DeVonn Francis's ideal dinner guests, illustrated by Danielle Kosann
DeVonn Francis Answers the DADA 5
1. If you could have dinner with 5 people (alive, not alive, fictional) who would they be?
Bayard Rustin, Viola Davis, Grace Jones, Storm from X-men, and Angela Bassett’s character in American Horror Story: Coven.
2. Where would it be?
Dinner would be at my mom’s house. We’re currently turning the garden into the perfect outdoor entertainment space and I love the idea of bringing people I admire to my hometown versus some high profile place.
3. And what would be a Symbol of a very good night?
When people come up to me at the end of the night and say that they’ve made a new friend, work connection or connection to themselves. That and if all the dishes are miraculously clean without me having to clean them!
4. What's your go-to dinner party outfit?
Right now, I really wanna be dressed in whatever Barragán, Theophilio or Y-Project is making.
5. What's your go-to make-at-home cocktail?
I love a classic Negroni but swap the Campari for Cardamaro. It's the perfect after-work cocktail for me.
