On June 27-28, St. Bernard Project (SBP) invites Angelenos to board the Patrón Tequila Epicurean Express, enjoy gourmet cuisine and cocktails, and raise funds to assist the fishing community and other residents impacted by the Gulf oil disaster.

The Epicurean Express is a restored 1927 rail car (it reportedly inspired the House of Blues Foundation Room) traveling around the country to raise money and awareness on behalf of SBP.  In each of the five destination cities, SBP and The Patrón Spirits Company hosts a cocktail party and dinner with acclaimed local chefs. LA is the final stop, after visits earlier this month to Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and New Orleans. SBP’s goal is to raise $100,000.

The Los Angeles stop will take place over two nights: Sunday, June 27 and Monday, June 28. Sunday features an intimate gourmet dinner prepared by Susan Feniger (STREET), while Monday is a cocktail party featuring Feniger’s hors d’oeuvres. Both events will take place at Union Station in downtown LA.

For more information and to purchase tickets or make a donation, please visit the St. Bernard Project website.
