There is never a dull moment in Los Angeles, especially when there is a holiday taking place like Cinco De Mayo! There were an endless amount of exciting celebrations everywhere you turned and the whole area of Sunset Boulevard seemed like one big ‘ol party yesterday. One of the most phenomenal Cinco De Mayo celebrations definitely had to be the 14th Annual Celebrity Poker Tournament which took place on May 5, 2018 at the renowned Velvet Margarita Cantina. This remarkable event got everyone’s Cinco De Mayo spirits up and had everything and more that attendees could ask for – delicious food, yummy drinks and of course, a terrific game of poker for a great cause.
Celebrities who attended the sensational event were treated with scrumptious food from Velvet Margarita Cantina. From spectacular empanadas to excellent chips and guac, Velvet Margarita Cantina’s snacks definitely made everyone’s mouth water. Guests were also able to enjoy a crystal head vodka and tequila bar with drink options including pina xolada and many others. Talk about a great way to celebrate Cinco De Mayo! With its unique, gothic interior, the Velvet Margarita Cantina was the perfect place to host this awesome event.
The games begun with the special, celebrity poker tournament. All proceeds from the tournament were donated to the Friends of El Faro Mexican Orphanage. Not only was this brilliant event incredibly fun and fantastic for everyone who attended, but it also helped benefit a wonderful cause.
