It's a battle of the coasts tonight at Adelitas. The restaurant is bringing East and West together for a tequila and mezcal cocktail battle, but regardless of who ends up on top, everyone in attendance will be a winner. From the East Coast, Adelitas welcomes Kayla Mata of Seamstress New York and Illegal Mezcal; from the West, Adam Stemmler of the East Bay Spice Co. and Fortaleza Tequila in San Francisco. Both guests will be mixing up craft cocktails and letting guests in on a few secrets of their trade. The event will run from 5 to 10 p.m. For reservations—which are recommended—and more information, contact Adelitas at 303-778-1294.
