Last night I attended the El Jimador Tequila party held in South Melbourne at St Ali’s. Pictured above is my boyfriend Chase (first photo) and my pal Nick (4th photo). Apologies also for the unartistic photography.
It was a Mexican-themed event, not in terms of tacos, sombreros and poncho-wearing guitarists, much to Chase’s disappointment, but rather Mexico’s highest selling tequila brand and 6 of their country’s creatives (artists and musicians) showing us what Mexico City is all about.
Copious amounts of tequila cocktails were drunk. I mean copious. 80’s “hi-nrg” band Trans-X (Canadian, but apparently now based in Mexico) performed a hi-nrg set. We danced about the fairy floss art installation & I awoke this morning to find my shoes covered in pink and blue melted sugar.
Here is our drink order.
Chase & I and Andy Warhol. I mean, sorry, the singer from Trans-X.
Mexican has long been my favourite type of cuisine and now I think it may be my favourite type of alcohol too. And perhaps favourite type of hi-nrg 80’s synth electro pop.
