1st Annual TJ Mezcal Festival

 

DSCN2258Tequila Connection attended the 1st annual Mezcal festival in Tijuana last Saturday. The event was held 14-16 Nov, 2014 between 4th and 5th on Revolution in downtown Tijuana.  The event was not near as large as TJ’s annual Tequila Expo, but it did feature many of the same elements (traditional entertainment and food) along with several reps offerings samples of their Mezcals.  There were some quality mezcals, but also a lot of room for growth.  I look forward to seeing this event expand for years to come.  For photos of the event, visit Tequila Connection’s Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/thetequilaconnection     Cheers, Cary
