May 4, 2010

It’s not too hard to find a Cinco de Mayo party in San Francisco (just swing a tequila bottle), but here are a few to have on your radar:

Mijita at AT&T Park will be celebrating its inaugural ~CINCO DE MAYO~ with $5 margaritas and $1 off Dos Equis beer from 5pm-7pm, free chips and salsa with purchase, and chef/owner Traci Des Jardins will be doing a stint as a guest bartender! KNBR Radio will also be broadcasting live from 12pm-3pm at Public House ($2 off Dos Equis during broadcast).

Destino is celebrating its ten-year anniversary on Cinco de Mayo with $5 tequila sours and passionfruit margaritas all night long, plus tapas specials for $5 as well (at both Destino and Pisco next door). FYI, for the month of May, Destino will have all tapas priced at $10 or less, like the churraso-grilled Estancia sirloin with chimichurri (of course, the cheaper ones will still be the same price).

And of course the cats at Cantina always throw quite the fiesta. Have fun out there.

~UNCORKED EVENTS~ will be celebrating their fourth anniversary in style, pouring a vast array of their favorite wines from their first four years in one evening. Virtually every wine will be 90 points-plus rated, with many small production and hard-to-find gems, plus ultra-boutique wineries, cult classics, top importers, and luxury distributors all pouring. Participating wineries include: Pride Mountain, Fisher Vineyards, Gosset, Testarossa, Château de Beaucastel, Louis Latour, Penner Ash, Domaine Serene, Movia, Ata Rangi, Warwick Estate, Moët & Chandon, Cloudy Bay, Leeuwin Estate, Casa Marin, Fort Ross, Château Musar, Hamilton Russell, Vincent Girardin, and many more. You’ll have the opportunity to taste over 125 wines from every corner of the globe, plus there will be Belgian and German beer stations.

You’ll also be able to nosh on a gourmet cheese spread and hearty hors d’oeuvres from A.G. Ferrari, with beats provided by DJ Sol. In the past, the event has always sold out, but door tickets, if available, will be $60.
