Borderlands Lecture Series

Mexican Food Along the Borderlands (That Even Extend to Colorado)

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!

Coffee and biscochitos at 6, lecture at 6:30.
