The Tequila Express is back in Miami!

The Tequila Express is back in Miami for its third time, but the party leaves the station just once -- so make sure you don't miss the bus, so to speak.
On Thursday, January 29, from 6 to 10 p.m., The Tequila Express, presented by Tequila Herradura and New Times, pulls into the station, so to speak, and passengers will hop on four busses that will transport them on a journey to four different restaurants throughout Coral Gables and Coconut Grove. Consider it an upscale scavenger hunt of sorts, but instead of seeking out squirrels, a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt, and an old souvenir ashtray of Miami Beach -- your search quenches your thirst for tequila!
While on the bus, you'll learn how tequila is made and the differences between blanco, reposado, and añejo tequilas. You'll also learn how to make tequila cocktails by trained mixologists.
The Tequila Express begins and ends at the Aragon Avenue parking garage (285 Aragon Ave.) in Coral Gables. A ticket-to-ride is only $25 and includes tequila samplings, cocktails, bites, and transportation from restaurant to restaurant. That's cheaper than the average happy hour, by the way...
Purchase tickets at miaminewtimes.com/tequilaexpress, but hurry -- seats are limited (though the tequila is not).
Here's a little preview of the fun (and tequila) you'll be having:
