The people at El Tesoro Tequila are experts on the hooch, no doubt, but they're setting us up for embarrassment by scheduling the tequila-inspired dinner after the tequila tasting with Carlos Camarena, a third-generation master distiller of El Tesoro. Quite frankly, we're lightweights when it comes to liquor, so if we start grasping for carb-laden items early on, either get out of our way or vow to help pick us up off the floor at the end of the night. The Discover the Treasure of El Tesoro dinner and tasting is at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Blue Mesa Grill, 5100 Belt Line Road in Addison. An RSVP is required, so call immediately. The cost is $50 but well worth it, or so we remember from the last tequila tasting. Now that we think about it, though, we remember our speaker urging "sips" rather than "shots." Maybe that's where we went wrong. Call 972-934-0165.
