It may have a new name, but all the food and spirits San Diegans have come to appreciate remains true at Old Town’s Taste + Tequila happening today. Formerly “Taste of Old Town,” guests can gorge on sumptuous meals and whet their whistle at 10 of the area’s best Mexican restaurants, including Casa Guadalajara, Rockin' Baja Lobster and its newest addition, Tahona. Each ticket includes a tequila sampling and a specialty tequila cocktail, as well as featured food tastes. Proceeds from the event will support the Old Town San Diego Chamber of Commerce’s promotion of Old Town.
Taste + Tequila Old Town: 5 to 9 p.m. today. At participating restaurants in Old Town, San Diego. $35; $25 food only. Tickets will also be available the day of the event on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 3 p.m. at the will-call table next to the Old Town Trolley on Twiggs Street and San Diego Avenue. oldtownsandiego.org/tastetequila
