Raise a glass to the Merida English Library for surviving lockdown. Its gradual reopening is afoot and Thursday’s MEL Wine Tasting is evidence of just that.
Hosted at the library, Calle 53 near 68, the event features four Mexican wines paired with Mexican street-food-inspired tapas. Cost is 500 pesos for members, 600 for non-members.
The event runs from 7 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 18. Proof of vaccination required.
The wines will be presented by Fernando Almazan of Sommelier Express coupled with tasty treats from Patricia, aka Paty, from the atypical taco stand, Atipico.
The wine tasting is part of the Merida English Library’s Welcome Home to MEL initiative. Subsequent MEL wine tastings will return to fabulous private home venues in Mérida on the third Thursday of each month.
Tickets are available at MEL’s front desk or on their website.
