Next to the professional artists was an area where you could spray paint your own artwork.
It was very impressive how PopUpParty took over Pueblo and paired great food and drink with lovely art to create an amazing event. Turns out the Executive Chef Eduardo created the menu exclusively for the event. Thanks to Leigh-Anne Anderson the PopUpParty Publicist who invited us to their first PopUpParty . Thanks for the cool gift bag with samples from Savvy Travelers, on the go beauty wipes, Six Gifts Shop, beauty buff bars, Eat Cleaner, fruit and veggies wipes, and Pochtecca Liqueurs from Mexico.

Walking up to this event I spied a red carpet complete with a white roped off area, a welcome desk filled with various goodies and numerous happy people to welcome us. Shortly thereafter we were warmly welcomed by Leigh-Anne Anderson and given a short tour of the various vendor locations inside and outside of this restaurant called Pueblo. A special thank you to the lovely Leigh-Anne for making us feel so special. ?
What to do first? Hard to pick, the food cooking outside on the grill smelled wonderful so off we went. A choice of beef or chicken skewers complete with a warm tortilla and fresh salsa was offered. The chicken was tender, the vegetables paired well, tortilla nicely browned and salsa had an interesting mix of seasonings. Over all I really liked it and went back a few times more. While happily munching on the skewers, it was entertaining to watch the two artist’s tending to their paintings. Fascinating to see each artwork unfold before you as the night went on. By far my favorite station at this unique event. Also a few blank canvas’s were provided to the guests attending. So anyone adventurous enough could paint. For me I was content to watch the professionals at work.
Loads of food to try out, the grilled corn on the cob had a nice barbecue flavor and I especially liked the options for toppings. Ended up choosing the butter, cheese and lime, very appetizing indeed. The salmon tar-tar had a scrumptious sauce paired with the taro chips.
The drink stations had numerous alcohol and non-alcohol choices.The Pochteca table had choices of; lime, coconut, pomegranate or hibiscus liqueur made with Tequila and Agave. Tasted the pomegranate, very smooth, spot on sweetness, finished with the taste of pomegranate. Love how it’s balanced so expertly, one flavor does not over power another. Next table had hibiscus tea, charmingly brewed, had to have more than one cup. At the bar I decided on the margarita, magnificent presentation with the foam on top, superb tasting.
The whole concept of the PopUpParty is such a tremendously clever idea. Especially enjoyed how the amount of guests was kept at a normal level. Compared to other places I’ve been that try to see just how many people they can cram into a small space, making it uncomfortable and hard to move around. I’m looking forward to where the next PopUpParty adventure will be in the future. We received gift bags upon our departure, such a thoughtful way to end the evening. ?
