How Dallas Does a Backyard Dinner Party

In partnership with our friends at COINTREAU LOGO Advertisement

We celebrated the opening of goop DALLAS—our second pop-up here—in a way that was as cool and welcoming as the store itself: with a backyard dinner party. Hosted by our friends Elisa and Stephen Summers, the balmy Texan afternoon started, naturally, with cocktails. (The Cointreau was in high demand: This year is the 70th Anniversary of the Original Margarita, a mix of Cointreau and tequila said to have been invented by Dallas socialite Margarita Sames.) We followed with three courses created by master chef Seamus Mullen, and finally dessert courtesy of Jeni Britton Bauer, of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream fame. You can see more of how we celebrate in the Lone Star State below. And if you’re in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by and see us at goop DALLAS—we’re open through June 3.
