La Carnita DOS

DOS brings tacos and street art back to the Brick Works

Fans of tacos, street art and good music will want to mark their calendars for July 19th. That's when DOS, La Carnita's self-billed party of the summer returns to the Evergreen Brick Works for its second annual edition.

Building on last summer's sold-out festival, UNO, the team behind DOS spearheaded by La Carnita chef Andrew Richmond tells us they're expecting a sell-out again with this new and improved version that will feature beats by DJ Platurn and Grandtheft and skull inspired art by Sam Flores, Joseph Martinez and Mike Giant.

That's just scratching the surface on the actual talent expected to be in attendance. For a full list of artists (double the number that were at last year's event), check out the DOS web site.

Food-wise, Chef Richmond and his crew from La Carnita might need to up their game. That's because they've brought in famed-Chicago taco kings Big Star to fill up attendees that are expected to number in the thousands.

Richmond told us to expect grilled corn, crispy tamales, whole roasted animal items, tostadas, churros, paletas, a tequila bar, bourbon booth, cocktails, beer and more.

They're also hoping to address past complaints about long line-ups at food events at the Brick Works by vastly expanding the number of food and bar stations and collaborating with the TUM team on event logistics.

Tickets for DOS are now on sale. Get'em before they sell out.
