From the molé sliders that started off the evening to the tequila sunrises that ended it, “Sabores (Flavors) de las Américas: Tijuana, Baja & Beyond,” co-hosted by TJ’s Municipal Institute of Arts and Culture (IMAC) and the Institute of the Americas, was a tasty event held Aug. 24, 2013 at Institute of the Americas’ facilities at UC San Diego in La Jolla. More than 200 guests from both sides of the border mixed and mingled, sipping espressos, viewing the artworks, and enjoying the smooth moves of tango duo Miguel & Sandra, the fiery flamenco dancing of Norma Michel, and the bilingual cabaret of sultry songstress Madame Ur and her Hombres. “We are bi-nationals,” said Mariza Sanchez, an artist and art consultant who lives in La Jolla. “And it’s time for Tijuana to show us their faces here.”
