Make your Cinco de Mayo celebration count by joining Tacolicious at their second annual ~HECHO EN SAN FRANCISCO~ party. From 6pm-9pm in the CUESA Kitchen at the Ferry Building, gulp and guzzle top-shelf tequila, Tacolicious tacos, antojitos from 10 SF Mexican restaurants and purveyors, and more, with all proceeds going to CUESA and La Cocina.
Your tasty Mexican food choices will include La Palma Mexicatessen’s made-to-order tortillas filled with braised meats or market vegetables from Tacolicious, La Torta Gorda’s Puebla-style cooking, artisan jello-shots (hic) from Sweets Collection, Don Bugito’s edible insects, Nopalito’s fresh ceviche, plus offerings from FOOD, Chaac Mool, Hella Vegan Eats, El Buen Comer, Alicia’s Tamales Los Mayas, and Rancho Gordo.
Drink choices include handcrafted cocktails using Don Julio, Cuervo Tradicional, and Mi Casa tequila, including Mi Casa’s Tequila Daisy with homemade grenadine; two beers, Victoria and Corona Familiar; and seasonal agua fresca from El Buen Comer. Tickets are $55, available online. CUESA Kitchen, 1 Ferry Plz. at Embarcadero and Market.
And not very Cinco de Mayo-related, but it is Saturday May 5th: take the Fermented Favorites tour with the good folks of ~DISCOVERY STREET TOURS~ from 1:30pm-4pm, and you’ll spend the afternoon exploring wine and cheese. Perfect if you’re more of a wino than a tequil-ino. Although, given the timing of these events, you can be both.
