Mezcal fifth anniversary party, day one

Mezcal kicked off its fifth anniversary celebration last night, a five-day affair full of five-buck deals through December 20: five-hour happy hours, five tacos for $5, five tamales for $5, tequila shots and coin-style margaritas for five bucks. (BTW, we'd pay five times that for a plate of the barbecued lamb ribs, a delicacy that Sean Yontz perfected at Tambien's Sunday barbecues this summer.)

Even without a fifth birthday to celebrate, Mezcal is looking plenty festive, decked out for the holidays with Mexican Christmas paraphernalia. And it will sound plenty festive this weekend, because Mariachi Vasquez, a family of the hippest mariachi musicians you'll ever encounter (the photo is how they looked in 2000, when we profiled this group living the Mexican-American dream), will be playing from 9-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday night.

Mezcal is located at 3230 East Colfax Avenue; for more information, go to www.mezcal-restaurant.com
