Free Tequila, and Not a Moment Too Soon
Single-digit wind chills are good for nothing but justifying knocking off work early to go to Oyamel's Tequila & Mezcal Festival tonight. Though we probably had you at "free tequila," there's more details, after the jump!
Oyamel, the fancier-than-usual Mexican restaurant in Penn Quarter, is offering the tequila tasting to kick off its Tequila & Mezcal Festival. For two weeks, the restaurant will honor both liquors with specialized dishes and cocktails. This is not the mass-produced hangover syrup of your youth, either. Tonight's tasting includes 100% blue agave tequila, and guidance from a world-renowned tequila production expert.
Another free tasting from 5PM to 7PM on Thursday features mezcal, tequila's lesser known cousin. The Festival also features a six-course dinner and tasting, for those that like "food" with their alcohol, but is not free AND it is now sold out -- suckers!
