Cinco de Mayo Potluck Party and Sangria Contest!

I love Mexican food. In fact, I love it so much sometimes I pretend I'm Latina. So, it goes without saying that I naturally love Cinco de Mayo celebrations!.....Well, Ok....I really love practically ALL celebrations, but Cinco de Mayo is one that I really go out of my way for each year! When I was growing up, I hosted a party every year.....with a complete "sophisticated" spread of Doritos, Bean Dip, "El Paso" Taco Bar and "Virgin" 'Ritas that tasted something like Gatorade....Not that there is anything WRONG with that.....but I think we can take it up a notch, yes? Steve and Laura have graciously volunteered to open up their art gallary for the evening and will be hosting our fiesta foodie frenzy! So come......bring your enchiladas, your sopas, your chile rellanos, your tamales, your chimichangas.....and let's give a huge culinary salute to Cinco de Mayo! Here's what you party-chefs need to know~:
1. Bring a Mexican dish that will serve approximately 8 people to the party. If you are RSVPing for 2, you should bring 2 dishes. Please bring your dishes ready to serve as the art gallery does not have a kitchen. When you RSVP "Yes"...please indicate what dish you will be bringing under the "comments" section so everybody can view. This will help ensure we have a wide variety of dishes. 2. There will be a SANGRIA contest!! (I know, I know....Sangria is Spanish.....but work with me here....). We are limiting the contestants to the first 6 who declare they are "in". If you want to participate in the contest, you must indicate under the "comments" section of your RSVP that you will be entering your Sangria. THE FIRST 6 who grab a spot are the the ones who will be entering....You need to bring at least 1 gallon of Sangria to the party, with cups for tasting. Sangria will be placed on different tables at the party with a scorecard for judging. You will not know whose Sangria you are tasting. Ballots will be turned into a designated "ballot-collector" who will add up the scores. Winner to be announced at 9:30....and yes. there will be a prize! 3. Party starts at 7......ends at around 10. 4. $9.75 fee goes toward Mexican potluck, wine, beer, sangria, soft drinks and asst supplies. 5. Be prepared to have a ton of fun and indulge in some terrific eats!! Hope to see A LOT of you at Steve and Lauras for our first ever Mexican Fiesta!!! Salud!! Jakki
