As Lucky Luna bids adieu to spring, we wanted to share some of the activities and dishes we have enjoyed since our last update.
Negroni Week was a lot of fun as we celebrated this classic cocktail and did a slew of original variations (a new one each day) all in the name of charity. Check out our takes below:
Hop Fresh House Hop-infused Gin, London Dry Gin, Campari, Sweet Vermouth and Branca Menta
The Rossellini Dry Sherry, Gin, Campari, Sweet Vermouth and Dry Vermouth
Rum and Rye Roni Smith & Cross Jamaican Overproof Rum, Rye, Campari, Sweet Vermouth and Chocolate Bitters
Agave Garden Mezcal, Cocchi Americano, Cynar, Aperol, Campari and Angostura Bitters
Poblano Rojo Gin, Campari, Ancho Chili Liquor, Cynar and Orange Bitters
The Managua Rum, Dry Vermouth, Velvet Falernum, Campari
A solid week of classics and original variations brought in a humble donation to Safe Horizon.
And in accordance to our philosophy of consistently finding ways to create and engage the community in arts and services, not just through delicious food and drink, Lucky Luna hosted its first Ladies Swap Meet! Participants brought in choice items such as clothing, art, books, shoes and more to trade, swap and just give away to other attendees. The only rule was that items could not be exchanged for money, only other goods or services. New friendships were formed over piles of clothes, cocktails, and laughter.
Lucky Luna also has been working diligently on setting up our Take-Out Window!
Markers made for windows are amazing! Take-out Window is LIVE!!
