Tacocat @ Blue Sky

The Lodge at Blue Sky has announced the launch of Tacocat, a new, sustainable pop-up stand serving Mexican cuisine.

According to the folks at Blue Sky, “Located on the property’s Arena Lawn, lodge guests and Utah locals can enjoy elevated Mexican street food for dinner two to three times a week beginning late June through the end of August.  Sustainable practices are at the forefront of the experience, from zero waste to upcycled furniture.”

“My mom and I used to stop at Taco Tienda on Blackstone in Fresno, California when I was a little kid,” says Blue Sky owner, Mike Phillips. “I got hooked on authentic street tacos right away.  Tacocat is our Blue Sky casual homage to street tacos from Fresno to Tijuana.  There’s no better treat than a fish taco with a mezcal margarita on the lawn at the Arena.”

“The menu, curated by Yuta Executive Chef Jason Franey,  celebrates traditional Mexican dishes with freshly harvested produce from Gracie’s Farm, Blue Sky’s onsite regenerative farm. Prices range from $5 à la carte tacos to family style offerings at $50 per person. The menu is playful and the atmosphere is relaxed with an outstanding tequila and mezcal selection for adults. The menu features many dishes that are friendly for vegetarian, pescatarian and gluten-free diets, such as: The Fat Cat taco with pork verde,  the UFO taco with tempura tofu and a Salsa Bar with 14 different offerings.  The beverage menu includes signature cocktails The Vitamin ABC with carrot, orange & silver tequila and Gracie’s Green with celery, basil, kale & reposado, along with non-alcoholic Paletas (popsicles) and Jugo Fresco (juice) of the day.Situated by the Arena with views of the Wasatch Mountains, diners can easily spot the brightly-painted horse trailer bar serving cold libations. Not only will Tacocat offer outdoor communal seating, but the casual and fun environment will be amplified with outdoor games and occasional live music. Tacocat embraces sustainability by offering zero food waste, zero single-use items, and upcycled furniture and glassware. There will also be a retail stand selling Tacocat branded hats and t-shirts.”

Tacocat will be open most Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning June 27 through August 31st.  Dinner will be served 6pm-9pm. In the event of rain, Tacocat will be located inside the Arena.
