Sunday: Tequila and Tamales, More or Less by the Bay

Tamales by the Bay
A Taste of Tamales by the Bay

Where: San Francisco Design Center, 101 Henry Adams (at Alameda)

When: Sun., April 17, noon-4:30 p.m.

Cost: $45 ($50 after today)

The rundown:
This Sunday is a big day for single-food celebrations, as the Chocolate Salon and A Taste of Tamales by the Bay test your sweet and savory allegiances. If you can't make up your mind, maybe we can help. While the chocolate event is a nationwide touring affair, the tamale one features all local vendors. The Chocolate Salon offers the delicate refinement of wine pairings, but you can get rip-roaring on tequila at Tamales by the Bay. Oh, and the tamale event costs twice as much, but its proceeds support the Benchmark Institute's social justice programs. Come Sunday, where you gonna be?

I love Tamales by the Bay! I went last year and had a great time. I felt like I had died and gone to tamale heaven. I highly recommend that you go to this event.


I'll be at Taste of Tequila and Tamales! I've attended for the last few years, and it gets better every year! The tamales and other food were really tasty last year, and, although I didn't actually try the tequila, those who did definitely weren't complaining. They also had beer, margaritas, and lots of non-alcoholic drinks for those who prefer to avoid the straight tequila and/or might need to drive themselves home.


Oh, and to the suggestion that folks can/should get "rip-roaring" on tequila at the event: the idea is that it's a tequila tasting, not pounding shots like it's your 21st birthday.The organizers bring in high-quality tequilas so that attendees can enjoy the flavor and compare them to each other. Sure there were a few people who hit the tequila tasting a little too enthusiastically last year, but most were there simply to enjoy a sampling of the great food and drinks that the Bay Area has to offer.
