The Mole to Die For contest and tasting returns Wednesday to the Mission Cultural Center. Note the word "tasting": If you show up you'll be able to sample ― but not fill up on ― the complex sauce of many spices enshrined in Oaxaca. (A previous contest was the scene of a ruckus after it became clear some guests assumed a full meal would be offered.) You will get to vote with your mouth for your favorite(s), so enjoy the aromatic fun. For those who would like what organizers are calling "a more profound taste of Mexico," small plates of chicken in green mole will be offered. For a price.
