It’s tequila time! Gregg Glaser, a nationally recognized spirits and beer connoisseur, will uncover the history and myths of tequila. Learn about how Mexico’s national drink is made, what the different styles are and the story behind its curious history. A curated variety of tequila and mezcal will be sampled throughout the night. Tacos Mexico of Norwalk, CT will provide Mexican appetizers. Proceeds from the event will go towards the Norwalk Historical Society’s educational programs.
