This past Friday, the cast and crew of The Phantom of the Opera, plus friends of Las Casas gathered at Lüke San Antonio for an evening of great food, libations and cheer, as we welcomed (and in a couple of cases, welcomed home) the cast and crew of this spectacular production.

Guests feasted on a variety of spectacular dishes prepared by Lüke San Antonio’s Executive Chef John Russ, including a roasted pumpkin salad prepared with feta and peppers, fresh farmer’s market vegetables, shrimp creole with popcorn rice, roasted chicken with brabant potatoes, bread pudding with candied pecans, and more!

Party guests suffered from no shortage of libations, with a variety of brews provided by Alamo Beer, including their Golden Ale, German Pale Ale, Pilsner and Amber Lager. Red and white wine was also available to guests compliments of Glazer’s, along with a delicious signature cocktail made with Alberta Rye Whisky.

Along with a uniquely San Antonio Fiesta-themed photo booth (find those photos on our Facebook page), guests also enjoyed a sweet treat — perfectly designed Phantom cookies, courtesy of Sandra Trevino!

Las Casas Board President Kevin Parman officially welcomed the group, including 2010 Joci Awards winner and native San Antonian, Storm Lineberger, who is currently playing the role of Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny.

A special thank you to all who joined us and all those who made the evening so spectacular, including Lüke San Antonio (Chef John Russ, Cathy Bartlett, Jenavy Escobedo and their entire staff), Alamo Beer (Zac Harris), Glazer’s (Shaun Tapia and Monica Snyder), Alberta Rye Whisky, Sandra Trevino, and our volunteers, who made everything run so smoothly.
