Tacos, Shark Week and community goodwill – does life get much better?
This past week, Discovery’s events team blanketed the Jersey Shore with Shark Week spirit, sharing tacos and Shark Week swag with beach communities.
Teaming up with The Taco Truck, Discovery started its journey on Atlantic City’s infamous boardwalk, where they treated fans to Shark Week trivia, “Shark Bite” tacos, and lots of Shark Week fun, including t-shirts, fin hats, stickers, tattoos and more. From Atlantic City, Discovery and their Taco Truck friends traveled to Long Branch, NJ, and then onto Union Beach – in just three days, the team gave out over 4,000 tacos!
On Monday and Tuesday, the team also stopped in towns hit hard by Superstorm Sandy – Little Ferry, Seabright and Highlands – to visit with Habitat for Humanity volunteers, providing a full lunch and some Shark Week fun.
Check out the Shark Week fun in the photos below, and we’ll catch you tonight on Shark Week!
