Felipe’s Fiesta Fest is back

Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month by hosting its second annual Fiesta Fest.

Founded in 2017, Fiesta Fest proved to be one of New Orleans’ biggest events celebrating Mexican and Central American Declarations of Independence. This year, Felipe’s is taking its family-friendly Fiesta Fest to Florida, at both its Gainesville and Naples locations.

Fiesta fest takes place Saturday, September 15th, at Felipe’s Mid-City, Gainesville and Naples locations, from 5pm – Midnight. Head on over to Fiesta Fest to enjoy live music, authentic recipes inspired from Mexico and other Central American countries, dancing, and, of course, the best rocks and frozen, fresh-squeezed margaritas around! Who doesn’t need another excuse to indulge in a fresh margarita? #TreatYoSelf

Holy Guacamole! National Avocado Day is approaching

National Avocado Day

National Avocado Day takes place July 31, and there’s no better place to honor this special fruit (yes, it’s a fruit), than at Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria.

Felipe’s features fresh avocado in more than just it’s signature guacamole. When it comes to fresh avocado, the Guacamolillo sauce is a Felipe’s favorite. This spicy sauce is made from a creamy blend of fresh avocados, tomatillos, garlic, cilantro, and serrano chiles, making it the perfect accompaniment to the authentic tacos. For more fresh avocado, try the Tortilla Soup, or just add some fresh cut slices to any item for a small upcharge.

You know the drill. No matter where you go, guac is extra. You’ve heard it a million times, and by now, you’ve probably made your peace with it. Providing this is not the case, allow me to give you the lowdown — avocado prices have more than doubled in recent years due to shortages in supply and a rapid increase in demand following bad weather in both Mexico and California, where the majority of avocados are grown. There are simply not enough green goodies to go around.

Without a doubt, Felipe’s continues to prioritize fresh avocado, using an average of approximately 86,000 pounds of Hass avocados per year. So, no need to stress.

Let’s be honest, avocado toast is so last year. Hop off the bandwagon and get your Hass over to Felipe’s to celebreate avocados like a boss. #Guac&Roll

BOGO Margaritas for National Tequila Day!

BOGO Margaritas for National Tequila Day!

Try to stay calm. Take some deep breaths. No, you’re not going crazy. National Tequila Day is legit.
We’re all thinking it… Who determines these kinds of things? Who came up with National Tequila Day? After a good ten minutes of searching on Google, I gave up. However, to be honest, I don’t really care who initiated National Tequila Day. I’m more concerned about how I will celebrate this VERY important day.
Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria is set to celebrate National Tequila Day on Tuesday, July 24th, by offering BOGO margaritas! Felipe’s classic handmade key-lime margaritas are made fresh to order. The simple recipe includes 100% blue agave tequila, fresh squeezed key limes, a house-made orange liqueur, and agave syrup.
Staying true to its mission of curating authentic recipes, the Felipe’s team traveled to the Herradura distillery in Jalisco, Mexico and handpicked the Double Barrel Reposado Tequila which is aged for up to a year in a charred oak barrel and then re-barreled into a virgin white oak barrel for one month more.
Perfect timing? National Tequila Day falls on Taco Tuesday this year. Reposado tequila is the perfect compliment to any of Felipe’s authentic scratch-made recipes, especially the tacos.
It should come as no surprise that I will be celebrating Tequila’s biggest day at Felipe’s. Turn your Tuesday inside out and celebrate National Tequila Day at Felipe’s! For More information, see our Facebook event.
*BOGO special available at all Felipe’s locations*
