LAist recently hit Hornitos' Mischieve in the Garden of Agave event at The Hollywood Forever Cemetary. The party was held in the cemetary-adjacent 1931 Masonic Lodge that was recently restored by Jay Boileau. The original tilework and wood detailing make it obvious why Los Angeles Magazine named it Best Lodge Revamp in this year's "Best of" issue.

Mischieve is a Sauza-coined term for switching out the traditional liquor in cocktails for tequila, drinks they have dubbed "Hornitails". The trend is catching on, and some drinks definitely work better than others. Fruity or sweet drinks, like mojitos, work well, but I hope to never drink another Tequila Collins in my life.

Outside, DJs Devin Lucien and Frankie Inglese were spinning. Upstairs, go go dancers were probably raising the ghostly eyebrows of Masons past as they did their bump and grind in the Masonic Temple. Passed hors d'ouvres included ceviche on plantains, mini tacos, sliders and little empenadas. But the real entertainment of the night was the people-watching as the beautiful people glided past.
