El Portal 22nd Anniversary Fiesta flyer 390Celebrate one of Pasadena’s oldest and tastiest restaurants this weekend! El Portal is 22 and it’s time to celebrate!

“When I purchased El Portal 22 years ago, I thought that i would retire [by now] but I’m pleased and surprised to be going into [our] 23rd year…it’s the joy of serving guests that keeps me here,” said Abel Ramirez, owner of El Portal.

The extravaganza will kick off on Friday, March 31 and feature tequila tastings to live mariachi music and complimentary quesadillas. Sip some Azunia or Azul Imperial while rocking out to music by Maximo, Trio Madera and Angelito.

Ramirez adds that the patio is a popular spot to enjoy the California weather and gather with family and friends. Ramirez says that he’s pleased to see how many families and regulars visit El Portal. There will be pinatitas (small pinatas) for kids as well as plenty of tequila for the adults.

“It will be all party, party, party,” said Ramirez. “With Mexican parties we always have a start time but never an end,” he joked.

Toast to 22 years of success and enjoy a classic margarita or mojito. Grab some friends and join the fiesta this weekend!
