Tortilla Feast & Taco Party
I went to the Peruvian one last night. It was such a fantastic evening. The food was more than generous with delicious ethnic drinks from various Peruvian regions. There were dancers with beautiful elaborate dress and costumes. But best of all was the documentary. It not only talked about food and its importance to the Peruvian people, it also took us to the different countries the Peruvian people had migrated to and how their cooking spread and foods are embraced in places like London and Paris. This is an absolutely wonderful festival by Su Teatro.
Hello I am a teenager form Cherokee Trail High School. For our Spanish summer homework we will be required to log five hours of Spanish culture that we experienced. And for my English homework we were required to read Like Water For Chocolate. I would really enjoy going to the Film Fiesta on July 27th. Me and my parent know that the movie is rated R and they are allowing me to go, however we were wondering if there are any restrictions for teenagers. I am 16 by the way. This would be a great opportunity. Please respond as soon as possible. Thank you!
I spoke with someone at Su Teatro and they said if parents accompany their children, there are no age restrictions.
While they can't come with me the movie Tortilla Heaven is PG-13 could we stay through that movie then leave before Like Water For Chocolate so that I can at least get 3hrs for my Spanish culture project or will we not even be able to enter the door?
There are definitely no age restrictions. I can confirm that.
