some tacos (and a margarita), it's TODAY. October 4th is also known as National Taco Day. Americans apparently LOVE their tacos, because we ate over 4.5 BILLION last year. In case you're wondering, that's 490,000 miles of tacos.

There are a few different franchises who have special deals today, but unfortunately, Taco Bell is NOT one of them. Taco John's is, though! They're celebrating Taco WEEK, and they have a way to get a free crispy beef taco using their app. Find out more details HERE.

There are lot of amazing Mexican restaurants here in Cedar Rapids, so I came up with a list of some of them for you, just in case you want to go get some tacos today:

If you're looking for some inspiration, here are some delicious photos of tacos:
