“5 de Mayo Mexican Party”
As usual we will have great dance demonstrations and our first ever
Mariachi contest, (bring your Mexican karaoke CD and sing along with us)
raffles, piñata and very good dinner by Mexico City restaurants.
Two great music bands are coming to bring the best of their repertory; the folkloric
band Musuhalpa & the Latin Jazz of Puro Queso.
The entrance is free and we’ll open at 5 pm, dinner/buffet will be ready at 5:30
(only $8 dollars per person). Don’t forget that after this event we continue
the dance with the authentic Cuban Salsa band Guaracha performing from 10 pm to 1
at the Altar Bar in the strip district too
(just minutes away from the Contemporary Craft).
Save the date and see you all there.
