The First Lady of Tequila
It’s not your average tequila because it’s not made by your average tequila maker. We’re of course talkin’ about Bertha Gonzalez-Nieves, the co-founder and CEO of Casa Dragones tequila — you know, the small-batch tequila that’s so smooth Oprah called it “dangerous”? She’s the first woman ever (!) to be recognized as a “Maestra Tequilera” by the Academia Mexicana de Catadores de Tequila.
Join pineapple NY for a tequila tasting and chat with Bertha about her big-time biz and small-batch craft that bring Mexico’s terroir into the tasting room. Yana Volfson, the beverage director of ATLA and Cosme, will join the conversation and shake up some of her new Casa Dragones cocktails from ATLA's late night menu. Bites from ATLA will be provided by their exclusive delivery partner, Caviar.
Together we’ll explore what it’s like to be a female leader in male-dominated space, employ immigrants in today’s political climate, and maintain a craveable product while focusing on sustainability.
And remember the Casa Dragones golden rule: always sip – never shoot.

Food As Community
Food is a great activator for women to connect and share with each other and develop and hone our voice. Women increasingly express themselves through food and community -- whether that’s curating your kitchen supplies, having friends over for a home-cooked meal, starting your own food business, farming, or writing.
Join pineapple collaborative, newly launched in NYC, for a conversation celebrating and exploring the powerful intersection of women, food, and community- and movement-building in New York City.
Led by Alison Cayne, the founder of Haven’s Kitchen, a woman-owned cooking school and community rooted in the pleasure of cooking and eating, our panel will feature three NY-based leaders pioneering powerful food movements, Jessamyn Rodriguez, the founder and CEO of Hot Bread Kitchen, Sonya Kharas, the program manager at The League of Kitchens, and Erika A. Inwald, national coordinator of the Domestic Fair Trade Association.
Whether you’re looking to start your own movement or help us start ours, together we’ll address finding and sustaining motivation, empowering others and building community where it’s needed -- all with delicious eats from women-owned restaurants on Caviar, drinks from Ramona, & snacks from Haven's Kitchen- to fuel the convo.
