dodger stadium & montejo…

it’s summer & i’ve been spending a lot of time at dodger stadium. i’ve finally have come to appreciate the little things about this glorious park. the lights, the game, & yes all the delicious food! montejo beer along with latina bloggers connect, were gracious enough to invite us to an incredible dinner by the dodger dugout. chef edie ruiz (corazon y miel) arranged the most beautiful tailgate-inspired spread. the night was so much fun & i’m so happy to have been apart of this amazing group of people.
