WHO: Jack Daniels and Jet-Setter owners Benjamin Krick and Lucas Bradbury are bringing Pontiac’s co-owner and “Queen of the Bar,” Beckaly Franks, along with her assistant Arlene Wong to San Antonio for one night only. These fun-loving females will be traveling thousands of miles to serve up their special blend of sass and sophistication along with a special selection of Jack Daniels based cocktails.
Guests will enjoy music from D.J. Jarvis, Asian-inspired nibbles from local food truck Sichuan House, and drinks served up with plenty of Pontiac’s popular panache. It’s an event unlike any other and an opportunity to experience world-class Asian flavor and flare, without having to bring your passport.
