The conservation of local agriculture is something all partners are passionate about, especially Janos Wilder.  Hotel Congress is working in conjunction with the DOWNTOWN Kitchen + Cocktails Owner to host an Agave Dinner at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 1 in the Drawing Room at Maynards Market & Kitchen. There are only 32 seats to the exclusive fundraising dinner and tickets are $95 each (plus tax and gratuity) with proceeds benefiting Native Seeds/SEARCH, whose mission is to preserve the traditional agricultural community. Sergio Inurrigaro will also be present before the dinner for a meet and greet at 6:30 p.m.

The international collaboration bears many fruits, but one in particular is Sergio Inurrigaro, President and Founder of the Pro Mezcal Culture Association as well as the Director of the Master Mezcalier Program. With ample knowledge of traditional Mexican culture and gastronomy, he has led more than 1,750 Mezcal tastings in more than sixty-one cities across the world, including in China, Russia, Europe, United States, Canada, South America, and Mexico and has positioned Mezcal among the world´s elite beverages.
