Latino Night @ Spago
May 27 @ 7:00 p.m.
Ramadan is great. The food is amazing, and the vibes are unmatched by any other season. The only downside is that you don’t get to move your hips as much to the sound of music. That’s about to change with Spago’s Latin Night. There will be salsa, and not just on your food. Don’t overdo it at their Mexican buffet!
