Cafe Pacifico is back for one night only at Salt Meats Cheese
We were all devo when Cafe Pacifico closed its doors on Riley Street, but our pain was greatly soothed when the stellar Cafe Paci moved in. Now we can have the best of both worlds (for a night, anyway) with a Cafe Pacifico Mexican fiesta night at Salt Meats Cheese in Alexandria. Grab your sombreros because Phil Bayly and the team are back for a night of wood-fired Mexican pizzas, nachos, tequila and Pacifico beers all night long. $5 includes entry and a beer (food is purchased separately).
Visit the Salt Meats Cheese website to book.
