Get serious about mezcal on Sunday September 14th at the Mezcal: Mexico in a Bottle at Public Works from 3pm-7pm. The event includes tastings of the spirit, from both small and large producers, along with cocktails and bites from local restaurants like La Urbana, Loló, and Sabrosa. Oh yeah, and Don Bugito will be in the house!
There will be opportunities to talk with mezcal experts and producers, along with guided tastings and some new arrivals from Mexico. Some of the speakers include Erick Rodriguez of Almamezcalera (he’s known at the Indiana Jones of mezcal, apparently), Graciela Angeles Carreño of Real Minero, and Cecilia Murrieta of La Niña del Mezcal. It’s all being put on by Mezcalistas and Agave Tip. Tickets are $60 per person for general admission and $100 for VIP, which gets you in early and gives you access to a special VIP area with cocktails and food. Public Works, 161 Erie St. at Mission.
