It’s Mezcal Week!

DSC04864Yea… I should have posted this earlier in the week. Regardless, there’s lots to check out in the next few days if you’re into mezcal.  Over 20 restaurants are offering flights, cocktail specials, and mezcal-paired dinners. I went to Doña Thomas the other night, which is offering a delicious $30 prix fixe Oaxacan menu, $45 with mezcal pairings.  For up to date info on cocktails and specials happening around the Bay, follow the Mezcalistas on twitter.

On Sunday, there’s a culminating tasting event at PublicWorksSF where people will have a chance savor more than 80 kinds of mezcal and bites and cocktail sips from local restaurants including 4505 Meats Loló, Colibri, Salsipuedes, Beretta, Old Bus Tavern, ABV and a couple of surprises. I’m helping to organize that one, so come hang.

Proceeds from the week benefit the Mexican Museum.

Here’s the breakdown of larger events . And here’s where to get tickets for Sunday. mezcalweek
