Last night I won a bottle of tequila in the raffle for Martha Gonzalez (see previous post). A tequila silver el Viejo Luis. I didn't find a description of the silver, but their website describes their tequila blanco thusly: "Honest, Natural, Vegetal, boasting soft floral aromas blended perfectly with hints of citrus, Mint, fresh herbs, tropical fruit and Pepper." Sounds yummy. I cant wait to "experience the difference." End of free plug.

There was a great turnout for the event, and I met a bunch of good people, including David Sandoval, who won my drawing in the raffle.
