Welcome to the Mezcalistas 2020 Gift Guide. Yes, yes, we know that this is a consumerist free-for-all, that the true meaning of the holidays has been hopelessly perverted, and that one of us (Max) has opted out of the whole
It's been more than a week since the awesome Lucha de la Cocina and now that we're finally back on top of the world, or recovered, we'll share some photos and a quick recap.

It would be fair to say that despite the fact that we do an awful lot of events, we don’t consider ourselves event planners. This is why we are such believers in collaboration. We always try to work with the best of the best who bring their game to whatever event we have going. This is especially true of the upcoming La Lucha de La Cocina on August 13th at Pier 70 in San Francisco, a collaborative fundraiser for La Cocina, the non profit culinary incubator in San Francisco’s Mission District that helps <primarily immigrant> women start formal food businesses. In addition to the Lucha Libre and Taquiza (taco extravaganza) which we previously wrote about, there will also be three bars hosted by some of San Francisco’s most innovative bars and restaurants - ABV, Old Bus Tavern, and Novela.
What happens when you combine Lucha Libre, Tacos and Mezcal? We now have the answer - La Lucha de la Cocina! Mezcalistas is beyond excited to be working with La Cocina, one of the most amazing non profit organizations here in the Bay Area, and Pro Wrestling Revolution. This fundraising event will take place August 13th at Pier 70 in San Francisco.
