Tito’s for the block
Tito’s Tacos is hosting a gigantic party on October 4 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., in conjunction with Tito’s Handmade Vodka. The afternoon event features, as expected, lots of tacos and vodka, and runs $25 a head. For that ticket price diners get to taste three different speciality cocktails as well as some Tito’s food, with live music and more happening simultaneously. All anyone has to do is show up, buy tickets at the door, and all the proceeds go to the Culver City Cultural Affairs Foundation.
