5th Annual Agave Fest

No margaritas allowed! The Hotel Congress ups the ante for bartenders who show up to win the public’s affection at the 5th Annual Agave Fest.

Tucson’s most renowned bartenders will have the opportunity to showcase their own agave-based creations in any cocktail other than a margarita, in a friendly competition meant to show off the versatility of agave-based spirits.

At the annual celebration that serves as a precursor to Cinco de Mayo festivities, the public will also have the joy of sampling more than 40 agave and related spirits, such as tequila, mezcal, sotol, and bacanora.

Cup Café’s ever popular street tacos, plus other tasty bites to soak up the booze, will be available all night.  And, it wouldn’t be a Hotel Congress party if live music wasn’t part of the ticket.

The celebration of all-things-agave will take place on Friday, May 3, 2013 at 7pm.

Admission includes two tacos & salsa bar!
