Celebrate with the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library at Carnaval: Grand Opening of the Athenaeum Art Center in Logan Heights. Euphoria Brass Band will get the party started with music that will remind you of Bourbon Street just in time for Mardi Gras. Kick up your heels to the jazzy and vivacious tunes as you enjoy a tequila tasting sponsored by Tequila Fortaleza. Savor ice-cold cervezas from Iron Fist Brewing and get your taco fix with fresh tacos made on the spot from a traditional street taco cart by the San Diego Taco Company. Dance to more great music as Radio Pulso del Barrio spins sounds both familiar and new. Revel in an evening of art, music, dancing, drinks, and local bites with friends and other art and music lovers at Carnaval: Grand Opening of the Athenaeum Art Center.
