    Looking for a little more spice in your life? Literal spice?

    Head to Zocalo Plaza in Pilsen (18th Street and Paulina) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday for the inaugural Mole de Mayo Festival hosted by the Eighteenth Street Development Corporation.

    This festival is going to give the better known Cinco de Mayo festival a run for its money. Moles from neighborhood restaurants and caterers such as FIG Catering, Fogata Village, Mundial Cocina Mestiza, Zocalo and Nuevo Leon will be judged in a cook-off. 

    Master sommelier Alpana Singh of 'Check Please!' and the ''312 Dining Diva'' Audarshia Townsend are two of the esteemed judges. 

    Enjoy entertainment by the Lucha Libre wrestlers, Mariachi Nuevo Oro y Plato and Fandanguero.
