Special connections were made between the Gallery’s House Artists and guests. Other special connections were made between guests throughout the evening as well.
Consistent with the theme of the event, some of the best up-and-coming food and drink businesses in town teamed up with San Clemente Lifestyle Magazine to showcase their fantastic culinary concoctions. Drift Distillery and KonaRed collaborated on a vodka/coffeeberry juice drink called “Red Tide”, while Lost Winds Brewery offered one of their signatures beers, “TropiClemente.” Also on offer were both sweet and savory pies by Blackbird Artisan Pies, as well as a delectable charcuterie spread compliments of San Clemente Lifestyle Magazine.
Music was provided by a local band called The Justins. The band created a fun and classy musical ambiance for the event.
