Got a craving for tacos, guacamole, and a pitcher (or two) of margaritas? Restaurants and bars remain shuttered, but several businesses are offering all the fixings for a Taco Tuesday feast, available for takeout or delivery to your door.
From Miami to Jupiter, here are five Miami shops that will prepare you a meal — in some cases right down to pitchers of margaritas or rosé sangria. Pro tip: These deals are available all week, so you can celebrate Taco Tuesday any day you choose.
