No matter the weather on Sept. 27, you'll be able to taste paletas, or ice pops as Artesana calls them, at the Taste of México.
This year, the event will be divided into two parts--a brunch during the day with kid-friendly activities and at night the "adult" tasting with alcoholic beverages.
The annual Taste of México gets bigger every year. This year, 35 restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries and other food outfits will supply more Mexican food than you could possibly taste in a single evening.
Desserts will include cookies hand-painted to resemble Mexican tiles--azulejos (above). They're from Compañia de Café in San Fernando. The yellow cookies are flavored with cinnamon, the blue cookies with vanilla.
