fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The hosts at this event were full of enthusiasm. The festivities included an empanada making contest. Food was bountiful, but not the best I have had in this city of culinary delights. Included history of and making mate, which was interesting. Groups sat at two large tables, and ours included a couple of people who were not from RY, which was fine. It was a fun evening!
