In September of 2006, Joanne Weir started talking about tequila. She was delighted to learn that, like her, many women don't just like tequila, they love it: They savor it with meals; drink it slowly from a snifter; and mix it with seasonal ingredients in experimental cocktails. Fueled by this realization, Weir created Agave Girls- to help these women share their enthusiasm for fine tequila.
Get ready for our next Agave Girls gathering on Tuesday, December 6 - a special holiday celebration! Join the original Agave Girl Joanne Weir, PBS Chef, author of Kitchen Gypsy: Recipes and Stories from a Lifelong Romance with Food and Tequila: A Guide to Types, Flights, Cocktails and Bites, for an incredible evening of tequila, tasting and fun with Copita Tequileria y Comida. Enjoy passed appetizers and a tasting flight of tequila from our extraordinary sponsor Clase Azul, followed by a three course dinner paired with tequila cocktails.
To add some silly fun, we're encouraging an "ugly poncho" theme and the attendee with the ugliest poncho will be awarded a bottle of tequila from the producer and a copy of Joanne's latest cookbook. Come on, don't be shy! This will be fun.
To make the event extra special, Tequila Clase Azul will be featuring their limited, special edition, pink bottle which debuted this month. A percentage of the proceeds from this event will go towards supporting Grupo de Recuperacion Total Reto, a non-profit organization that covers breast cancer screening and services for Mexican women in need. To join in the holiday spirit of giving, Copita will also be donating 10% of proceeds to La Casa de Las Madres, which offers emergency shelter to Bay Area women of domestic violence and their children while providing advocacy, counseling, family-based services and referrals.
Debuted in 2006, a decade later Joanne Weir's Agave Girls offers women a celebratory environment to enjoy and appreciate the flavor and history of tequila. Don't miss out!
