First-Ever 'Liquid Chicago' Almost Here


If you didn't think you had enough boozy bashes to attend this summer, here's yet another.

Mercadito's launching its first-ever spirited dinner series Monday, and to kick it off in style, they're generously offering four lucky 312DD readers 50 percent off the $55 price tag (excluding tax and tip) per person.

As part of the deal, you'll get four courses of their magnificent Mexican fare paired with Tres Generaciones Tequila cocktails. You'll also be led through a progressive tasting experience of the tequila. Chefs Patricio Sandoval and Aldo Ayala have also included Tres Generaciones in some of the dishes, so if you don't get a buzz by the end of the evening, you did it wrong!

To snag a reservation for the dinner, you must call the restaurant here, but in order to get the special 50 percent off 312DD deal, you MUST email me at ASAP. I've got exactly four seats at 6:30pm, so whomever gets to me first gets 'em. UPDATE: Those tickets are now gone!

If you miss out on this spirited dinner, Mercadito's doing more until the end of the year:
