This is a compensated collaboration with Latina Blogger Connect and Montejo. All thoughts are my own.
As a Los Angeles native, I know that anytime I am in Dodger Stadium is a something to be remembered. So when Montejo invited me and a guest to have a tailgate dinner by Chef Eddie Ruiz of Corazon y Miel right on the field, I knew immediately that 1) this would be an amazing night and 2) my husband and I had our date night!
When we first arrived, I was handed two things: ceviche and a cold Montejo. YUM. Ok, this night was going to be awesome.
We were next split into two groups, one went on an exclusive tour and the other got to have batting practice with Dodgers legend Manny Mota. Guess which my husband made a beeline for?
We went to the Dodgers dug out, and just beyond the doors was an indoor batting cage where players practice and warm up. Everyone was so excited, cause I mean- MANNY MOTA. When my guy got up, he practically skipped over and he beamed when Manny told him he was a natural hitter.
I actually hit a ball- that was cool. I have never tried to even play before, but everyone got a chance with Manny- in fact, he kinda made me! I’m glad he did cause that was an experience!
We chilled in the dug out where most of us took selfies and squealed cause- WE WERE IN THE DUG OUT.
Next- was our dining experience.
ERMMMAGAWDD, you guys. My mouth is watering just thinking about it right now. The entire meal had elements of and was inspired by Montejo. Now, Montejo is an authentic Mexican beer and has been brewed in Mexico for over 100 years, so if that was any sign of what was to come, you know it was going to be good.
…and oh, it was.
Along with the food- we had Montejo “old school” (in a cup), Montejo con limon y sal ahumada (with lime and smoked salt), and Montejolada, which was like a michelada but better.
Seriously, you guys… I have eaten at many highly acclaimed places and I have never had such an incredible meal. My husband and I had possibly one of the best date nights ever and we have Montejo in our hearts forever.
