Back Again! Cinco De Mayo Party @ El Sinaloense

El Sinaloense's Machaca -- the best beef dish ever!

With all of this anxiety over the current lime shortage, Mario – the owner of Sinaloense – and I decided we needed to have a party called: “How to Survive During the Mexican Lime Shortage” where we feature simple tequila drinks that don’t require lime juice. And we should probably invite a great tequila brand to join us that makes fantastic, clean, inexpensive tequila (just in case you did want some extra money for expensive limes). Olmeca Altos, a revamped brand that we’ll be featuring in the months ahead, jumped at the opportunity to participate. SO IT’S ON!!!! We’re having a lime-free party with Palomas and Bloody Marias, and TONS of fish, shrimp, and beef – all happening at the best Mexican place on the Peninsula. Only 40 spots available, so reserve your spot soon!

Olmeca Altos Tequila Dinner @ El Sinaloense, Tuesday April 29th 7:00 PM $40 -- Come party with your friends from K&L and Olmeca Altos Tequila as we host a pre-Cinco de Mayo event entitled: "How to Survive During the Mexican Lime Shortage." We'll be making some simple tequila cocktails that don't involve limes, like the Paloma and the Bloody Maria, and serving them up with El Sinaloense's renowned seafood and meat dishes. Fresh fish, shrimp, and finely-shredded Machaca beef cooked with peppers and onions, will be served family style allowing you to sit with friends, socialize with other guests, and enjoy the atmosphere. Oh...and hopefully you'll learn a little more about the wonderful Tequilas from Olmeca Altos! Our last dinner at El Sinaloense was legendary and it sold out fast. You won't want to miss out on this fiesta if you even remotely enjoy the Mexican culinary experience. El Sinaloense is in San Mateo located on Palm Ave. behind Safeway. There are no paper tickets for this event, just purchase a ticket and your name will go on to a guest list.
