Multicultural Center: Noche en Sinaloa - Mexican Salsa & Dip Competition
Angelo State University’s Multicultural Center will present Noche en Sinaloa (An Evening in Sinaloa) at the ASU Pavilion near the Plaza Verde residence hall, 1941 S. Van Buren St.
Bring your own chips! Individuals, departments and organizations are encouraged to participate!
The event will run from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and is open free to the public. Activities will include a salsa and dip contest, folkloric dancers, mariachi and Banda music, and cultural information inspired by the novel Into the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urreas.
The winners of the salsa and dip contest will receive a prize, a certificate, a framed professional photo, and their names will appear in the publication Conexcion San Angelo and the Multicultural Center’s Diversity Dialogue…along with bragging rights!
To sign up for a table, e-mail Erika Baeza at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Urreas’ novel is the centerpiece of this year’s The Common Read and The Big Read programs sponsored by ASU and the Tom Green County Library. The purpose of Noche en Sinaloa is to promote literature and prompt more involvement in those programs by providing cultural information and an entertaining evening.
Also sponsoring Noche en Sinaloa are the ASU Freshman College, Center for Student Involvement and Office of Housing and Residential Programs, as well as the Conexion Hispana newspaper.
