Thursday, October 18, 2018 | 6:00PM — 8:00PM
Join writer Gustavo Arellano for another installment in our Borderlands of Southern Colorado lecture series. Mexican food in the United States is popularly thought of as a static thing that's either "authentic" or "fake." But the reality is far more complex—and delicious! Gustavo Arellano, writer of the syndicated "Ask a Mexican!" column and author of Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America, gives a talk about the history of Mexican food in the United States, with an emphasis on how Mexican food evolved in Colorado. He might even eat a Slopper while he's in town!
