Drinking Tequila for a Good Cause

Jack Allen's Kitchen hosts fundraiser

Great Tequilas, inventive food, and hand-rolled cigars: what’s not to like? That was the scene at Jack Allen’s Oak Hill during the annual benefit for the Lone Star Paralysis Foundation.

At an event billed as a “Tequila Bash,” dozens of folks ponied up $150 each to benefit the programs of the Lone Star Paralysis Foundation. The reward, the opportunity to smoke hand-rolled cigars and taste foods from both Jack Allen’s Kitchens, Cover 2, Cover 3, and Barley Swine, as well as premium tequilas from Ambhar, Dulce Vida, Patron, Pepe Z, and Republic.
