Alam nyo ba na malaki ang impluwensya ng Mexico sa Pilipinas? In fact, they helped and taught some of the revolucionarios how to overthrow the Spanish colonialists, after they had had their own successful revolution. And, kaya siguro mas Latino din tayo, because we had 250 years of trading through the Acapulco Galleon trade. There are a lot of Mexican influences in our culture, as much as Spanish, especially when it comes to food (ang Kaldereta ay “Chili Rojo”, ang Nilaga ay “Caldo”…atbp). So I guess it’s only fitting that we celebrate with our Mexican amigos during their Indepence Day festivities.
On September 19, 2015, Saturday, the 2015 Fiesta Mexicana will be held at the AXON events space of the newly opened avant garde Green Sun hotel located at 2258 Chino Roces Ave.
Tacos, tequilas, mariachi and more!
FIESTA MEXICANA IS the biggest Mexican fiesta this side of the world!
The event will feature pop up booths from the best Mexican restaurants in town, unlimited 100% blue agave tequila based cocktails, entertainment from a Mariachi band from Mexico, tasting stations from hard to find boutique tequilas, and lots of exciting prizes. These are premium tequilas peeps… the kind that you sip and savor. My favorite Mexican joint, A’Toda Madre is actually participating, so I am soooo there!!!
The festivities will start at 6PM, kicking off with sampling stations of the different kinds of tequilas from blancos, reposados, añejos and extra añejos. The main fiesta will commence promptly at 7PM where free – flowing tequila based cocktails will be available the entire night. A variety of carefully selected Mexican dishes from A’Toda Madre, Tacos Chinggones, Chupacabra, Orale, Chihuahua, Cielo, and Green Sun will be offered as well. Some of the dishes will be created especially for the event to showcase different types of Mexican cuisine. A 10 – man mariachi band will be flown in for the event from Mexico to entertain guests. (Arriba! Arriba! La Bamba!…yun lang naiintindihan ko, but the music is fun and for dancing!)
