Last weekend, Patrón hosted a shoppable pop-up experience named Residencia Patrón in Chelsea at Studio 525. There to celebrate Mexican culture, particularly from Mexico City, artists, fashion designers, perfumers, interior designers, and more—like Aurelia, Cynthia Buttenklepper, Perla Valtierra, Xinú, and Caralarga—featured for-sale designs alongside available cocktails by the mixologist Eli Martinez of Tlecan Mezcaleria and music by DJs Damián Romero and Rodrigo Madrazo. To kick things off, a private dinner was hosted by Revista 192 magazine’s co-founders, Fabiola Zamora and Danaé Salazar, featuring delectable bites by Chef Jair Téllez of MeroToro, a special live dance choreographed by Diego Vega Solorza, and a vocal performance by Silvana Estrada.

Also throughout last weekend in the Hamptons, the inaugural NF NFT weekend kicked off in Greenport at Sound View. Named after an abbreviation of its host region, the North Fork, and the evolving NFT world, the weekend brought together artists, collectors, gallerists, scholars, journalists, and more to learn about the industry’s growth. Anchored by panels, dinners, and seaside culture tours—of Greenport distilleries, galleries, restaurants, shops, and more—the weekend informed guests of how-to metaverse basics—like onboarding metawallets, using cryptocurrency, and minting NFTs—saw visitors like Charlotte Kent, Brendan Fernandes, Wen Zhou, Kelly LeValley Hunt, Michael Kriak, Jonathan Rosen, Matthew Schapiro from imnotArt Chicago NFT Gallery, and Whitewall’s senior editor, Eliza Jordan.

On Tuesday at the Whitney Museum of American Art, we celebrated the return of the museum’s Biennial, which opens to the public on April 6. Entitled “Quiet As It’s Kept,” curated by David Breslin and Adrienne Edwards and featuring the work of 63 artists, the show was celebrated by tequila company partner Casa Dragones, as well as guests from the art, fashion, design, and cultural worlds. Visitors—including Alex Da Corte, Jonathan Berger, Nayland Blake, Telfar Clemens, Minka Kelly, and Flea—flowed through the floor-level space with cocktails in hand before venturing upstairs to explore exhibitions on view—and even the assemblage of some Biennial installations.

That night, but uptown at The Times Square EDITION, El Museo del Barrio held its inaugural spring fundraising benefit. With cocktails provided by Dobel Tequila and RG/NY, the night hosted guests like Anna Wintour, Lauren Santo Domingo, and Lineisy Montero Feliz who celebrated honorees Willy Chavarria and Karla Martinez de Salas, and enjoyed music by DJ Christian Martir and a live performance by Yendry.

On Wednesday night at Lola Taverna, God’s Love We Deliver hosted a dinner to celebrate the launch of a new Lingua Franca cashmere sweater. With all proceeds donated to the food charity organization, the new fair trade style features “Lola” stitched in cursive on its front. There to toast to its launch were friends of the brands, as well as industry insiders—including Jennifer Fisher, Dorinda Medley, and Rajni Jacques—who learned more of the company’s growing mission and ongoing efforts to provide food for those in need. “Food is not a luxury, it’s a necessity,” said Cobi Levy, Lola Taverna’s co-owner. “God’s Love We Deliver brings this to New York’s most vulnerable and we all benefit. It’s an honor to support their endeavors.
