Taco & Tequila Fiesta
Cinco De Mayo at SoCal
We celebrated Cinco de Mayo with our second annual Taco & Tequila Fiesta in May 2019. Thanks to everyone who joined us!
The Fiesta takeover saw SoCal transformed into a Mexican-themed wonderland bursting with colour, vibrant florals and sombreros galore. Kicking-off the celebrations was a weekend-long soiree with live music, cocktail specials and free flower crowns up for grabs when you got yourself an Olmeca ALTOS tequila cocktail.
The week following brought a line-up of interactive events including a hilarious night of comedy, an all-you-can-eat taco extravaganza, a tequila masterclass, the hottest chilli eating contest on the North shore, and a paired taco and tequila degustation dinner.
