It is the first Tuesday of the month. So I gladly invite you all once again to join me over at Lucha Cartel for their weekly Latin night. Cocktail hour will be from 6:45-8 p.m. The free salsa 101 basics lesson runs from 8:00-9:00 p.m., followed by social dancing till 2 a.m. Kitchen stays open late (approximately 11:30 p.m.), so treat yourself to some wonderful tacos, mouth-watering guacamole with actual bacon or other ingredients, a chorizo burger, Cuban sandwich, or one of the specials that change on a weekly basis. As a reminder, everyone is responsible for paying for their own meal and drinks. I look forward to seeing those who can make it out.
National Mechanics’ new Philadexican cousin Lucha Cartel is serving a tex-mex mix of apps and entrees at 2nd and Chestnut along with a bevy of beverages like mojitos, margs and a host of specialty cocktails. The decor is your typical rudos y tecnicos battling dia de los muertos monsters in a bloodbath of distressed bar stools, prickly cacti and evocative lighting. Your typical Mexican joint, basically.
It’s like salsa verde, but instead of it being a delicious green sauce to put on tacos, it’s you drinking and learning how to salsa dance! Think of it like karaoke, except sexier (if that’s possible) and funnier (almost definitely not possible.) So come shake your hips, clack your castanets or just drink and eat and enjoy. We’ll be hosting Salsa Tuesdays every Tuesday starting at 8pm. Ole!
