A few weeks ago, we were invited to an event called Veuve Clicquot Urbane, which consists of bringing their champagne to the most “IN” and trendy places around the city. It’s a new concept developed here in Puerto Rico by the Veuve Clicquot company that will be done globally. Cristy couldn’t make it so I invited Andrea Devoto from Andrea’s Devotion instead. The event was held at one of my favorite places here in PR called Arquetipo. I once went to a Vanidades’ party there a few years ago and I fell in love with the place. Andrea and I had the privilege of meeting one of the owners of Arquetipo, Emilio Olabarrieta, and he had the best opening line ever: “Hi, welcome to my office!”.
During the event, we were heading back and forth from the Champagne Bar to the Rolling Diner. At the bar they had three different cocktails all made with Veuve Clicquot Champagne, obviously. We made it our mission to try all three of them. The first one and my personal favorite was “Simply the best” which had Veuve Clicquot Brut with strawberries puree, vanilla extract and fresh lemon juice. It was so good. The other two were “Clicquot Mint Lavender” which had Veuve Clicquot with fresh lemon juice, lavender syrup and mint, and “Veuvellini” which had the Veuve Clicquot Brut with peach vodka and peach puree. Outside was the Rolling Diner (winner of the Moet Hennessy Sales Innovation Award 2014), where Chef Peter Bouchard was served a slew of delicious stuff. It was a good night, indeed.
Outside of Arquetipo. All the decorations were mustard, I repeat, MUSTARD (In case you didn’t know, I love all things mustard).

Andrea wearing a skirt she made herself, isn’t it cute?

The artist Gloso Nieto worked on two paintings during the whole event. Cool, right?

If I’m not mistaken these were the “Clicquot Mint Lavander”.
Cristy said this was one of her favorite pictures. She called it “The Half JOSANNA.”
For the lips I’m wearing Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Mischievous shade.

Here I am with Charlotte Pabon who invited me to the event and Emilio Olabarrieta one of the owners of Arquetipo.

Here is the Holy Menu from the Rolling Diner. I got a taste of the cheese balls with guava sauce. Delicious.
