12-21-2012 Mayan Calendar Party at Agave

Mayan Calendar

If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you know that on Friday, December 21st the ancient Mayan calendar will reach its end. Some people say this marks the end of the world and others say it means only that the Mayans ran out of space on the calendar.

Here at Agave Restaurants the only prediction we have is that there will be a great party! Come down and celebrate with us at either of our locations in Redmond and Issaquah.

Three Tequilas & Three Cocktails Tasting

Tequilas, Cocktails & Holiday Cheer!

Experience Tequila will be back at Agave on December 1st & 2nd for tequila tasting with a new twist. We will be tasting three exceptional tequilas and three cocktails.

Vertical Flight of Special Artisanal Tequila

To begin, we savor a vertical flight of a blanco, reposado and añejo from the same artisanal distillery.

Taste the blanco. What qualities make it special?

Now taste the reposado and finally the añejo. What has the aging process added?


If tequilas are unique, what happens to the taste in a cocktail? Does the tequila used really matter? You be the judge.

Taste two cocktails made with tequilas from our tasting. And then try another with something entirely different. We will complete the festivities with delicious food from Agave.

  • Issaquah: Saturday, Dec 1st, 2:00 – 4:00 PM
