You can’t go to a fiesta without Spanish guitar music to get you clapping and dancing on your feet. Musician Scot Taber will strum your heartstrings with his intimate solo guitar as you sip, savor and party the evening away!


#4 | Wind Down

Located in the historic district of Downtown Santa Ana, El Mercado Modern Cuisine exudes modernism with sleek granite walls and floors, hanging light bulb fixtures and greenery trailing across the walls and ledges. Whether you’re coming with a date or a group of friends, the contemporary vibes will have you immersed in conversations throughout the event.

#5 | A Helping Heart

Better than the savory food and tasty drinks is knowing that all proceeds from the event will go to CHOC Children’s! Helping out the community by eating, drinking and socializing sounds like the best opportunity—we’ll say gracias to that!
