    Speaking of cocktails, get ramped up for tomorrow by visiting one (or more) of the five bars featured in Zagat Seattle’s list of top 5 agave cocktails in Seattle! You can also learn more about the festival here and from KOMO and Seattle Refined here.

    Get your tickets online today starting at $45, or tomorrow at the door for $55.

The city’s best bartenders put forth their agave cocktails, which have been whittled down to a few finalists who will present their spirit concoctions at the event for the chance to win a trip to Mexico.
