Adrienne gets some local border cultcha

Salsa dinner selfie with Adrienne-e

It was the start of the weekend’s annual Salsa Festival downtown.  They closed off main street for a fundraising dinner, Adrienne’s shout, and entertained us with a lively salsa band and dance demonstrations.  Adrienne got a lesson from a lovely lady at our table, but I was forbidden from taking any photos of her on the dance floor.  She did well enough that I almost called Donald Trump to have her hauled south of the border.  🙂

Arriana (background, above), from Beck’s Coffee shop, was one of the main coordinators of the event.  The woman does everything downtown!  She’d like to make the area a formal art district in time.

I was able to introduce Adrienne to Bob Diven, one of our better known local artists and promoter of public art (he’s proposing an adobe Stonehenge-like installation for the nearby desert as a current project).  Bob reminds me a lot of Dave Machen of Bundy, talented and tireless for the community arts.
