Thanks to L.A.’s own Oaxacan princess who has recently doubled as the culinary curator for this year’s HOLA MEXICO Film Festival, Bricia Lopez. The Glutster is giving away a pair of tickets to tomorrow’s screening of Viva Mezcal at Guelaguetza. Yes, this is the same event that I wrote about for LA Weekly with free-flowing Mezcal and food cooked by Oaxacan chef Rodolfo Castellano.

To enter, all you gotta do is leave a comment telling me the name of a type of agave that is used to make any type of mezcal in Mexico. To keep with the theme, Blue Agave doesn’t count!

One winner will be randomly chosen tomorrow at 11 a.m.

Cheers, suerte!
