Mexico on to the Round of 16

Even falling 3-0 to Sweden was not enough to hold back the Mexico National Team from advancing to the 2018 World Cup Round of 16.  Thanks to South Korea’s 2-0 win over defending 2014 World Cup Champions, Germany, Mexico will move from the Group Stage into the Round of 16, facing Brazil the morning of Monday, July 2nd.   Mexico will have to deliver strong defensive play in order to best Neymar and the rest of the Brazil National Team.

Lucky for us, we don’t have to worry about playing soccer next week.  The only hard part is deciding which cocktail to drink while watching the game.  We’ve taken care of that for you; grab some Tres Agaves Blanco Tequila and cocktail-ready Tres Agaves Agave Nectar and make your own Cowboy Coffee to get you in the zone for Mexico vs. Brazil.

Decisions Decisions

If you’re in one of the eight states that are holding elections today, we know you may have had to make some tough decisions. At Tres Agaves, we’re used to that. We frequently find ourselves wondering, should we make a Manhattan Mexicano with Tres Agaves Añejo Tequila, or a Paloma with Tres Agaves Reposado Tequila?

We know, we know, after all the thinking that goes in to voting in state and local elections, who has time to make another difficult choice? Luckily you have us here at Tres Agaves to help you out. The obvious choice is… well, we don’t know either. We just know that you can’t go wrong with either one.

So make yourself a cocktail and celebrate the fact that you don’t have to worry about voting for another four months. FOUR MONTHS?? How is that even possible? Maybe we’ll treat ourselves to two drinks tonight.

Notes & Words and Tres Agaves

Tres Agaves is proud to have extended its partnership with Notes & Words—a benefit to support UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Foundation—to five years. As is custom, Notes & Words boasted top-level talent with this year’s line up including Dave Grohl, George Saunders, Kelly Corrigan and more!

You can find links to the Dave Grohl’s performance (featuring a special guest!) here. Notes & Words are also close to their donation goal of two million dollars; if you’re able, please take a moment and donate and help them bring healthcare to children in the Bay Area and across the world.

In addition to the top-tier talent on stage, the Tres Agaves bar was full of superstars. We were pouring the classic lime Tres Agaves Margarita, the Tres Agaves Strawberry Margarita, and the Manhattan Mexicano. You’ll want to be sure to try those out for yourself next time you have a party.

Orange County BBQ & Music Festival 2012

For the past five years, The Kristie’s Foundation for Critically Ill Children have been throwing the OC County BBQ & Music Festival, transforming The Orange County Fairgrounds into a barbecue fiesta with a competitive barbecue competition, rib eating contest, “Mr BBQ” pageant, a fun kid zone, live music and entertainment such as: Sugar Ray and Kristie’s Celebrity Band! These past couple of years, Tres Agaves has supported this wonderful event by providing our signature Tres Agaves Margaritas & an entire branded stage for music acts to play on!

Here’s a message about this fundraising event from our great friends and supporters of Tres Agaves, Rich & Chase:

“Hi All,

We have been doing this event for several years and this time we brought out two [Tres Agaves] stages as they decided to do more of a music festival as well as the BBQ competition, Kids Zone, Car Show, and the Craft beer tasting (Something for everyone!).

Very family oriented event held  in Costa Mesa, CA with proceeds going to Kristies.org. They help families when children are near end of life due to cancer or other ailments. They won one of the 100 cars for good from Toyota just last week and chose a Prius, to keep costs down for the transportation of a nurse going to the homes of families in the Orange County area.

We provided Blanco and Mix for the VIP area and in the Green rooms for the bands for both days of the event. We had the Tres Agaves Stage in the BBQ area, used one of our tents for the FOH of the Main Stage (on the Green), and also another tent in the VIP area.”

Tres Agaves at the California Roots Music & Arts Festival 2012

Hola Amigos,

We here at Tres Agaves are already gearing up for another weekend of Tequila/Margarita fueled excitement, but we’d like to take the time to give you fine Tequila-loving folks a recap of the utterly amazing Memorial Day Weekend we had in the coastal town of Monterey, CA for the 3rd annual California Roots Music & Arts Festival. Below is a picture laced summary of what hilarious stuff went down in and around our booth that weekend.

Our booth to the right  was situated right next to the bars (I.E. easy access to all things Tequila). Being right next to the bar allowed us to talk to festival goers about our product and allowed them to join in on some engaging activities as well…

Such as our “Greetings from the town of Tequila” banner where people could dress up as jimadors, who harvest the agave plants for Tequila! Here’s a couple of our favorite pictures, the rest can be found at our Facebook page: Tres Agaves’ Facebook Page

Below is a picture of Jamie, our NorCal Market Manager, hanging out with J Boog after the first day of the Cali Roots festival.

The pictures below were our points of view throughout the festival. Notice the veil of “fog” over the masses.

Thanks again to all the people that stopped by our booth to hang out and chat with us! Hopefully we’ll see you next year for the 4th annual Cali Roots Festival!

 

Celebrating Día de los Muertos

This picture  was taken earlier today at La Calle, an Oakland Mexican restaurant that the Tres Agaves team frequents quite often for their delicious Mexican cuisine, more specifically their al pastor burrito gringo and carnitas tortas. The drawing on the upper right of this amazing collage is a print of the famous etching done by Jose Guadalupe Posada, entitled ‘La Calvera Catrina‘ or ‘The Elegant Skull’, from the year 1913.

Mariachi skeletons wishing you a festive Dia de los Muertos!

Uno + Dos + TRES = Perfecto!
