Tequila Casa Dragones was proud to support the 2016 Ballroom Marfa Gala hosted by co-Founders Fairfax Dorn and Virginia Lebermann and presented by Roberto Cavalli in New York City. Over 250 guests were invited for a Desert Bohemian themed evening to honor both David Byrne and Jill Soloway for an inaugural Off the Grid Award.
Guests were welcomed with an all female Mariachi-band and a distinct Tequila Casa Dragones bar serving signature craft cocktails made with Casa Dragones Blanco. Casa Dragones served a modern twisted margarita entitled “Dama del Baile”. Also, the NoMad Hotel’s multi-award winning bar director & mixologist Leo Robitschek’s “Dragon Sparkler” creation for a more seasonal offering.
Throughout cocktail hour, guests enjoyed the exclusively crafted cocktails featuring Casa Dragones Blanco and the art that was up for silent auction, including a piece by Donald Judd Furniture entitled, ‘Corner Chair.” Rashid Johnson created work specifically for for the occasion.
Guests later sat for dinner and enjoyed music by San Antonio’s all female mariachi band, Las Altenas, along with legendary artist and songwriter, Terry Allen. Some of the evening’s attendees included Arden Wohl, Malu Byrne, Sandra Bernhard and Judd Foundation President, Rainer Judd.
All proceedings from the night support the ongoing programs provided by Ballroom Marfa in an effort to continue to produce extraordinary artistic works by participating artists and musicians.
