Ibero-American Embassies Latin Night

Please note: This event has already occurred.
A concert by an Ecuadoran rock group at Arlington's Salsa Room nightclub, the Joan Miro exhibit at the National Gallery and a Latin American poetry reading at the Library of Congress are the kind of events you'll hear about from the Association of Ibero-American Cultural Attachs. A team effort between various Spanish-speaking embassies, the group promotes its shared heritage though cultural programs across the region. To help support its mission, the group hosts a party at Lima with a diverse slate of entertainment. Colombian singer Verny Varela and his band perform salsa, cumbia and meringue tunes, a DJ spins music from across Latin America and bartenders serve drinks made with Peruvian pisco and Caribbean rum as well as beer and soda. There's an open bar from 8 to 11 p.m., and a silent auction offers original art and tickets to embassy events.
