Tribeca 212 Celebrates San Antonio’s 300th with La Casa de Espana, Art & Sherry
Tribeca 212 and La Casa de Espana celebrate a special city milestone, San Antonio’s tricentennial, with awareness and appreciation of the city’s Spanish cultural heritage.
WHO: Tribeca 212 is a popular neighborhood restaurant and bar in Olmos Park that features New American cuisine, using ingredients that hearken back to San Antonio’s roots, which were established by the Canary Islanders of Spain.
La Casa de España promotes awareness, understanding and appreciation of the Spanish cultural heritage in San Antonio through conferences, concerts, theatre and art exhibits.
WHAT: Tribeca 212 will be partnering with La Casa de España on April 27th to host a truly unique celebration of San Antonio’s tricentennial by presenting a special dinner (menu below) featuring a photographic exhibition called “Life (visible and invisible) of Mary Higuero” and an exclusive sherry pairing presented by Virginia Miller (discoversherry.com), a Sherry Wine Educator who will be visiting from El Puerto de Santa Maria, (Cadiz) Spain. This special sherry presentation is to raise awareness of the incredible spectrum of flavors of sherry, which come from the Southern tip of Spain and are influenced by this beautiful region.
Restaurateur Rudy Souberbeille is excited to host the event at Tribeca 212. “As we have recently been incorporating more ingredients that are traditional to Spain and the Canary Islands, who helped to establish the city of San Antonio, we can’t think of a better way to truly celebrate San Antonio’s 300th birthday. We’re also thrilled to start offering these delicious different kinds of sherry at our restaurant.”
Attendants to the event will be awarded an honorary title as a Sherry “Ambassador.”
For more information on artist, Mary Higuero, please visit her website, view the video and see the attached PDF. Ms. Higuero is a talented and notable artist whose exhibit captures the experience of a craft in danger of becoming extinct. The theme of her photography is always love, where she tries to reflect the love through the images – in this case, the love of wine, which makes it the perfect accompaniment to this spectacular dinner.
