Rosa Mexicano on Sunset
Another yum-tastic celebration that took place over summer break was a dinner party hosted by Nicole Myden of NM-PR and Gina Wade of Gina Wade Creative at Rosa Mexicano on Sunset. The most fabulous bloggers attended an intimate dinner where the tequila flowed, the chit-chat & laughter roared and new friendships were made over the most delicious margaritas imaginable.
Let me start with saying that Rosa Mexicano on Sunset is absolutely gorgeous! From the moment you step through the doors, you cannot help to immediately start thinking, “What can I host here?…Who is celebrating something?…When’s the next GNO?.” The music is fantastic, the decor is sleek and seksi, and the food, let’s just say it’s YUMazing. I would like to apologize to our readers in advance, the lighting is very dim and romantic at Rosa Mexicano, so my photos turned out rather dark.
