    I've been to this event two years ago and it was alot of fun. Attend if you like good food and lots of salsa music.

    Although I enjoyed the Salsa music, I really do think they should have had our "real" musica tipica, which is jibaro/folkloric music from the mountains of Puerto Rico! Check it out on you tube!! Muchas gracias!
