Check out our wrap up of our first Mexico in a Bottle outside of San Francisco. There is just one way to sum it up – beyond swell. We landed Friday night and hit the ground running, with our first stop at the Spotted Pig – a cold beer, a pigs ear salad and chicken liver toast. Fortification for the night ahead, which began and ended at Cosme. Because really, what more do you need than that? Edgar Morales was behind the bar and did us right with some pretty tasty cocktails. We then moved on to a couple of lovely copitas of mezcal (bartender surprise!) and toasted the night with James Beard Foundation Rising Star Chef Daniela Soto-Innes, who won my heart as she played DJ and couldn’t decide between Janet Jackson and Nick Cave.

Saturday we ran errands, and attempted to eat at Russ and Daughters, but a two hour line is just not gonna cut it and we managed to find some other super tasty bagels close by. After more walking, in the right shoes so win for me, we ended up at Tacombi for refreshing Micheladas and fish tacos, and then an evening of list management and final logistics for the big event.

I am not going to repeat the details here, so if you haven’t clicked through yet to the wrap up and pictures, do so now. The high of the success on Sunday was capped by the Warriors and Mexico wins, and Monday with ramen under the Williamsburg Bridge. New York, you awright.
