The semi-formal evening of The Tequila Gala will include a 4-course dinner with tequila pairings. The menu offering will be a unique showcase of the Colorado harvest and reflect the Rio's commitment to local, fresh produce.

Starting at 6p, enjoy a cocktail hour with live mariachi music with dinner starting at 7p. Throughout the dinner, we will have musical talents brought to you by The Devon Parker Band and will end the night with dancing. Ticket price includes 4-course dinner with tequila pairing, 1 additional drink ticket, free photo booth, Tequila Passport, and live entertainment.

A cash bar will also be available.

You can also purchase your ticket in-person (no phone calls, please) at the Fort Collins Rio location to avoid additional fees and processing. No refunds available as this is a one-time event.

Until February 1, 2018, fill the passport by tasting a variety of tequilas and receive a custom stamp from your server or bartender. Once the book is filled, submit your passport - include your full name, phone number, and email - to a manager at your local Rio and you will be entered to win a trip to Mexico!
