June 2016 Devine Color Cocktail Drink Menu

June 2016 Devine Color Cocktail Drink Menu

Devine Purple Drink Menu

I believe color is a super power! It enhances memory, mood, and optimism. Devine Color is proof. My colorful memories growing up Puerto Rico came to life through paint and changed how people in the Northwest saw and felt about color, forever.

Today I continue to use color as a super power. 

When my Puerto Rican grandmother had a stroke, she lost her memory. I realized the devastating results of memory loss and vowed to help other’s memories last a lifetime.  I became a Board Member of The Alzheimer's Association Oregon Chapter and plan "making endings as colorful as beginnings" until there is a cure.

This is why I asked Kent Lewis, owner of Uptown Billiards and Tavern On Kruse, to join me in celebrating and supporting Brain Awareness Month and The Alzheimer's Association Oregon Chapter, Puerto Rican style. For the month of June 2016, Tavern On Kruse will feature  a Divinely Purple Drink Menu  and portion of the proceeds will go to The Alzheimer's Association Oregon Chapter. All all Devine things coming up with the names was as fun as it looks! Oh yes, and we are having a TOTAL RECALL PARTY on June 18th if you want to come.

From the political angle, I’m trying to be apolitical if you will. I mean people say, ‘Are you a red state or blue state?’, I say, ‘I’m purple.’ I think there are great ideas on both sides of the aisle and neither side has cornered the market—Brad Thor

Devine Purple Haze

It comes down to reality
And it’s fine with me cause I’ve let it slide
I don’t care if it’s Chinatown or on Riverside
I don’t have any reasons
I left them all behind
I’m in a New York state of mind—Billy Joel
