Taco Wars!


What better way to kick off the 2018 Cocktails & Culture Festival than with Tequila, Mezcal and Street Tacos at TACO WARS on Friday, June 1 at the Drury Plaza Hotel?

Guests are treated to fun, educational tequila seminars by Master Mixologist Bobby “G” Gleason of El Tesoro Tequila and North America Brand Ambassador / Educator Manny Hinojosa of Tequila Cazadores during the event as well as tequila and cocktail tastings and creative street tacos from local NM restaurants. 

Last year, Taco Wars attendees voted Chef Edgar Beas from Inn of the Anasazi as TOP TACO! Who will win this tasty taco competition in 2018…? YOU decide!

The restaurant with the winning taco gets $250 donated to the  Santa Fe Humane Society and Animal Shelter on their behalf.

Inn of the Anasazi (TOP TACO 2017)
