We’re fans of Patrón Tequila, and not just because they’re responsible for one of the smoothest tequila shots in the land. We’ve also grown to admire their ability to throw the most awesome secret parties — they’re like part pop-up dinner, part boozy bacchanal — that we’ve been fortunate enough to attend. The Patrón Secret Dining Society is a series of special events featuring top chefs and mixologists, where dishes are paired with bespoke Patrón cocktails. But these events aren’t ticketed. You can’t drop a couple benjamins for a seat at the table. You have to earn your spot.
It starts on Tuesday April 23, when Patrón announces the next city they will be traveling to. Once the city is revealed, you will be asked to answer a trivia question in order to be in the running to attend. We swear the question won’t be too difficult. Past chefs have included Food Republic co-founder Marcus Samuelsson and acclaimed Chicago chef Rick Bayless. So it basically means some heavy hitters, cooking privately for you, with a lot of free cocktails to go along with your meal.
But first, and this is essential, you must sign up as a member of the Patrón Social Club. It takes two minutes. Good luck, and see you at the bar.
