Gran Centenario, a tequila rich in history and Mexican heritage launched their Angels In Training program at Blue Plate Taco in Santa Monica last night. Their eye catching announcement of their search to honor selfless Latinos within the Los Angeles area attracted passersby’s and select invitees.
At 5:30 pm, a golden angel came to life and blew her horn to summon an array of beautiful white angels who handed out replicas of Mexico’s 1921 Centenario Gold Bullion Coin and shared details of the search of these Angels In Training with attendants and passersby’s.
Guest enjoyed the signature Golden Angel cocktail (recipe below) along with Blue Plate Taco signature dishes including the Ceviche Mixto, Flautas, Quesadillas and Veggie tacos to name a few.
Starting today on Cinco De Mayo, these angels will disperse into neighborhoods throughout “the City of Angels” in search of these AITs who will all be invited and honored at a private celeb hosted event at the Mondrian Hotel in Hollywood on Tuesday May 19th.
