MALIBU RED and The Sunset Lounge partnered up to throw the largest Cinco De Mayo event in Atlanta. The event was titled “Sunset de Mayo” and was possibly considered the hottest Atlanta event of Spring 2013. The Sunset Lounge hosted over 1,500 guests at the Cantina located in the heart of Buckhead. Special guests included Hip-Hop artist Flo Rida, Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter/producer Raphael Saadiq, and many more. Party-goers were able to feast on authentic Mexican cuisine and sip on specialty MALIBU RED cocktails while dancing into the evening.
“Sunset de Mayo” was a cultural celebration, which displayed artwork from one of Atlanta’s entertainment industry’s most recognized personalities, FreddyO. Several of his painting celebrated images in African-American and Hispanic culture along with pieces celebrating Atlanta. He has achieved success as a photojournalist in Atlanta before returning to his one true love, art. “It was an honor for my work to be featured,” said FreddyO. “The Sunset Lounge is one of those events that everyone can come out and enjoy. It makes sense that celebrities come out because it’s a place they can celebrate with fans without being mobbed and even promote their work. It’s a different energy than a club and that’s refreshing.”
