2015 No Way Jose! Posada Party December 19

2015 No Way Jose! Posada Party December 19

No Way Jose! invites you to attend one of our most fun parties of the year, our 2015 posada. What is a posada you ask? Posada is Spanish for “lodging”, or “accommodation”The nine-day period in which the posadas occur, represent the nine months of pregnancy, specifically the pregnancy of Mary carrying Jesus. A procession usually occurs and on each night a different home plays the part of the ‘inn’ . The resident of the ‘inn’ recognizes Mary and Joseph, sings a song, and allows them and the members of the procession into their home whom then often pray around a nativity scene.The evenings usually end with the children taking a turn to break the piñata and gather as many treats as they can. Read more about this long celebrated tradition here. Although we will be celebrating bit differently, on Saturday, December 19th, we invite all of our friends and family into our ‘inn’ on this night for a beautiful celebration of friends, food, and fun. We will have live music, giveaways, and surprises starting at 7:00 PM. The first 30 guests will receive a flaming coffee on the innkeeper, Jose Alfredo. The night continues with a signature street party where children young and old will have their hand at the piñata, and try to see how many treasures you can take home! Don’t miss this very special night. Unlike Mary and Joseph, you can reserve room at our inn by clicking...

Unveils Your New Oyster Bar Season 6 Open Party – Monday, Sept 15 In March 2005, American and Italian scientists announced that there is some truth to the long-standing belief that oysters can get folks feeling frisky. In the study, scientists took raw oysters and used a process to pinpoint specific amino acids present in the oysters. They discovered amino acids which produced testosterone in male studies and progesterone in females, which increases libido. The conclusion: “Yes, I do think these molluscs are aphrodisiacs,” said the head of the research team. We knew it all along! Click here to learn more about the research study. With incredible pleasure we announce the No Way José! Oyster Bar premiering at our Season Open Party on Monday, Sept 15 to celebrate El Grito de la Independencia.

Favorites For years, scientists have assumed that huitlacoche (WEET-LA-KO-CHE) – a gray-black corn fungus long-savored in Mexico – had nutritional values similar to those of the corn on which it grew.

You’ll discover this tasty delicacy in one of our most popular dinner dishes, our Breast of Chicken Xochimilco-Style. This juicy breast of chicken stuffed with spinach and cheese and bathed in this full-bodied earthy sauce on a bed of white rice will become one of your NWJ! favorites after your first bite.
