Tequila is derived from the heart of the agave plant, with an all-natural origin story similar to coffee's beginnings as a seed of the coffea plant or fruit punch's percolation within the belly of the Kool-Aid Man. Educate yourself on automatically occurring libations with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get admission for one to a tequila tasting hosted by Agave52 at Social Nightclub on May 14 starting at 6 p.m. (a $30 value).
Agave52’s spirit savants sound council on the intricacies of agave apéritifs while promoting fellowship and education. During the group's tequila tastings, guests join fellow tipplers for sips of more than 20 samples from six producers, with visiting tequilas including Don Pilar, Mañana, El Relingo, and more. Train tongues to judge drinks based on desired attributes, ranking color, aroma, spice, and ability to summon the ghosts of departed cacti. Tastings are a seat-free event, leaving guests free to roam Social Nightclub’s outdoor patio in between rounds of reposado. Salsa to the strains of Latin music on a festively lit dance floor, seek engaging conversation in a private veranda cabanas, or marvel at area artist Gustavo Renoso's collection of mashed-potato sculptures.
