The GOODS from Tacofino
Vancouver, BC | Vancouver Pride Week partygoers can ramp up the feisty and get fierce at Tacofino’s Taco Bar on Friday, August 3 when the Gastown hotspot hosts a Pride Party from 3pm to 7pm. DJ Gissala will drop the beats and four drag performers will strut their stuff during an event that features Happy Hour food specials until 7 p.m. and the Pride-themed RoSlay Sangria, which mingles rosé, fresh lime juice, El Jimador Blanco, agave nectar and soda with peaches, strawberries, blueberries and mint. From August 3 through 6, a dollar from each RoSlay cocktail ($8) and two dollars from each pitcher ($24) sold will be donated to QMUNITY, a local centre providing support and resources for the LGBTQ/2S community.
A perfect patio sipper, Tacofino’s Pride-themed sangria will have you shouting “Ro-Slay All Day!” and ordering another round. The pink-hued punch offers a south-of-the-border spin on the classic Spanish sangria and features a mélange of rosé, tequila, agave and fresh berries.
Serves 3–4, depending on how much of a party you’re planning on having.
