Here’s the bare bones…

Susan Coss, Max Garrone and their team from Mezcalistas put on a great event Sunday in San Diego. Held at an expansive site called Bread & Salt the entire experience had a nice vibe. While sparse on the seating, the mostly hipster crowd didn’t seem to mind, choosing instead to keep moving and keep sampling a wonderful mix of spirits, composed mostly of mezcal, a little tequila, a few wines and a sampling of other goodies.

The DJ keep the music going, but not overdoing it as the sell out crowd of 350 people drank til their hearts, or their interior systems were content.

At $75.00, the price might seem stiff, but hey, if you love mezcal and tequila, where else can you sample so many different brands and talk directly to the distributors or in some cases, the owners of the brands? Counting the food offerings, there were 40 vendors total, all at your beck and call.

Bottom line, it was a great event, loaded with options, at a wonderful venue. A total success. No better way to spend a perfect Sunday afternoon in one of the best cities in America.

Now onto some of the pics and if you’re in some of the upcoming cities, get your tickets early as the event usually sells out!
