Mi Tierra, local Mexican restaurant will sell “Fiesta Survival Kits” since the city’s largest party was canceled due to the coronavirus. The city of San Antonio, along with the rest of the world, has been heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Stores have closed, restaurants have boarded up their dining rooms and residents are encouraged to stay home and stay safe. Thankfully, city officials and community participants have crafted clever ways to keep the spirit and tradition of San Antonio alive. Mi Tierra joins the fight to preserve community spirit and tradition by selling “Fiesta Survival Kits” after the Fiesta was postponed.
Fiesta has been effectively postponed until November 5-15th and La Familiar Cortez Restaurants want to offer something to help keep the Fiesta season spirit alive. During the time when the city is typically preparing for the 11-day party, the restaurant is offering meals.
There are two meal options. One is priced at $70 and another at $75, and includes fajita, fixings, rice, beans, guacamole, pico de gallo, tortillas and chips. They also come equipped with papel picado, cascarones, a Loteria game and access to a Fiesta playlist.
Margaritas and micheladas can be added to the order for $20-$55.
If you want to order a Fiesta kit, place an order online 24 hours in advance, and plan to pick up your meal at Mi Tierra in Market Square.
The restaurant group explains that “The phrase ‘Fiesta responsibly’ has taken on a whole new meaning this year. Fiesta may be postponed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have your own quarantine fiesta with your familia.”
KSAT12 will also be broadcasting last year’s fiesta parades on the dates it would’ve occurred this year. So, go grab your Fiesta Survival Kit, sit down with your family, and enjoy last year’s party from the comfort of your own home.
