My Spanish is fairly decent. I have been bilingual all of my life but there is always room for improvement, especially with reading and writing.
Ninfa's (on Navigation), Pico's, Lupe Tortillas, Churrascos, La Flor the Cuba (they have live music and dancing too!), Cafe Adobe, Dodo's Chicken, most Taquerias (I love menudo)
I am a native Houstonian as is my mother. My maternal grandparents were from Mexico although they lived most of their lives here in Houston too.
Love the old Cantinflas movies. Also the ones with Joselito, and Marisol from my childhood. I especially like Alejandro Fernandez. I also love to dance. Salsa, merengue, batacha etc.
Love the language and the culture of all of the Spanish speaking countries. Each brings it's own "touch". I enjoy learning, comparing and experiencing the differences and similarities. Especially with the foods and dance styles.
Fun, varied and imaginative meetups! Very friendly people. Good mix of levels of expertise in the language.
