Mezcal bar and tasting room Tahona in Old Town will host a one-night-only dinner event with Mexico’s artisanal Mezcal Vago on Thursday, April 18 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Celebrating the culturally vibrant region of Oaxaca, where Mezcal Vago seeks out and sources from talented small batch mezcaleros, this four course meal designed by Tahona’s Executive Chef Adrian Villareal will bring together foodies and mezcal enthusiasts for an intimate evening held in Tahona’s communal tasting room.
Each of this dinner’s Oaxaca inspired courses will be paired with a different expression from around Oaxaca, with Mezcal Vago’s founder and respected expert Judah Kuper attending and guiding guests through each tasting. Intended to be both an indulgent dinner and an educative experience, guests will gain a greater understanding of the terroir and processes that shape mezcal’s distinct flavors as they dine.
During this evening, Tahona will also co-host a special happy hour with Mezcal Vago between 5 and 7 p.m. featuring a unique cocktail made with Vago Espadin for $7. All Tahona guests 21+ years of age are invited to enjoy happy hour.
