Sure, you can run around on Cinco de Mayo with a big sombrero and do God knows how many shots of tequila and Tecate chugging. Or, you can attend HECHO EN SAN FRANCISCO (“Made in San Francisco”), a benefit for La Cocina and CUESA, and have some top-notch food and drinks like the savvy gourmand you are. Tacolicious is organizing this event that will feature a spread of antojitos from 10 of San Francisco’s best Mexican restaurants and food vendors (including three from La Cocina), handcrafted cocktails from four tequila makers (Herradura, El Jimador, Don Julio, and Tres Agaves), and a choice of two Mexican beers (Victoria and Corona Familiar) and two wines (Urbanite Cellars and Caliberico). You’ll be able to taste delicious comida from: La Palma Mexicatessen, La Torta Gorda, Tropisueño, Nopalito, Tacolicious, Mijita, Rancho Gordo, Alicia Tamales Los Mayas, Chaac Mool, and Sweets Collection.
Thursday May 5th, 5:30pm-8:30pm. $50. Buy tickets here. All proceeds will go to benefit CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture) and La Cocina, the Mission District-based incubator kitchen. The event will be at the Ferry Building North Arcade.
