Commemorate Mexico's Bicentennial This Friday with a Wine Tasting at Union Station

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

Tired of the same old margarita and nachos? Friday night go upscale and raise a glass of California's best wines to toast Mexico's Bicentennial. Union Station will be the location of Altamed's 5th annual East LA Meets Napa Valley Benefit. In addition, this year's event will present some of Baja California’s best wineries from the Valle de Guadalupe region like L.A. Cetto Vineyard and J.C. Bravo.

Paired with the wines will be cuisine from some of the finest Latin restaurants in Los Angeles, including Loteria Grill, Tamayo Restaurant, Cobra’s & Matadors, El Tepeyac Café, Homegirl Café, La Parrilla Restaurant, and our personal favorite, Rivera.

The 60 wine and food pairing stations, accompanied by the music of Jose Rizo’s Mongorama, are all part of a benefit to support AltaMed’s mission - "increasing access to quality and culturally relevant health and human services to underserved communities in Southern California."

So ditch the usual Friday happy hour and hit Union Station from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m tomorrow! For questions check the website or call 323-889-7342. $150 per person, a reasonable price for the high quality, and it's for a good cause!
