Mexican food, washed down with a few samples of tequila-aged whiskey and rum, maybe followed up with some homemade ice cream?

Sounds like a recipe for a good time and a festive way to kick off Memorial Day weekend.

Good Food Pittsburgh and Wigle Whiskey are joining forces for a Taco and Tequila Festival from 5 to 10 p.m. May 25 at the Wigle Whiskey Barrelhouse, 1055 Spring Garden Ave. on Pittsburgh's North Side.

Cocktails and tacos will mark the occasion of the release of Wigle Whiskey's tequila-aged whiskey, Al Centro, and Wigle Abajo rum, each aged for three years in tequila barrels, according to a news release.

Each $20 ticket includes samples of the new liquors, a signature cocktail, a glass of Threadbare Cider and Mead cider, salsa and chips, discount on the new liquors' purchase, and live music from The Semi-Supervillains from 7 to 9 p.m.

Vendors selling food will include La Palapa, Edgar's Best Tacos, Cool Beans Taco Truck, Casa Reyna and Millie's Homemade Ice Cream.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
