Hello, cool weather! After a piping hot summer, we’re happy to announce People’s Cocktail is making its fall debut on Wednesday, October 9th from 5pm-8pm. In case you’ve never heard of our People’s Cocktail event, it goes like this: each of our bartenders makes a featured drink and picks a favorite charity. You, the people, come to drink, and we will donate the proceeds of the featured cocktails to the charity picked by the bartender with the most popular drink. That’s right, every drink you order equals one vote for that bartender’s charity.
In addition, we like to partner up with another badass chef or food business in our community to share snacks that further the fundraising efforts for the winning cause.
We’re super excited to welcome Angela Salamanca and Marshall Davis (of Centro and Gallo Pelon fame), who are partnering together to open a taqueria called Ex Voto in Durham. They’ll be featuring a sneak peek menu from Ex Voto that showcases their from-scratch corn tortillas. What’s on the menu for People’s Cocktail? Think roasted chicken and fried plaintain quesadillas; cochinita pibil tacos; and huitlacoche and mushroom rillette sopes.
And while usually we vote on the winning charity, this time around all proceeds will go toward relief for the people of the Bahamas, who suffered devastating loss from the most recent hurricane.
An abundance of unique cocktails, a charitable cause and TACOS?! Who can say no to that?! Mark your calendars, bring your friends, and RSVP here.
