The Salsa and Tequila Challenge Is This Weekend

Posted By on Mon, Aug 20, 2012 at 11:00 AM

The Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance's annual Salsa/Tequila Challenge takes place this Saturday, Aug. 25, at La Encantada.

The Salsa Culinary Challenge starts at 5 p.m., and nearly 20 restaurants have signed up. Tickets are $20, which includes massive samplings and performances by Ballet Folklorico La Paloma and Tesoro. Beer costs extra, but will be available.

The Tequila Challenge starts at 6 p.m. Tons of local restaurants—from newcomers like Elliott's on Congress to old dogs like Acacia—will try to wow the crowd with the delicious and unique tequila cocktails they conjure up. Tickets are $70, which include samples of the cocktails and paired small plates by the participating restaurants; tastings of various tequilas; live music; and the salsa-tasting event.

Sounds like a blast, and, hey, all the money made goes to SAACA and the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. Find more information and tickets over yonder.
