Katty, one of our intrepid Borderlinkers, has invited us to join her at her art gallery for a fantastic evening of Venezuelan cocktails, an international potluck dinner and dancing afterwards.

Kontempo Art Gallery

Katty is an artist and owns Kotempo Art Gallery on Calle Ocho which features contemporary art from around the world. 

Her gallery is currently featuring an exhibit called "Cool Ages" by Pedro Silva plus artwork by herself, Ricardo Garcia, George Goodridge, Rebeca Gilling and Astolfo Funes.

Part I: International Potluck Dinner - 7 P.M.

Borderlinkers come from varied lands.  Let's showcase some of our ethnic roots with an international potluck dinner!

Please post your potluck contribution below with either an appetizer, main dish, dessert or drink.

To start our evening off, Katty has offered to make us Venezuelan cocktails!
