A drink for Livestrong

What is the official drink of the Austin Livestrong Challenge? There is one way for you to find out. Make a donation to my Livestrong campaign benefiting the Lance Armstrong Foundation and I’ll invite you to my bad-ass house party on Saturday, September 25 to thank you for your generous contribution to the fight against cancer.

The good folks at Treaty Oak Rum and Graham’s Texas Tea are donating their fantastic hooch and suggesting some fantastic cocktail recipes. I’m accepting donations from all other producers and distributors, so don’t be shy. Regardless of donations, there will be plenty of delicious drinks for you to choose from.

To keep you thirsty, we have the incredible DJ, el john Selector, of Thievery Corporation fame spinnin mind-melt-booty-rock. He will definitely keep your ass shakin. Check him out serving as the conguerro in this Thievery video.

Bottom line: this will be a ridiculously fun party and it supports a very important cause. Make a donation and get an invitation.
