Holy cow was that crazy and insane, and yes even a little fun – two days of agave (oh and Mexican rum!) and 1200 people, it was a not for the faint of heart.Denver, you are one beautiful town with hands down the nicest Lyft drivers anywhere, and a taco scene that gives LA a run for the money.

Let’s set the scene: Denver Taco Festival, a two day taco, music, lucha libre, art and Chihuahua racing extravaganza serving more than 10,000 people a day. The Mexico in a Bottle tent was surrounded by an incredible offering of tacos and elotes, beer, and lots and lots of people waiting to get in and get their agave on. We re-programmed what had been the Tequila Expo in past years and created a program featuring craft tequila AND mezcal. And against all odds, and thanks to Brian Rossi of Adelitas and Palenque, we had a great cocktail demo area that showcased the diverse flavors of agave when it comes to crafting the perfect drink. We even had a couple of Mexican rums and wine from Baja, truly capturing the idea of Mexico in a Bottle.

A huge thank you to the organizers Another Brother Productions and Connected Soul who put together a deliciously fun event and weekend and to Brian Rossi, without whom this would have never happened. For a deep dive into thoughts about our first ever Mexico in a Bottle event within an event, we’ve got this post up here.
