If your weeknight activities have turned into taking advantage of the evening free passes at LACMA and taking in a Diego Rivera or two, it may be time to add some spice in your post-work ritual with this Adventure: mojito-making and salsa dancing lessons, plus tacos.
We'll gather at Candela Taco Bar, nested in Miracle Mile, where our team of caliente twinkle toes will be on hand to make sure we dance the night away well fed and hydrated. After receiving introductions to our bartending and salsa trainers, we'll split into groups for a crash course on these verdant, minty, and never-dull drinks. The bartenders will explain what types of rum to use, proper mint mincing techniques, and provide ideas for adding personal mojito touches like fresh berries. And once we've learned a bit about the cocktails, we'll have a drink ticket to enjoy a mojito on our own.
With our ankles feeling saucy, we'll learn to cut a rug, south-of-the-border style, getting sizzling lessons from salsa instructors. Expect a heavy dose of footwork, lessons on arm positioning, and most importantly, instruction on counting to the rhythm of the music. After two hours of drinks and salsa, we'll aim to satisfy our tums: Choose two tacos from a list of barbacoa, grilled chicken, and cream corn. It's an evening that's quite the break from the routine.
