Los Angeles: Celebrating YOU 2022

Ilegal Mezcal is Celebrating YOU—calling to raise awareness as well as honor & showcase resilience, joy, & spirit in the queer community.

Participating locations are serving the Celebrating YOU cocktail with Ilegal Mezcal, with part of sales going to wayOUT: a non-profit organization that partners with local gender expansive LGBTQ+ programs across the US.

On May 15, 2022, 4100 Bar hosted a Los Angeles Celebrating YOU event, raising funds towards wayOUT. At the helm were 4100 Bar GM Erica Saturno, bar manager Rachel Babel, lead bartender Rory Mahon, and bar back Marley Jones.

The event was a collaboration between Ilegal Mezcal, 4100 Bar, and District Productions - Omar Rivas and Andy Garcia organized local 12 artisans, pulled in local traffic, and 4 bands with sounds to keep an amazing crowd of people from 5-midnight.

Ilegal Mezcal Celebrating YOU flash tattoos were provided by artist Fernando Garcia. A total of 76 Celebrating YOU cocktail were sold at the event, and the cocktail continues to be sold at the venue.
