Saddle up! The Wild Bunch annual benefit for The Giving Kitchen is back this Sun., June 26! Tacos, beer, cocktails, and music — say no more, right? Wait till you read the lineup. 

The Wild Bunch is the brainchild of Armando Celentano, Steven Grubbs, and Jesse Smith. Last year’s event raised over $10,000 and was a heck of a party. Grubbs described the benefit to their beloved Giving Kitchen simply:
“It’s basically just a great excuse for us to have our favorite chefs cook us tacos and our favorite barkeeps make us drinks. Oh, and also to have a decent crowd to force into listening to our music.” Hosted by Argosy in East Atlanta, tickets to the event cost $25 apiece. The price includes fIve taco/cocktail tickets, and additional tickets are 5 bucks a pop. Now more on that lineup we were talking about:
