En Las Tablas Potluck

En Las Tablas dance studio was a great place for Potluck: Chicago. Our host, Maritza, gathered a few families and we each brought a dish that represented a memory from our childhood. The richness of Latino food, mixed with exquisite ethnic plates from other countries, the smiles, the growing up stories that related to the food, the conversations, the games, and all the beautiful faces of adults and children enjoying each others’ company, was the frame in which we were welcomed at En Las Tablas. Language was not a barrier, and by the end of the evening, we were all, no longer strangers, clustered around Maritza at the heart of the room.
