Foodie group

A year ago a group of expats in Guadalajara decided to get together once a month for an informal themed pot-luck to share home-cooked entrees and desserts in the pleasant surroundings of the American Society (Amsoc).  No judges or competition were involved, just a community formed on the love of food and cooking.

Birthday bash

That’s not going to happen. A plethora of events will envelop the city center this weekend, culminating in a tropical dance festival Saturday evening in the Liberacion Plaza.
