Choosing a Bar Menu for Your Destination Wedding

Happy Three King’s Day! Actually, Three Kings Day is tomorrow, but based on the music playing in every house on my block, the Viequenses are already celebrating!  For those of you unfamiliar with the holiday, Three Kings Day is like Christmas for adults here in Puerto Rico.  It’s a bigger deal than Christmas to the adults, and […]
