The event was held at the corner of Abbott Kinney and Venice Blvd., a scant few blocks from the beach in Venice. Two different bars were set up pouring an assortment of tequila cocktails, while the centerpiece bar, Don Julio’s classic Airstream Speakeasy, poured drinks ranging from a delicious Agua Fresca to an excellent cocktail with tequila, coffee and Mexican chocolate. Meanwhile, Guerrilla Tacos served a delicious Hamachi and Uni Taco.  It was a great way to ring in the upcoming holiday!
