Adam Levine, Superyachts & More: Galveston's Biggest Mardi Gras Bash Ever

TEXANS WERE READY to party Mardi in 2022. The Fertitta family’s 25th annual San Luis Salute was its most-attended ever, with 2,000 tickets purchased within just a couple hours — and that was before the announcement that Maroon 5 would be giving a private, hour-long performance at the gala.


The San Luis Salute kicked off with a pre-party on the pier where Tilman Feritta’s new superyacht is docked. Black-tie-clad VIPs sipped Veuve and Adam Levine’s tequila, Calirosa.

Under a chandelier-bedecked tent before making their way to the Galveston Island Convention Center for the main event.

The evening was French-kissed, with a “Cabaret in Paris” theme carried out by Richard Flowers and the Events Co.: Cocktail hour took place among an arrangement made to look like a Parisian street café, all set to a soundtrack of “La Vie en Rose.” And dinner — filet mignon au poivre, gruyere mashed potatoes — was preceded by a mouthwatering charcuterie spread, of course.

Then came the true crowd-pleaser: Maroon 5 took the stage for a full hour, cranking out hit after hit as revelers packed the dance floor.

Spotted at the Salute: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Neil and Maria Bush, UH’s Renu Khator, Dancie Ware, Frances Moody Buzbee and the whole Fertitta fam.
