• J-Wall Drops a Latin Mix to Honor sweetgreen’s Toro Bowl

    The folks at sweetgreen are partnering with Boston-based restaurateur Ken Oringer on the “Toro Bowl.” Knowing Oringer’s impressively delicious track record (heavy-hitters like Toro, Coppa, & Little Donkey), it’s safe to say this will be a winner.

    I was beyond excited to spin the launch event in early April at sweetgreen’s Ink Block location, so I put together a mix for all y’all to enjoy. It seems like a Spanish/Latin vibe would be appropriate for the occasion. Here are some of the tracks I’ve been messing around with in that world (check out the full track-list below). The Whiskey Barons really come in handy in times like these!
