When Riverside Taco comes back to the Alexandria waterfront this spring, it could be expanded into a new music venue.
The eatery currently consists of the Airstream trailer that dispenses tacos, soft drinks, and beer — seasonally — as well as a 90-seat picnic table area. A new special use permit (SUP) requested for Riverside Taco would allow the market to host live acoustic entertainment.
“The outdoor market will continue current operations, but would feature live acoustic musicians and/or amplified background music for market patrons and passerby during the hours of operations,” the permit said. “This change is consistent with other approvals along the Waterfront, and aligns with the goals of the Waterfront Small Area Plan which calls for a variety of creative, dynamic, and inclusive uses at the Waterfront to create ‘better public spaces.'”
The permit says the added music would enhance and activate the waterfront, citing proximity to the Torpedo Factory Arts Center and the bevy of artists working on the waterfront as compatible local arts uses.
The permit is scheduled to go to the City Council for review on March 3.
