Chef Nick Farina of Verdad fame is opening the doors of his West Girard taqueria tomorrow and to celebrate he's giving away free tacos tomorrow from noon to 2 p.m. Free tacos are pretty cool, right? Here's a little more intel about Union Taco (712 W. Girard Ave.).

The menu includes a selection of tacos, tortas, flatbread pizzas and churros with plenty of fresh fruit bases ready to be mixed into bring-yer-own-tequila cocktails.
