In a glittering display of silver and gold ensembles, more than 550 Bay Area young professionals experienced Teotihuacan: City of Water, City of Fire. DJ Matt Haze set the mood of the evening with pan-Latin folktronics, hip-hop, and reggaeton while guests enjoyed tequila and mezcal tastings from event partners Espolón Tequila and Kimo Sabe Mezcal. Guests posed at a photobooth courtesy of presenting sponsor Alaska Airlines and enjoyed beer from local craft beer company, Anchor Brewing. The highlight of the evening was an exhilarating performance of Aztec dance by Tezkatlipoka Aztec Dance & Drum which brought spirited dance and pounding drums to the de Young’s courtyard, and was a whirl of rituals, history, and tradition.
