Our poor world right now. I know we have all been feeling powerless watching the horrific aftermath of all these disasters recently. So much suffering and loss. So let’s do something! After the most recent quakes in Mexico, I partnered up with the wonderful folks at Cambria Gallery in SoMa to hold a happy hour-style fundraiser, SF ❤️ MX, serving bites and drinks for Mexico earthquake relief on Friday October 13th.
There will be bites from Loló (taco tropical), Sal de Vida Gourmet (cochinita pibil mini tostadas with pickled onions), Copita (ceviche), Don Pistos (tamales and albondigas), WesBurger ‘N’ More (queso), and others, including Green Chile Kitchen.
If you can contribute food, please get in touch! And we still don’t have anything sweet! Thank you to everyone who is so generously providing food for the event.
The bar will be shakin’ with fantastic cocktails courtesy of Rye on the Road and El Techo, featuring top spirits from Campari America/Espolòn Tequila, Milagro Tequila, Montelobos Mezcal, and Ancho Reyes, plus cervezas generously provided by Cadillac Bar & Grill and Hard Frescos (they are a new brand making cold-fermented aguas frescas!).
We also have a fantastic silent auction taking shape, with gift certificates and more (thanks to Nopa, Nopalito, Flores, Uno Dos Tacos y Tequila, Campari America, Ginger Rubio Salon, and Joanne Weir/Copita)!
We are accepting donations of any kind to help with this event, from dropping off a dish to being there to serve your dish to silent auction items—everything and anything would help! We really need wine donations! And we’d love to have live music.
We need volunteers to help serve food, experienced folks to shake and pour batched cocktails behind the bar, and a few general helpers! Please get in touch if you can help!
This event will be a 100% donation to Omaze and Ambulante’s fundraiser, helping Mexico rebuild.
Tickets are on a sliding scale ($35-$150+), all we ask is you please pay what you can afford to donate, gracias. Most importantly, we just want you there!
Even if you can’t attend, if you can please help spread the word, we’d so appreciate it. Here is the event on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Thanks for liking and sharing!
And here is the event flyer you can link to, download, and share! (And here is a version in Spanish!)
Another way you can help: we are processing our tickets with Square, which kindly gifted our Mexico fundraiser with no processing fees for $750 of transactions, but that’s going to disappear quickly. If you can please sign up for a Square account (it’s free!), we will get $1,000 of free ticket processing! And so will you. :) Which means every cent that is spent on tickets will go to Mexico. Gracias!
See you on Friday October 13th! 6:30pm-9pm. 21 and over. Cambria showroom, 1045 Bryant St. between 8th and 9th streets.
