The best food for a rager is Mexican. Fact. Specifically, a taco bar. I’ll admit to giving it a bad rap with a ‘been there, done that’ attitude. Not to mention the difficulty of competing with the amazing authentic tacos LA has to offer, like from Guisados in Boyle Heights. All that aside, when good cocktails are flowing, (and they were, in the form of spicy margaritas and smoky mescal pineapple coolers) a juicy taco is the perfect snack. While I’m a lover of fish tacos, the stars of the night were the “Mama’s Tacos”. After all, who isn’t instantly taken back to childhood with a bite of seasoned ground beef, sharp cheddar, shredded lettuce and tomato (the pickle is a new, and delicious! touch). The bright colors of a Mexican banner are also instantly fun and Amy made the whole night more festive with pinatas galore, hanging flags, touches of turquoise, and yellow flowers. And just in case they weren’t ready for the night to end, guests went home with favors filled with Greg’s serrano chili margarita mix, beautifully packaged by Amy with recipe labels. I’ve learned my lesson: a taco party isn’t boring. It’s a classic.
