El Patio had a very special visitor. Fifi Box (Fox FM, 6-9am weekdays) was brought blindfolded into one of our Wednesday morning classes for a #BlackoutChallenge. When all was revealed, she slowly came to understand that she had to give a Spanish class! What ensued was a hilarious walk on the edge, with Fifi trying to muster up ANY WORD that she knew in Spanish - and making US feel good that we were catching on! Gracias Fifi, you're welcome back for a fiesta anytime!
Each year El Patio books a big bus to take a group on a day trip to del Rios of Mt. Anakie, a winery established and run by Spanish family Gus and Esther del Rios. We get to taste their wines and are treated to a fabulous Spanish lunch, overseen by abuela (grandmother) Damiana. Book tickets online! (go to Shop/del Rios Winery trip)
