The Tequila Tasting Dinner takes place Saturday, February 28, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. At Macayo’s Mexican Kitchen, participants taste Casamigos tequila and enjoy a four-course meal. Upon arrival, they’re greeted by tables already laden with margaritas, salsa, and queso dip. They then embark on the dinner: a small tinga tostada salad, a rolled taco with black beans, shrimp Vera Cruz with cilantro rice, and flan. Proceeds benefit the Arizona Hemophilia Association.

The dinner kicks off the countdown till My Nana’s Best Tasting Salsa Challenge, which takes place Saturday, March 7, and Sunday, March 8. This Groupon is also valid for single-day admission to the Salsa Challenge.

My Nana's Best Tasting Salsa Challenge

Every year, more than 100 amateur and professional cooks prepare fresh salsas for My Nana's Best Tasting Salsa Challenge. Proceeds from the salsa competition and festival benefit the Arizona Hemophilia Association, which aims to enhance the quality of life for those affected by bleeding disorders and advocate for better medical care and insurance coverage. Now over 30 years old, the fest brings in more than 20,000 people annually. In addition to the salsa challenge, the Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix-Off asks local bartenders to face off for the title of Best Margarita and a $500 cash prize. Outside of competitions, margaritas and cold beers wash down unlimited chips and salsa, and the rhythms of live bands keep crowds chewing in unison. Parents can accompany their children at the fun zone, with multiple bounce houses, interactive games, and a rock-climbing wall.

Great event for a great cause. We had beautiful weather this year too!

I enjoy the salsa challenge every year. Yummy salsa for a cause! However, they ran out of trays by the time we got there so it was super hard to hold the chips, the salsa, and your drink...not to mention actually try the salsa. I would recommend bringing some kind of try with you!
