Celebrate National Tequila Day with a Tacos & Tequila Dinner
There’s no better way to celebrate summer, and National Tequila Day, than with a Tacos and Tequila dinner! Honey Salt is hosting a fun fiesta group dining experience on Tuesday, July 24th, 2018 at 6:30 pm. Executive chef Anthony Taormina is preparing this Latin-inspired feast. Honey Salt bartenders will be mixing up specialty cocktails that can be paired with each delicious course!
Tacos & Tequila Pairing
The history of the coupled food and drink
The fun alliterated pair of tacos and tequila is not only fun to say but even more pleasurable to enjoy for a complete experience of a taco and tequila dinner. But the food and beverage couple, which started out as singles, each has a unique history. According to Miami Culinary Tours, The word “taco” had its inception in the 18th century. When men went into silver mines in Mexico, a taco was referred to as paper wrapped around gunpowder. But, as most things evolve, foodies are appreciative of it’s application to the delicious morsel that consists of a combination of a corn or wheat tortilla and then is filled with meat, vegetables, rice, and/or spices. In the perfect pairing, Tequila is more than a distilled spirit; it’s a cultural icon of Mexico. Tequila is one of the most internationally recognized flavors of Mexico. It’s less well-known cousin, mezcal, is an equally important part of the Mexican cultural landscape and both spirits evoke the true essence of Mexico as the law dictates that tequila and mezcal can only be manufactured in Mexico.
Muy Delicioso Menu Items
What’s on the menu
The Watermelon Margarita will be the umbrella drink for the dinner party. The food fiesta kicks off with a trio of items.

5 Beers to Try This Season at Big Dog’s Brewing Company
Entering a new season of the year is exciting because that means new, refreshing beers to taste. When the weather gets warmer, Las Vegas brewing companies shuffle out their autumn and winter stouts and brown ales for a lighter palette of brews that resonate with spring and summer. Beer connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike are putting saisons and IPA craft beers of Las Vegas in their fridges to prepare for that summer desert heat.
While on your Las Vegas brewery tour in search of the perfect crisp beer to beat the heat with, don’t sleep on Big Dog’s Brewing Company. This brewery has a thing for all things Wisconsin, a state that is known for acing the art of craft beer. Their extensive list of brews includes their signature classics and new experimental beers.
Big Dog’s Brewing Company has so many tasty beers, so we get that it’s hard to choose just one to try. But with a little help from the beer experts at the Las Vegas brewing company, we’ve narrowed it down for you. Here are our favorite beers that we will be drinking by the pool, while watching the Golden Knights win again, or while enjoying another evening out in Las Vegas.
Tequila Barrel Aged Saison Lime Radler
It’s a mouthful to say, but it’s also a mouthful of flavor. This punchy saison is like the classic Dog Gone Saison—but with a twist of aged tequila and lime. Pair it with some delicious shareables: Buffalo Cauliflower, House Made Pretzel Sticks, and Hudson Valley Duck Wings.
Dog Gone Saison
If the beer has a seasonal spinoff, you can safely assume the original hits the spot. This sour beer is also light, which means the perfect time to crack this cold one open is now through October. It goes down even better when tried with a healthy side of Grilled Delta Asparagus.
This brew is a Big Dog’s Brewing Company classic for a reason. Packed with citrus and pine flavors, the Underbite IPA is dry and goes down smoothly—so be careful. It tastes even better when paired with your dinner: the Dirty Dog IPA Battered Cod, Grilled Bone-In New York Strip, Hand-Cut Kennebec Steak Fries, and Blue Lake Beans.
Tripel Dog Dare
You’re not full on food and craft beer yet, are you? The Tripel Dog Dare is the most bananas Belgian tripel you’ll ever try—it tastes like bananas and is slightly sweet—and it makes for a great dessert beer. We recommend pairing it with a dish of the Tripel Dog Dare Beeramisu.
It’s Beer O’Clock
If any of the descriptions of these beers and foods made your mouth water, here’s the good news. It will all be under the same roof for our Las Vegas foodies to try on May 22 at renowned Las Vegas restaurant Honey Salt. Tickets start at $49, which buys you good food, tasty brews, and even better times.
