The LA Film Festival had a great turnout Friday and Saturday nights, with a never ending supply of Leblon Caipirinhas!
LA Film Festival goers flooded the live.create lounge when it opened on June 18th, and could not get enough of our sweet and sour Brazilian Cocktail. The smell of fresh crushed limes enticed the crowd, while the sweet taste forced them to come back for seconds and thirds!
Several bands played throughout the day for a fun break in between viewing films at the festival. Guests came from all over to enjoy amazing company, play word games on the wall, paint art on the community canvasses, and to drink fresh Leblon Caipirinhas.

Saturday, June 19th, featured the Film Maker’s opening party and drinks were flowing starting at 5:00 P.M. Word had spread throughout the festival, and fans were now coming up to request the “Brazilian Margarita” they heard so much about! Brazilians in the crowd were enticing strangers to try out the popular drink. Everyone enjoyed the band Fishbone, who performed late into the night. The fun lasted until 2:00 A.M. with our bartenders serving Leblon Caipirinhas for 8 hours straight! With such a great response from everyone there, it was a great opportunity to get the word out with our Legalize Cachaça movement!

Tyson Beckford was enjoying the nice New York City weather, Brazil winning their World Cup game, and his new gang of Leblonettes! The Leblon Cachaça Girls, also known as the beautiful Brazilian Leblonettes, led by Vitoria Caipirinha, were out all day rooting for Brazil and kept on running into the equally gorgeous model and actor Tyson Beckford. They first met outside the Via Dei Mille Restaurant and then bumped into the girls again at Sushi Samba. I guess he couldn’t get enough of the hot Brazilian spirit! They were drinking Leblon Caipirinhas, Brazilian’s national cocktail, and partying all day long! Live Love Leblon! GO BRAZIL!
