Ever dreamed of drinking tequila from cups made from tequila? You’re in luck!
Liquor brand Jose Cuervo is bringing its traveling agave bar to Big Star’s Wicker Park location this Friday and Saturday. Filled with products made from 100% repurposed agave, sip on tequila cocktails at this sustainable-focused party.
Sustainable upgrades include cups and straws, which were fashioned from recycled agave fiber, AKA a byproduct of tequila production. The recipes work to incorporate ingredients that would’ve been tossed out. For example, the Matador uses leftover citrus peels and juices to make brown banana syrup and lime cordial. The Carajillo uses locally sourced coffee and already used grounds for the extra kick of caffeine.
With sustainable upgrades present, enjoy fresh bites from Chefs Juan Zaragoza, Bertha Garcia, and Clementina Flores. Of course, Ricardo Ramirez, Marco S. Tapia, and Chris Miller of Big Star fame will be lending a hand as well!
While you’re busy drinking and eating, enjoy DJ sets from Chicago artists Felix Da Housecat, Stefan Pounce, and other acts. Win prizes made from agave– like clothes, accessories, and even coasters.
The event starts at 3 PM and goes to 9 PM. Reserve your spot here.
Address: 1531 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
