Performers and liquor enthusiasts treat festival-goers to a day of samples and entertainment at the Tequila, Art, Mezcal & Music street expo on Saturday, August 25. Hosted by Alebrijes Mexican Bistro and Agave52, the event pairs adults 21 and older with experts such as M. Cigars owner Louis Mejia, who'll hand roll cigars infused with Anejo tequila and Hardy cognac. Throughout the evening, Aztec dancers will delight attendants with traditional moves amid live Latin music, and the chefs from Alebrijes will roast a pig on a spit. All attendants receive a commemorative tasting glass, and VIP ticket holders enjoy free food, water, and classes, such as Agave52's Frank Orosco on how to taste the traditional Mexican spirit without feeling the burn from its floating cactus needles.

Agave52 and Alebrijes Mexican Bistro

The inspiration behind Alebrijes Mexican Bistro is the stuff of nightmares—Pedro Linares’s nightmares, to be specific. At the age of 30, the Mexican artist fell deathly ill. As he lay in bed, unconscious, he dreamt of a strange world filled with brightly colored monsters—a donkey with butterfly wings and a rooster with the head of an eagle among others—all shouting “alebrijes, alebrijes, alebrijes!” When he awoke, he wanted to show his family and friends all that he had seen, so he replicated his first alebrije from brightly painted papier-mâché. To this day, his family still crafts these strange creatures to serve as unusual home accents.

Pedro’s monsters inspired Alebrijes Mexican Bistro's name, as well as its décor, which showcases brightly colored paintings of his nightmarish beasts. In 2012, the bistro also won the Lodi News Reader’s Choice award for Best Mexican Restaurant, thanks to its gourmet burritos and regionally inspired dishes such as Oaxaca mole, Guanajuato bacon-wrapped prawns, and guacamole prepared in the style of Mexico City.

The restaurant also infuses its own tequilas, making it a natural complement to Agave52—a tequila-focused event group that seeks to nurture new relationships between long-time tequila enthusiasts and newcomers by hosting events throughout California. Industry professionals and libation experts host speaking sessions, short classes, and informal tastings that introduce newbies to a variety of premium tequilas made from the finest solid-gold agave plants.
