The weather's getting warmer, so you have no excuse for not heading to one of two events that should be the taco the town. Tonight restaurateur, chef and author Richard Sandoval will be touting his new cookbook at La Biblioteca, where guests will get a lot more than just a signature. And just up the hill, Duo will host a tasty fundraiser for a good cause.
Duo Restaurant will host a Taqueria Pacifica fundraising dinner tonight to benefit Nick Siracusa and his efforts to get his food truck, Taqueria Pacifica, running. For $35, you get two courses and two drinks from Black Shirt Brewery and Proof Wine & Spirits; for more information, head to duorestaurants.com.
Richard Sandoval will be at La Biblioteca from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight to celebrate the launch of his new cookbook, Richard Sandoval's New Latin Flavors. Inspired by dishes served at Sandoval's popular restaurants, the cookbook features more than 100 Latin recipes. The $75 ticket includes a meet and greet with chef Sandoval and a signed copy of his new cookbook, drinks, unlimited appetizers and a $25 gift card for any Sandoval restaurant; you can purchase tickets here.
