It's with great pleasure that I announce the May 4 Midnight Brunch event! We'll be celebrating the eve of the 150th Anniversary of Cinco de Mayo in a super sexy private NoHo space while taking you on a tasty trip down Mexico's mole route. Of course, the night wouldn't be complete without some tequila and mezcal cocktails as well as a sweet tipple featuring Kahlua.

I've long been obsessed with Mexico and its culinary culture. While most people think of Coronas, salsa, tacos and mariachi bands ... there is so much more to this beautiful country and its cuisine. I'm talking moles (the earthy, spice-laden and often chocolate-based savory sauces made differently in every region), indigenous chilis, mushrooms and huitalacoche. Pork (in every iteration) and gorgeous fresh seafood along its coastal regions. The birthplace of tequila and mezcal, Mexico is a heaven for cocktail and food lovers alike. Check out my personal pictures from my last trip to the Quintana Roo region (Mexican Caribbean).

I'm even more excited to be presenting this edition of Midnight Brunch in partnership with Tafari Travel -- THE people work with when it comes to custom culinary travel -- and the Mexico Tourism Board. The ticketing is being handled by our friends at UrbanDaddy. We put the menu together in collaboration with Fonda Restaurants (their second location just opened in the LES in February).

And now, the juicy details ....
