Chelo Kitchen Takeover
The Library is honored to welcome back Luna Contreras
of Chelo for another kitchen takeover!
This five part dining experience will celebrate traditional Mexican cuisine, as Chelo showcases street style snacks, pastries, and libations with whimsical playfulness. Cocktail and spirit pairings will be thoughtfully selected by MWL Education Manager & Spirit Curator, Brett Adams.
