Suck it Camarena Tequila taco truck and all you double-decker food buses out there, Patrón is barreling into town this weekend with its own tequila train! The company, in partnership with Louisiana’s Saint Bernard Project, is commandeering the 1927-era Epicurean Express for a two-night stop in Union Station this Sunday and Monday evenings to help raise money for fishing communities in the oil-ravaged Gulf. Want to get on board?
There are two events of differing cost and experience. Sunday’s is super exclusive, with a four-course dinner catered by Susan Feniger’s Street available for only 20 people at $500 a plate. Monday’s is more lenient though, with a cocktail party planned around Patrón’s cocktails and Street’s snacks from 6:30 to 9:30 P.M., along with an auction and train tour included for the $50 per person ticket price.
Not hungry or a fan of trains? You can still donate through Saint Bernard’s website, where party tickets are also sold.
Sunday and Monday nights at Union Station 800 N. Alameda St. Downtown.
