For that, you can thank Lola mixologist Jimmy Zanon, whos hosting an educational powwow, beginning at 6 p.m., for uninitiated gringos (and anyone else) who yearn to learn more about Mexicos prized poison. We want to share our passion for the wonderful spirit that is tequila, as well as our passion for crafting well-made cocktails, so that customers have the knowledge to make really great craft cocktails with tequila at home, says Zanon. The informal hour-long gathering, which will focus on the history and production of tequila, is limited to twenty thirsty mouths and includes a flight of one-ounce tasting pours of Corzo tequila, salsa, chips and guacamole and a complimentary gift bag (free stuff!), courtesy of Corzo. The cost is $25 per person, and reservations are required. Lola is at 1575 Boulder Street; call 720-570-8686 to get a sip of the action.
