Friday, June 19
6 - 10 p.m. 

Bon Voyage

Embark on a B scene voyage! Picture yourself as a mid-Nineteenth Century traveler accompanying Impressionist painter Francisco Oller back to his homeland in Puerto Rico. You’ll arrive in the diverse and lively city of San Juan pulsing with rhythms from across the Caribbean. KUTX’s Michael Crockett, (host of radio show Horizontes and Global Grooves) will be your musical guide.

Experience the impressive dance oriented repertoire of La Moña Loca, one of Austin’s newest and most exciting salsa orchestras! In between acts, Go Dance will host salsa demonstrations and offer dance instruction.

Austin’s own Tamale Addiction will be selling their delicious organic Chiapaneco tamales!

Blanton members will enjoy an exclusive outdoor member lounge with complementary silhouette portraiture by world-renowned silhouette artist Cindi Harwood Rose, who will demonstrate the fine art of silhouette portraiture—just as it would have been done in the lifetime of Franciso Oller. Officially documented as the world’s fastest silhouette artist, the beauty and accuracy of her work is also unsurpassed.

JuJu Juice creates handcrafted and cold pressed juices, smoothies, cleanses, nutmilks, superfood bowls, shots and more; with local, organic fruits and veggies for eating healthy, delicious and clean in Austin, Texas. They will be on hand in the member lounge with free samples of signature smoothies and agua frescos!
