The Incas at Museo de las Americas ~ Spanish Happy Hour

Come practice your Spanish! Every month Museo de las Americas hosts a Spanish Happy Hour on the third Friday of the month from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. This is a fun opportunity to practice your Spanish. There is also an “activity” during the event. The activity is presented both in Spanish and English. The activity for October was Alter Making! This month there will be a presentation about the Inca Quipu system of communication (a system that used ropes to make knots and record information). This presentation goes with the Quipu that they currently have on display. Then we can try to make our own Quipu, while practicing our Spanish of course!

The price is $3 for members and $5 for non-members. That includes the activity, a drink (which is  wine or beer, soft drinks and water available as well) and sometimes they have snacks. Of course you’ll also be able to see the current exhibit at the museum while you mingle in Spanish.

I was told the “numbered streets” have free parking, otherwise it’s metered parking.

    Gussie - If I recall correctly, that was a special event, with drinks sponsored by a liquor distributor. While every time is a bit different - that's one of the fun things about it - what I'm used to most months, is the admission charge, appetizers, and the bar with the tip/donation jar for alcoholic beverages (there's also water available).

    It is hard to know. The one time I went some months ago, visitors received a drink ticket or two with cost of admission! Confusing to say the least!

      If that's the case, there will probably still be a tip jar, so plan on tipping. Also, if you're planning on coming, please add your name to the attendee list. :)

    That's odd. The museum woman told me they don't sell drinks save by tips. So who knows the real story! ;)

      The woman on the phone told me the same thing. The last time I went was ages ago, so I don't remember how they did it, but I do know that JP goes fairly regularly, so maybe he knows. It sounds like it would be a good idea to bring a little money if you want a drink, even if it's just so you can tip.

      I think they can't formally sell drinks - but they do have a jar for tips or donations, and given that it's a worthy non-profit, I would suggest being prepared with some cash to put if you want an alcoholic beverage. The admission already covers the appetizers that they always provide, and of course goes towards their overhead. When the cultural activity includes a food or beverage, like the history of Tequila production or the technique and variations in making Pisco Sours, then there are often free samples.

    For anyone else left unclear by the cost, the $3 for members or $5 for non-members is cost of museum admission and not the meetup membership. Secondly, the presentation begins around 6 p.m.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
