On Friday, November 30, the Taste of Mexico returns to Downtown's Saint Vibiana cathedral to highlight the country's regional cuisine through the cooking of Casita Mexicana, Casa Azul, Guelaguetza, Frida, and La Monarca bakery. This year, the event has even more collaborators on the comida. Joining the growing stable of restaurants and entertainers this year will be John Sedlar's Playa, Yuca's, Guisado's, Coni'Seafood, Jimmy Shaw's Loteria, Red O, La Sandia, Mexikosher, Tortas Bravas, La Tiendita, and Candela Taco Bar. The roster is still getting bigger, organizers tell us, making $50 sort of a steal if you want to plump up on sixteen eating options. Beer, tequila, and mezcal vendors will offer free sips of their spirits to VIPs paying $70 a pop, and mariachis and regional dancers will help spice things up, with proceeds going to support the Downtown Artwalk. Tickets available online.
