Tomorrow night, Jonathan Gold and Cedd Moses’s 213 will team together again to raise funds for Zocalo Public Square. The $125-$185 tickets grant access to an endless supply of five meticulously engineered, history-referencing, hand-crafted cocktails from Moses’ white hot venues, as well as tastings from nine of some of the city’s best chefs. PaQui silver tequila with fresh juiced jalapenos and sal de gusano will flow from Las Perlas, Seven Grand will pour highballs using 12-years-aged Chivas, and John Sedlar will prepare both Pre and Post-Columbian gazapacho, among the many highlights. So what else will be served on Saturday night at this Prohibition-style soiree at Union Station? Take a look below to see the full chef lineup, plus the cocktail and food tastings being planned for tomorrow. Tickets are still available online and the party gets started at 7:00 P.M.
