In an effort to provide alternative food and drink dinners, Executive
Chef Damien Giliberti and team are creating a Cinco No Drinko fest on
May 5 by the firepits at The Goodland (5650 Calle Real, Goleta;
964-6241). Along with four scrumptious courses of food — think cilantro,
hibiscus, and white tortillas to honor the Mexican flag as well as lamb
barbacoa tacos — the evening will feature a series of nonalcoholic
cocktails (including a mole with corn and a hibiscus with coconut milk),
and then a star of the current menu, the Tipsy Turvy.
