The Offspring celebrates record release at Chronic Tacos

June 25, 2012 |  5:47 pm

The skate punk band the Offspring is releasing its ninth record, "Days Go By," at a party at Chronic Tacos in Huntington Beach on June 26 from 5 to 7 p.m.

It's an event sure to be filled with a certain kind of bro: backward baseball caps, chain wallets, lots of tattoos and questionable facial hair. Ladies in bikini tops, high heels and small skirts will also be in abundance.

Also in attendance? Competitive eating champion Takeru Kobayashi, because nothing says, "I like to party with the Offspring" like watching a 128-pound Japanese man wolf down dozens of tacos in minutes. (Kobayashi currently holds a number of world records, including one for eating 14 Twinkies in 1 minute and one for consuming 337 chicken wings at Wing Bowl XX.)

The Offspring will be on hand to sign autographs on its new record, hand out custom Offspring T-shirts and take in a performance by a mariachi band.

Chronic Tacos, 328 11th St., Huntington Beach. (714) 960-0339; www.eatchronictacos.com. www.offspring.com.
