Maestro Dobel Legacy Series Dinner at Pershing

Jun 12 2019

On Wednesday, June 12th, The Supper Club hosted members to a Maestro Dobel Legacy Series Dinner at the private eastside club Pershing. The property spans five buildings, comprising what used to be the Austin Lumber & Mill yard from the 1940’s. Greeted with custom cocktails, members entered the Gallery room, which has been repurposed from its origins as a lumber shed to a vibrant, revitalized space channeling Moroccan vibes and bohemian luxury. As guests settled into their seats, the family style dinner by Pershing’s own Chef Andrew kicked off with hand-selected East Coast oysters.

Whilst sipping tequila expressions from Maestro Dobel, members listened to an intimate Q&A between the guest of honor, muralist and filmmaker Ernesto Hernandez and Sarah Sperling. Raised in a border town, Ernesto shared his unique perspective on what it means to be of Hispanic descent in Texas. He spoke to how this view point continues to inspire not only his many art forms, but also his everyday life.

After dinner, guests chatted with one another over dessert and espresso anejo old fashioned cocktails while listening or dancing to the live jazz performance. Before the night came to an end, guests moved the party into the original 1940’s residence. Spanning three floors, this private, whimsical haven was the perfect setting for the creative festivities.

This soiree was all about flavor—the flavor of spirit, art, food, and life.
