Taco Bar
A new Hospitality Committee event, the Taco Bar, will debut on Thursday, November 3rd.  Starting a new tradition, socializing will begin at 5:00 (not the usual 4:30) followed by dinner at 5:30.  The cost will be $8.00 per person and will include drinks, taco bar, black bean salad and dessert. If you are new to Esperanza and haven't met many people, don't let that dissuade you from attending. The EE Bienvenidos Committee will reserve a table for new residents, and welcomes you to sit there if you choose. You won't feel alone in a crowd. Just identify yourself to the Bienvenidos representative stationed at the ticket table, and you'll be directed to the new residents' table.
