Sabrosura! by Cydnie T. '12

...yeah so some variation of deliciousness/tastefulness

Last night, the Latino Cultural Center (LCC) groups hosted their annual cultural night, Sabrosura!

Sabrosura, as described to me, means:

“sabor = taste…sabroso = delicious/tasteful…sabrosura = even more tasteful?…yeah so some variation of deliciousness/tastefulness”

This night was just that, deliciousness and tastefulness.

First on the deliciousness menu, there was a smorgasbord of amazing food from both Peru and the Dominican Republic.

To top off the night, Boston’s own DJ Phix turned the tables with the latest Salsa and Reggaeton hits for hours and hours of dancing fun!

Sabrosura was AMAZING, tasty, delicious, fun, entertaining, fun, filling, exciting, other adjectives that show you how cool this event was!

And the BEST part is, I got to dress up for it!!

    Ummm, sorry for that ^ , Cydnie! It can be irritating I guess…but it was just what I hoped for five minutes ago and on seeing “0 Comments”, I kinda flipped out!

    But Sabrosura sure looked tasteful( Did you get that? Tasty and classy? No? Never mind..) and loads of fun! Is it an annual event?
