Drake celebrated his 37th birthday on Monday in the company of his inner circle and an abundance of alcohol at Casadonna, a newly opened exclusive venue in Miami.
Internal sources revealed that Drake, the star of the night, spent most of the evening downing shots of tequila. Additionally, leaked videos from the party revealed that Breaking Bad actors Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston joined the celebration by serving shots of their Dos Hombres mezcal at the rapper's bar.
Aaron and Bryan donned Hawaiian-style shirts while serving the drinks, but the younger of the duo decided to add a slightly more formal touch to his appearance and sported a red blazer over his shirt. The brand created by Aaron and Bryan emerged in 2019, six years after Breaking Bad aired its final episode. In a statement, Cranston explained the reason behind creating their own mezcal brand with his dear friend.
"We were drinking our cocktails and brainstorming on what project it could be. Then Aaron (the younger one) looked at his drink and said, 'You know what we should do? We should make a special mezcal.' The older one (me) said, 'You mean a drink with a worm at the bottom? Nah, that's a bullshit trick, I'm talking about real mezcal, handmade artisanal mezcal from Mexico.'"
The venue of Drake's celebration, inspired by Italy, is part of an endeavor by Groot Hospitality led by David Grutman and Tao Group Hospitality, headed by Noah Tepperberg and Jason Strauss. This gastronomic venture opened its doors with a star-studded party last Saturday, attended by personalities such as David and Victoria Beckham, Serena Williams, Camila Cabello, Liza Hochstien, Zac Effron, and DJ Khaled, among others.
Drake's birthday came shortly after the release of his album For All The Dogs on October 6th, which has been mired in controversy due to one of the songs on the album, "Fear of Heights", where the rapper appears to disparage his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, with whom he had a brief relationship in 2016 but had to separate due to conflicting schedules. Furthermore, Halle Berry publicly criticized Drake for trying to use her image without permission for the cover of his song Slime You Out.
