Ah....the flavors of the Caribbean: warm spices, silky rum drinks, fish fresh from the sparkling blue sea. Come get a taste of tropical paradise at a festive, friendly dinner hosted by Litereati member Ruth Smerling at Tumbao, a hip and vibrant Caribbean kitchen.
Choose your feast from Tumbao's extensive menu of sun-kissed, Puerto Rican/Cuban favorites: pineapple-BBQ chicken, hearty skirt steaks, roasted plantains, sweet coconut shrimp. Sip on a cool pina colada or a tangy mojito. Then burn it all off after dinner as you shake your hips to some hot Latin beats out on the dance floor!
Reservations have been made under the name "Ruth Sperling - Meetup" for 7 pm sharp! Bring your appetite, your ID and a friend or two. We're sharing this adventure with our fellow foodies at Chicago Dining Out, and since it'll book up fast you'll need to save your spot right away. To ensure an adequate headcount, we're requiring a small deposit with your RSVP. When you arrive at dinner, you'll receive your $5 back, in cash, to spend as you like. If you cancel or no-show, your deposit will go into an account to help pay our Meetup dues and support food-related charities in our community. Please note that RSVP's will close 48 hours before the event.
I can't make this one personally, but I always welcome your comments, questions and suggestions for future meetups. To reach me, click on my name or email me at [masked]. -- Shawna Katie Bohn, Organizer.
Enjoy Tumbao, and in the meantime, here's some spicy reading to whet your appetite!
