Forget about the Tango, Denver Yelpers “Salsa y Salsa”ed their way through the night at La Rumba Saturday evening. A hundred elites and their guests spent the evening sampling tequilas from El Jimador, Herradura, Cazadores and Corzo Modern Tequila, and washing down small bites from Mezcal and Tambien with Del Norte Brewing's Orale and Manana beers. BOA Energy Drink offered a tasty (and rejuvenating) alternative for those who didn't want to indulge in an adult bev!
Yelpers taste-tested salsas from all over town, with front runners Carlos Miguel's, 4Gs Cafe, Las Delicias, and Illegal Pete's rounding up the most votes. Which teams reigned supreme in the guac-off? Team Hot Tamales (Matt P and Erin M) took in Best Guac, Team Island Hoppers (Sherri S and Jay B) trounced the Best Theme category, and Buddha's Little Helpers (Yvonne C and Genevieve B) were voted Most Original. Congrats, all!
Clay Carlton of Palma Cigars demonstrated the fine art of cigar rolling
all evening, with Yelpers taking home their own personal Yelp cigars. And finally, the night was rounded out with a lively performance by Senora and Jig from DanzArtz Studios, complete with a group salsa lesson that got everybody out on the dance floor. Special thanks to Photography by Demetrius for taking great snaps throughout the night.
Yelpers couldn’t have ended the year any better – as David T puts it “just give me a bottle of the Heradura Anejo and a straw and I'll be a happy guy. Loved watching so many people get their salsa vibe on on the dance floor.”
