Ok si, of course BB would give comida a starring role, but think about it- isn't it truly part of our spirit and story? The history of our meals, the love passed on from past generations in our platos favoritos, the sense of belonging in our sofritos- oh yes My Beautifuls, the color of our lives is definitely embraced by our food. In this, I think the choice to dine at El Mercadito was brilliant.
|Tacos de Pescado- Fish Tacos|
|Flan de Cajeta, Morenita de Chocolate & Pastel de Queso|
Oh my and Oh Yeah.
Pero sabe que? Ya know what My Beautifuls?
Amazingly as it may sound, this wasn't the best part of the evening for BB.
For Babushka the best part was:
|Sweetest of Swag|
Quee?? JU SO FONII!!! Ok si, BB's love of swag is almost as infamous as her love of food, but it's the meaning and thought behind this particular swag that Babushka cherishes. The quality of product is excellent and not cheap on any level; this shows they think the same of us. Not only did they give us some of their best to help us do our best, they took the time to research what else was in store for us during Hispanicize 2013 and gifted us Rita Moreno's autobiography for her to sign during the Adelante Movement/Coca Cola event. That's the extra step that makes all the difference in Babushka's eyes. From the hiring of art curator and tour organizer Susana Baker and the multi talented Sonia Velasquez, to including the memoir of one of our own, Latinas were highlighted. Mil Gracias Sherwin-Williams for your insight, acknowledgment and appreciation.
P.S. Once again, this was not a sponsored post, just BB sharing her thoughts and showing her thanks.
P.P.S. Sherwin Williams had many more wonderful times in store for us via their "Colores Latinos;Artistas Latinos" project,
but that will be part of my Hispz13 recap.
