Most people here in Vallarta will be celebrating Christmas Eve or Noche Buena with elaborate dinners and lots of music and drink and friends. For those poor, lonely souls who have no where better to go, Mordidas is hosting a Christmas Eve appetizer and dessert pot luck.
We will not be serving our regular Restaurant Menu but we will have our Bar open (… with half price drinks for everyone). We may have Rompopo, Eggnog and hot buttered rum at the bar if we get ambitious.
Although we do not exclude Christians and other orthodox religious people from our Xmas Eve Fiesta, we must admit that many of us are, at least the organizers of of this party, not of any flock. Expect no religious overtones. We do love the parties of all religions, tho.
This party is a potluck and everyone attending is encouraged to bring a simple 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, salsas, deviled eggs, tamales, chips and dips, cheeses, deli meats, and, of course, the traditional Xmas staples like cookies and pie. You need not bring much of anything, just enough to share with a handful of people.
Please let us know if you are thinking about coming: firstname.lastname@example.org
The party starts at 5 pm and ends when it ends…
