Students and visitors enjoyed Latin American food and live music at a taco house evening sponsored by the Latinos for Christ club on March 30 from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. in the J.C. Atrium.

After a blessing was said over the food, participants lined up to get free tacos and drinks.

Tortillas, barbacoa meat, onions, cilantro, radishes, limes and salsa were all provided. Participants could also choose from a variety of drinks, including several kinds of sodas and water.

While participants ate, live music was performed from a stage in the center of the J.C. Groups, including the Franciscan mariachi band and student and alumni-run band Acaciawood performed.

After the meal and performances, the Rev. Rufino Corona, TOR, broke open a piñata.

Tito Padilla, a graduate student, said, “I just love how the campus has attracted a lot of Hispanic people who love to share their culture with others. It brings us closer together, and we all have a lot of fun. That’s what it’s all about!”
