In a whirlwind of excitment, Kendall Jenner arrived in Gainesville this past Wednesday night, turning heads and creating quite a buzz at three hotspots in this college town. The 28-year-old supermodel, also known for her reality TV stardom, played bartender for the evening, serving drinks and shots of her own tequila brand, 818, at multiple locations. Her stops included Gator Beverage, The Social at Midtown, and The Swamp Restaurant.
Gainesville was the latest stop on Jenner's college town promotional tour for 818 Tequila, following visits to the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama earlier this week. At each location, crowds went wild as Jenner mingled with fans, signed bottles, and posed for pictures.
Gator Beverage, located at 1126 W University Ave, witnessed a more intimate gathering, allowing many customers to interact with the celebrity. The Social at Midtown and The Swamp Restaurant, both charging a $20 cover, sold out their tickets as eager fans flocked to catch a glimpse of the model and enjoy the 818 experience. The atmosphere was electric, with UF students climbing on chairs and tables at The Social to get a closer look.
Kendal Jenner's 818 Tequila, launched in May 2021, focuses on sustainability and transparency, reflecting the brand's commitment to positive impacts on individuals, communities, and the environment. With the success of her college campus tour continuing, Jenner hints at more exciting stops in the future.
