"Instead of doing a mezcal-tequila tasting like we normally do, we came up with some killer cocktails to pair with each course," says Sean Yontz, executive chef of Tambien (250 Steele Street), the gathering quarters for tomorrow night's multi-course holiday mezcal dinner. The fact that Yontz is serving mole de caderas -- roasted goat -- is reason enough to cancel whatever plans you already have in place. Seriously, when Yontz does mole - mole with goat, for chrissakes -- you know the culinary deities are all in place.
The festivities begin at 7 p.m. and dinner/drinks are $45 per person, excluding tax and gratuity. To make reservations, call 303-333-1763.
