SAN ANTONIO – Mi Tierra is trying to console San Antonio by selling “Fiesta Survival Kits” after the city’s biggest party was postponed due to the coronavirus crisis.

With Fiesta postponed to Nov. 5-15, La Familia Cortez Restaurants is offering meals at a time when the city would normally be preparing for the 11-day, citywide party.

“The phrase ‘Fiesta responsibly’ has taken on a whole new meaning this year,” the restaurant group said in a news release. “Fiesta may be postponed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have your own quarantine fiesta with your familia.”

Two options are priced at $70 and $75, and include 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 on for $20-$55.

Orders for Fiesta kits must be placed online 24 hours in advance. Meals can be picked up at Mi Tierra in Market Square.
