Most people here in Vallarta will be celebrating Christmas Eve or Noche Buena with elaborate dinners and lots of music and drink. But we are celebrating Festivus, albeit a non-traditional Festivus, the traditional religious holiday alternative for the rest of us. Although we do not exclude Christians and other orthodox religious people from our Festivus Fiesta, we must admit that many of us, at least the organizers of VallartaScene, are not of any flock.
OK, so we’re a day late on this holiday, but, what the hell, this is Mexico and we are assimilated.
Wednesday, December 24, we will have our weekly VallartaScene meetup at Cafe Mordidas, beginning at 5 pm. Everyone is welcome. If you are new, this is an excellent way to check out the regulars. If you are a regular, this is just another night of camaraderie, relaxation, laughs, cheap eats and drinks.
This meetup is a potluck and everyone attending is encouraged to bring an appetizer or a dessert. With experience gained from our years of hosting potlucks, we request that you do not bring a Costco or supermarket dessert. The reason for this is, basically, that they generally suck. Exceptions are always made for quality commercial items.
Some examples of dishes to bring are Swedish meatballs, deviled eggs, tamales, chips and dips, cheeses, simple casseroles, deli meats, and, of course, the traditional Festivus dishes of spaghetti and meatloaf. You need not bring much of anything, just enough to share with a few people, unless it’s really good. We will supply items like French bread and chips.
Feel free to BYOB and we will also have a cash bar (with our normal low prices) for those who don’t. We will also be adding favorites like Rompopo, Eggnog and hot buttered rum to the bar.
