TACO CABANA® WELCOMES HOME ICONIC TANGO FROGS TO LOWER GREENVILLE
(DALLAS) – Taco Cabana will bring home three of the original six Tango Frogs, created by Texas artist Bob “Daddy-O” Wade, to their original location at 1827 Greenville Ave., where they will be placed atop the newly renovated Taco Cabana restaurant. The Tango Frogs were originally affixed atop the Tango Nightclub at the same address in the early 1980s before being relocated to Carl’s Corner in 1985. Taco Cabana decided to bring the Tango Frogs home as part of the recent revitalization of Lower Greenville.
To celebrate the Tango Frogs’ homecoming, Taco Cabana will host a two-day celebration at its Lower Greenville location.
Thursday, June 26, 4–9 p.m.: 80s-themed “Throwback Thursday” patio party with the Tango Frogs displayed for photo opportunities, a DJ, 85-cent bean and cheese taco special and the daily happy hour special – margarita or domestic beer and an order of bean and cheese nachos for $3 (only available from 4–7 p.m.). Party is open to the public.
Friday, June 27, 9 a.m.: Official unveiling of the Tango Frogs on top of the restaurant.
“We’ve been working to bring the Tango Frogs home to their original Lower Greenville Avenue address for quite some time, so this will be a real celebration,” said Taco Cabana Chief Operating Officer Todd Coerver. “The Tango Frogs are finally back where they belong and are the perfect addition to our newly renovated restaurant and to this revitalized neighborhood.”
The Tango Frogs will be a permanent installation on top of the Taco Cabana restaurant on Lower Greenville.
“I’m proud to collaborate with a forward-thinking company like Taco Cabana that’s helping bring the arts back to the Lower Greenville community and fun to its guests,” said Wade. “I look forward to the events later this month where the Tango Frogs officially return home to Greenville Avenue.”
