Mezcal Tasting

Ok, first things first, what is Mezcal:

Mezcal is a Mexican distilled spirit made from the agave plant. There are many different types of agaves, and each produces a slightly different mezcal. Agave is part of the Agavaceae family, also called maguey. While Tequilais a mezcal made only from the blue agave plant in the region around Tequila, Jalisco, spirits labeled "Mezcal" are often made using other agave plants.
This Tuesday Ole Mexican Grill in Inman Square is holding an informative mezcal tasting paired with appitizers. So, if you are looking for a little midweek booze, nibbles and info, check it out, although I suggest saying away from eating the worm on a work night.
