Catch up with your fellow SITE Minnesota friends for a fun casual interactive networking event followed by a personal tour into the world of Tequila. Immerse yourself in the sights and flavors of Mexico with our host Michael Barnhart, Hilton Los Cabos / Conrad Punta de Mita, and resident Tequila expert. Tequila is far more than a Margarita ingredient. It’s a multi-faceted liquor with a rich history and a wide variety of colors and flavors. This engaging event will highlight the history and culture of Tequila, the different types of Tequila and how they are made as well as appetizing food pairing suggestions. We will also focus on the safety and benefits of International travel to Mexico with post-COVID food and beverage safety policies and a refresher on VAT reclaim and recovery.
