Livin’ La Vida Loca

This May Hong Kong is getting hot, hot, hot with a little help from our friends in Central and South America. Slip on your Havaianas, flash a little leg and head into town, your caipirhinias are waiting!

Oye Como Va
Cinco de Mayo is this Saturday and it’s time you got your gringo butt in gear. Get the party started at Don Juan Mexican Restaurant with their four-hour, all-you-can-eat-and-drink fiesta for $345. (Shop G6/UG 16, Tsim Sha Tsui Centre, 66 Mody Road, Tsim Sha Tsui East, 2722 7101). Still craving something spicy, Senorita? Head a little further south to Coyote Bar and Grill (114-120 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai, 2861 2221) for an Argentinean-style Churrasco. Huge skewers of slow-cooked beef, lamb, herbed chicken or seafood in a two-course dinner for $168, starting with a choice of traditional chicken and rice soup, or coconut rice and smoky beans. Deliciosio!

Shake Your Bon-Bon
Tonight (Thursday) is Noches Cubana at Lotus.  Heat up the dance floor with sensual salsa beats and cool down with their delectable cocktails (10.30pm-2am, 37-43 Pottinger Street, Central, 2543 6290). On Saturday, grab your sombreros and head to Agave for its sizzling Cinco de Mayo party where hot Latino tunes will be spinning all night (9pm-late, 93 Lockhart Road, Wanchai, 2866 3228).  If you can’t get the beats out of your mind after the weekend, keep your hips and feet swaying all the way to Armani Bar, where on Monday they’ll be playing sultry salsa music (9pm-1am, 2/F, Chater House, 11 Chater Road, Central, 2849 3328).

Is the only salsa you can do the kind with tortilla chips? Leave it to the professionals, cross the border (er, harbour) to the HK Convention and Exhibition center and plant those hips, Shakira, firmly in your seat to witness Burn the Floor, one of the most dramatic dance shows touring the world today.  First performed at Sir Elton John’s birthday party, this eclectic blend of samba, salsa, waltz, tango, swing and jive will be heating up Hong Kong for three days only, May 4-6.  So get your tickets today before the fire goes out (HK Ticketing 288 288).

Amigos, vamos de fiesta!
