Two great tastes that go great together: TACOS, and... TEQUILA. That was the germ of the Merc's latest food/food/music/fun bonanza: TNT: Tacos 'n' Tequila! We've paired up with our pals at Sauza Tequila and Mississippi Studios for a long afternoon of...

TACOS! Taste creations from La Taq, Mi Mero Mole, Xico, and (stepping slightly out of character) Bunk Sandwiches.

TEQUILA! We have drink recipes from Hale Pele's Blair Reynolds, Emily Mistell of Rum Club, Jacob Grier, and Tender Bar's Lydia Reissmueller.

AND MUSIC! Sets from Tiburones and War 'n' Buffett, which—wait for it—is a SUPERGROUP of musicians (members of Viva Voce, Blind Pilot, Genders, Los Lobos, Magic Mouth, and A Year Afar) mashing up War songs with Jimmy Buffett songs, which would probably be a horrible idea in the hands of less talented musicians, but in this case I'm guessing it'll be... amazing? YES, amazing!

Advance tickets to the Saturday, June 28 event are on sale now, and get 'em quick! The $15 admission gets you four taco tastings and four tequila tastings, but if you wait to get 'em at the door they jump to $25. Don't let that happen!


In the meantime, RSVP on Facebook for mouthwatering updates!
