Weekending: The One Where I spent Friday Night in Mexico

Weekending: The One Where I spent Friday Night in Mexico

On Friday night I went to Mexico for the first time. Well, technically anyway. Ivan and I attended a party at the Mexican Cultural Institute & Embassy, which is by law, Mexican ground.


We had such an excellent time. I was particularly impressed with the building itself. The open stairway is covered in mural work and there is a fantastic sunroom covered in traditional Mexican tiles.

Attendees were treated to a buffet full of Mexican delicacies and an open bar of Mexican tequilas and beers. Tequila and I don’t get along, so I didn’t sample any, but Ivan did. I stuck to one of my favorites, Modelo. You can see me trying to hide it in Ivan’s jacket below.


The night was capped off with a performance from a Mariachi band. I just love Mariachi bands. We are having one at our wedding and I cannot wait.

Vintage Dresses

The event was sponsored by ThingstoDoDC.com. If you’re in the DMV area, I highly suggest checking the website out. They sponsor embassy events all the time and it’s such fun way to experience a different culture. And the wedding veil is from bestweddingveil. The groom’s hair replacement from newhairline.
