FOOD: Silver Queen

Thursday, April 6, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Silver Queen was derived from the stories of Chili Queens and the history of tacos, first served outside of silver mines. lighthearted conversation in the plazas of San Antonio, Texas. The Queens were known for being jolly and bright women who decorated their makeshift booths with bright ribbons and flowers. They offered food, lighthearted conversation, and a warm culture in the plazas of San Antonio, Texas. The name “taco” originally referenced the wrapping for the dynamite used in the silver mines. The miners started calling their lunches tacos, too, because they would wrap tortillas around leftovers and the shape resembled the dynamite sticks. The combination of the hospitable Queens and the location of the origin of the “taco” were merged to form Silver Queen.
