Mole Throwdown


Mole is a rich, traditional Mexican sauce that, though it comes in many varieties, often combines chocolate with an array of spices and chilies to create a unique flavor profile. On Thursday at Centro Cultural Aztlan’s Mole Throwdown, whether you're new to the robust delights and myriad adaptations of mole or a seasoned aficionado, you can dig into the mole-verse in the best possible way: by trying a little bit of everything. The entry fee, which helps support Aztlan’s cultural programming, allows you to sample and vote on mole dishes from more than 15 competitors (The Box Street Social, Cocina Heritage and Viva Vegeria among them) and includes two drink tickets to use at a tequila tasting bar or for cocktails made with Tito’s vodka. The 8th annual event also features a silent art auction and performances by Ghost Tracks, Roger “Rabbit” Garza, Jerry Vasquez and Grupo Folklorico de Bendiciones. $40-$75, 6-10pm Thu, Oct. 20, Centro Cultural Aztlan, 1800 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 432-1896,
