Dia de Muertos at Tres Agaves Restaurant in SF
In November of 2015, we put together our very first event at Tres Agaves Restaurant in SF. Dia de Muertos was the theme and felt extremely motivated due to the great turnout. This was such a fun and festive experience. Tequila Don Julio, Tequila Herradura, Tequila Jimador, Tequila Don Pilar and Tequila Corralejo all offered tastings that night. Casa de Chocolates brought exquisite chocolate bites and a chocolate caliente to pair with pan de muerto from Don Polvoron Bakery. Live mariachi played in the background as guests enjoyed the taco bar or sat down to get a calavera face painting. Marigolds and an altar de muertos added to the decorative vibes. Food, Art, Music and Tequila were all present! We were onto something amazing!!
Cultura en Pintura: Paint Night and Mexican Wine Tasting & Art Exhibit
Cultura en Pintura is a paint night with a Mexican twist and a dash of our special touch. Cultura en Pintura became a monthly small event in which we invited and honored an artist from our community or an artist from Mexico. The artist conducts the paint night and guides guests in creating their masterpieces. At this event, we also exhibit various artworks by the guest artists as a way for others to admire and original art pieces.
Mexican owned wineries are invited to the event to offer tastings of their exquisite wines. Cultura en Pintura offers a very tranquil and enjoyable atmosphere to enjoy with friends and family and to admire the talented artwork from professional artists.
VIVA FRIDA is a family friendly event where people can enjoy churros or tacos from vendors within our community. A place to listen to live mariachi, take part in a Frida look-alike contest or indulge in tequila and mezcal tastings. It's the perfect chance to obtain beautiful Frida artwork from talented artists as well as Frida inspired creations from over 35 vendors that come from all over California. It's a space where women wear flowers in their hair, rebozos around their arms and shade in their eyebrows a little darker to resemble and celebrate Frida and her Mexicanidad. VIVA FRIDA is full of passion, it's colorful, it's festive and so much more!
