Acacia Mexican Beer Dinner This Thursday

It’s fair to say I have no real love of Mexican food.  I mean my typical choice when I ate Mexican was limited to to fajitas. I know you’re saying, “but what about tacos?”  Tacos usaed to be the thing I fixed at home that I considered very simple that I never desired to have it out. 
That being said you should check out Acacia Midtown’s Mexican Beer Dinner on Thursday July 19th.  Just as with their Goose Island dinner, the menu will be served throughout the night from 5:30 – 9pm.   Oh and before you knock Mexican beers, I’ve had Negro Modelo and Dos Equis Amber and was pleasantly surprised by both beers.  There’s no doubt the food will be top notch as well.  I for one am intrigued and may just be exposing myself to some new cuisine as I did at their last dinner. Hop spiced pate, anyone?!

Tortilla Soup Consomme with Roast Chicken & Nopalitos Salad with Cactus Pear Vinaigrette
