Tuesday night was a long anticipated evening with hospitality industry friends – a social evening of dinner and Stomp performed by the New York Broadway national touring company. There were about ten of us – most of who I know from working in hotels or through a national association I belong to.
We met for dinner at 5:00 PM at Tequila Museo Mayahuel at 1200 K Street downtown, just a block from the Sacramento Community Center Theater. An upscale, attractive restaurant right on the corner of 12th and K Streets. They have a lovely selection of signature margaritas and varied and interesting menu items. Their website was down at the time of this writing, but I’m sure you will find the menu interesting and varied!
I ordered their La Flor margarita – made with Frida Kahlo silver tequila, fresh lime juice, agave nectar, muddled fresh cucumber, mint and grapefruit juice, served on the rocks. Delightful, refreshing, NOT sweet – and one was plenty!
For dinner, I thoroughly enjoyed CARNITAS DE ATTACHEO MICHOACÁN which is an experience from the home of the owner, Attacheo Michoacán. Braised and simmered tender pork carnitas served with charro beans, pico de gallo, salsa de chile de arbol and a roasted jalapeño. Of course, one has a choice of corn or flour tortillas.
The front half of the restaurant is ideal for intimate dining , while the back half is already set with large tables to accommodate 10-12 people. Not unexpectedly, service is not QUICK, but then it’s not fast food.
After dinner, we walked the short block to 13th and L Street to the Community Theater to watch Stomp! I’m not sure I knew what to expect, but it was absolutely unexpected! A delightful two hours of percussion created by everything from match boxes to broom sticks to newspaper to tire inner tubes to coughing to garbage cans and more! Without any spoken lines this amazing troup of percussion and dance professionals absolutely entertains the audience through segments of unique performance and media, telling a story in each. The audience is included in parts throughout in interactive joining in by clapping.
Well worth the money, and the evening with friends was absolutely exceptional!
