Drinks and a Dozen at Waterbar

Friday
Margarita-Making Classes at Tres Agaves
TEQUILA 101

Margarita-Making Classes at Tres Agaves

Gather up to eighty of your closest friends and a tequilero will walk you through how to make the perfect (or, most potent) margarita. In two margaritas' time, you'll also learn everything you need to know about 100-percent agave tequila (beyond how to drink it).

$35/person, 130 Townsend St (between 2nd and 3rd), schedule a class by email

Bushfire Benefit at South
