    Hey Joe, thanks for the listing. I travel to the LA area a couple of times a year, but usually down south from Redondo to Long Beach. Do you know of any good spots in that area?

    Thanks, Buzz

    I do not currently know of any in that area but I am heading to LA this week and will post some if I find out of any new places. Glad to hear you enjoy and appreciate the list.

    Theres a place called The Spanish Kitchen on cahuenga that has fair share of tequila... and starting this summer they will be having a once a week tequila school.
    Trying to explain the meaning of the word oxymoron? Virgin martini is not a bad place to start.

    One place you missed is
    Malo Restaurant
    4326 Sunset Blvd.
    323.664.1011
    www.malorestaurant.com

    If you come in and have any questions ask for me, Mateo. Currently I have over 140 100% blue agave tequilas and 25 mezcals.
    I have tasted every bottle behind the bar and just finished my latest tequila menu. Our website should be up to date by June with a about 10 new tequilas and I have taken about 8 off. Everything behind the bar is 100% blue agave and I have plenty of deals made with the producers to keep the prices low on many of my favorites.

    p.s. If only I could find my all time favorite Arette Suave 'gran classe'. I just sold my last shot last night! If anyone knows how I can come across a bottle that would be great.

    I will definitely come in the next time I am in the LA area. Thanks for the heads up. It will be my first stop.

    The Spanish Kitchen is on La Cienega, not Cahuenga.

    I'm going to try and drop by Malo this Friday. I'll ask if you are around, Mateo. Looks like I may have to stick to regular Anejos though. Your HSS is a little pricey.

    Menu looks good.

    Today after some research (thanks to El Tesoro site) I found a gem of a wine and spirit store on the Glendale/Atwater border.

    Topline Wine & Spirit CO
    4718 San Fernando Road, Glendale, CA 91204
    (81 500-9670

    El Tesoro Platinum for 39 bux
    Penca Azul Blanco for 49 bux (750 ml!)
    7 Leguas for 38 bux

    Its not a typical liquor store, its in an industrial park without much fanfare, I passed it twice before seeing.

    there selection is no comparison to Ramirez, but they have a great top shelf tequila selection, Don Valente Licorice line, 7 Leguas, Purasangre, just to name a few. What Im saying is they dont carry the crappy lines. About 30 different lines of all the good stuff at good prices.

    Anyway, I bought the Penca Azul blanco, it put me over budget, but they have great prices.
