One Day Only: Chef Bruce Rickets Is Cooking Mexican Food at Mecha Uma This Thursday We've got the menu right here!

Psst. Chef Bruce Ricketts is cooking up a storm of Mexican food at Mecha Uma this Thursday, and this Thursday only. June 25, from 4 p.m. till supplies last. Called La Chinesca (follow them on Instagram @lachinesca), the one-day food event promises to be chill, fun and laidback. You can either grab tacos and go, or stay and hang, said Preview's Jae Pickrell (Ricketts' main squeeze). "Bruce's first love is Mexican food, so it's like he's going back to his roots," she told Style Bible.

Check out the menu below!
