The first thing John Bragg ever collected was rocks. But that's not the subject of his lecture tonight, which was organized by the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits. Nope. Instead museum officials were more interested in the 66-year-old's 427 different bottles of tequila. It's probably the world's largest collection of North America's first distilled spirit.

The chewy chips at Más Malo will ruin your appetite if you're not careful. Eat one and the blind flirtation of grease and salt on your tongue will cause you to reach for another, and then another. And before you know it you will become a mindless hand-to-basket-to-mouth machine, dipping these intentionally crunchless, deep-fried curiosities into the pillowy depths of the restaurant's housemade guacamole and through the fiery landscape of its five-part salsa flight. That's warning No. 1. Warning No. 2: The cocktails, agave-laced tributes to punk rock aesthetics, will quickly put you down for the count, so stick with two — three, at most.

Tequila isn't in an exclusive relationship with sweet-and-sour mix. No, the margarita does not own its tempting agave heart. The spirit lends itself nicely to a variety of other mixers, including hibiscus juice. It lovingly cohabitates with this ruby-colored nectar in a cocktail called Angelina at Mas Malo in downtown Los Angeles. Made from the flower of the same name, the juice's flavor is soft and sweet. The addition of hibiscus-infused tequila, a hint of simple syrup and the tart tang of lime makes the drink as addictive as a kiss.
