Second Lamb, Mezcal, and Artisanal Beer Festival at Casa de Aves
By Antonio De Jesús Aguado
Imagine being able to sample lamb cooked 18 different ways, sip artisanal beer or mezcal and dance to the rhythm of live music all in one spot while enjoying the outdoors and supporting nonprofit organizations.
All this will be possible at the Second Annual Lamb, Mezcal and Artisinal Beer Festival, which will be held August 11 at Casa de Aves.
Organizers of the festival, which also will celebrate the inauguration of the Salón Nogal, located in the gardens of Casa de Aves, expect between 800 and 1,200 guests. Among the 18 lamb dishes offered will be cordero a la griega (Greek style), al sarcófago (in puff pastry) and even barbacoa de hoyo (pit-cooked). Live music will be provided by bands such as Manix, Los Peques and a popular sanmiguelense, “Chilo.”
Tickets are now on sale in advance for 250 pesos at La Biblioteca. The day of the event the price will be 300 pesos. A percentage of the proceeds will go to nonprofit organizations such as CENCRE, CASA, Casa ALMA, Casa Hogar Santa Julia and La Biblioteca. There will be free transportation from outside La Aldea on Ancha de San Antonio. The Centro de Crecimiento will also offer rides for those with special transportation needs. Casa de Aves is equipped for wheelchair access.
