Guelaguetza parties for Bizarre Foods

Fearless Mexico explorer and trip leader Bill Esparza of StreetGourmetLA appears on Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods Baja next Monday June 14, and to celebrate his newly-flourishing list of TV appearances he's hosting a viewing party at Guelaguetza on Olympic from 6-9 pm. There's a great menu of Oaxacan snacks and creative tequila and mescal cocktails, all for $5. The viewing party is open to the public.
Some of the snacks include:
-grasshoppers, of course -- chapulines with garlic and jalapenos, topped with avocado and Oaxacan cheese;
-quesadillas stuffed with queso fresco and epazote and
-clayudas with mole negro.

And the cocktails...ay caramba!

-Garra de tigre: Mescal and fresh lime garnished with crushed agave worm salt;
-Beso real: Tequila, agave syrup, pomegranate juice, lemon and mint;
or the spicy Real Mexican with tequila, pineapple, cilantro and jalapenos.
