Spend a Couple Hours »Host a Party Pio Pio Riko

 Ballet Folklorio Mexican YavidaxiuWe have gorged on half chickens and rice and beans at the local Pio Pio Riko for years but never did I guess that on Fridays, the place turns into our own Peruvian Sammy's Romanian Steakhouse with entertainment and fun times. I found out recently when a friend decided to throw a going away party here for my dear friend Laura, who is moving to California (whether it breaks all our hearts or not).

The hostess who helped plan to party promised lots of surprises. Their weekend lounge singer, a charismatic and mysterious woman behind a piano sang California Dreaming and California Girls in dedication to our friend's new West Coast adventure. But I was most taken with her sultry, slow Oops I Did It Again that followed The Wall by Pink Floyd.

The real, very special treat, however was a spirited performance by Ballet Folklorio Mexicano Yavidaxiu, a group of beautiful dancers keeping the traditional dances of their countries alive. The costumes, particularly a sequined floor length skirt and the magnificent floral hairpieces were stunning. They helped make a special night even more so.

Seriously, if you live locally and are looking for a place to host a large party at no huge cost, I can't recommend Pio Pio Riko high enough. They were gracious and the staff had as much fun as we all did.

We were told a ladies night is happening soon that also promises some major surprises…
