Bodega Bites Event:
Timed against Hispanic Heritage Month, the brand announced the launch of Bodega Bites, a Taco Tuesday event series hosted by Sánchez to celebrate Mexican culture.
In a world filled with gimmicky food items and fast trends, Bodega Bites shines a light on local bodega and mercado owners across the U.S. who are known for their timeless taco recipes filled with years of tradition and true craftsmanship.
The event series will hit Los Angeles, Austin and New York, where Tequila CAZADORES and Chef Sánchez will host a mix of happy hours and late night deliveries featuring the local bodega or mercado's most popular tacos, as well as exclusive bodega-inspired recipes crafted by Chef Sánchez.
Kicking off in Los Angeles, Bodega Bites will host its first Taco Tuesday event where Vallarta Supermarkets, home of the original carne asada, will be serving up their al pastor taco and their carefully marinated carne asada taco.
