Mexican restaurant Fonda Lola is turning one this week, and it’s celebrating the occasion with a rowdy, tequila-fueled piñata smash-a-thon. Starting at noon on Friday, November 28, and happening every hour on the hour until midnight, the restaurant will be hanging up papier-mâché containers full of treats and letting people pummel them with sticks. They’re also giving away some free stuff, like tequila samples at 4 p.m. and “hand-held caesar salads” at noon and, provided you’ve bought a margarita, 5 p.m. (Picture a creamy bacon lettuce wrap—they’re highly recommended.) Oh, and there’s a chili pepper–eating contest, too, scheduled for 2 p.m.—because there’s no better time to excoriate the lining of your mouth than right in the middle of a regular workday.

Fri. Nov. 28, 12 a.m.-12 p.m., 942 Queen St. W., 647-706-9105 (text for reservations), fondalola.ca
