Jimador coming to Sacramento


Ajua! Mexican Independence Day lands on Wednesday, and as part of the local celebrations an honest-to-goodness jimador is coming to town. We're not talking about El Jimador, the tequila brand, but an actual jimador who harvests agave plants. Cutting off the leaves from a large agave plant is tricky stuff, requiring the use of a hoe-like device called a coa de jima. Jose Cortes, the head jimador for the Herradura and El Jimador brands, will demonstrate how all this agave harvesting is done. Here's where you can find Cortes this week:

Wednesday, September 16
6-9 p.m.
Zocalos (1801 Capitol Avenue, Sacramento, CA)

Thursday, September 17
6-9 p.m.
Centro's (2730 J Street, Sacramento, CA)

Friday, September 18
5-7 p.m.
La Superior (5731 Hillsdale Blvd, Sacramento, CA)

Friday, September 18
8-10 p.m.
Carmelita's (4071 Howard Street, Fair Oaks, CA)
