The holiday season is here and along with the mistletoe strung up above our heads, and the lights twinkling in trees, comes the season for giving as we all prepare ourselves for the New Year. On the 4500 block of Travis sits Dallas’ favorite Mexican kitchen and Tequila bar Trece, and they taken this to heart, offering complimentary dinners every Monday evening for all of the clients on their mailing list. This winter Trece, lucky number thirteen, prepares for a rush of 250-300 people on Monday nights as they offer a delectable line up of delicious dinner choices including an appetizer and main course.
Be sure to try their most popular drink, the frozen blueberry mojito. Ask for a sample and they will bring you one in a red Trece embossed thimble sized shot glass. If you like tequila, then you have come to the right place, Trece carries over 125 different types of Mexico’s finest tequilas. Ask your bartender which ones he recommends. Another signature of Trece is their table side guacamole, made fresh, right in front of you as your server whips everything together is a big black ceramic bowl.
