Mexican Independence Day tequila dinner

Sept. 16

Border Grill is celebrating Mexican Independence Day with a special south-of-the-border-inspired tequila dinner, featuring world-renowned premium Sauza Tequila. The multi-course dinner prepared by Executive Chef Chris Keating makes for a complete Mexican foodie fiesta.

Founded in 1873, at the La Perseverancia distillery, Sauza were the first to call the liquor made from ancient blue agave plants "tequila" and the first to export the drink to the United States. 6:30p, $75, 702-632-7403
