Mercadito, 108 W. Kinzie St., has announced it is extending its Put Up the Christmas Tree and Call It a Year Pop-Up. Beginning Saturday, October 3, Mercadito transformed into a holiday-inspired wonderland, complete with holiday décor, including Christmas trees, Christmas lights, stockings and more. Throughout the duration of the pop-up, guests who visit and wear an ugly sweater will receive 15% off.
To compliment the festive space for the pop-up through Sunday, November 1, Mercadito is offering a themed menu of bites and specialty cocktails, which is available in the main dining room. The Put Up the Christmas Tree and Call It a Year Pop-Up menu features Mango Guacamole, Chicken and Mole and Caramel Flan, as well as libations for guests to sip, including Candy Cane-tini, with candy cane-infused tequila, italicus and strawberry; Sleigh All Day, made with a homemade, traditional Mexican pineapple “kombucha” and tequila reposado; and Kristkindle Ponche, a twist on the classic Mexican Christmas punch spiked with Don Julio Blanco and served warm. Food items range in price from $10 - $12 each and all specialty cocktails are $14.50.
Highlighting the south-of-the-border taquerias and cantinas with local and seasonal ingredients, Mercadito currently offers a limited menu of tacos, signature guacamoles, margaritas and more.
