Damp days like today naturally lead one's thoughts to lusher, more tropical climes—a leisurely jaunt to the islands, let's say, or across the equator. But instead of following the herds to the usual, overtrafficked stalwarts (we're lookin' at you, Costa Rica), we invite you to consider the sun-dappled secrets of El Salvador.
The more populous areas feature numerous festivals celebrating El Salvador's art, music and culinary delights. But more adventurous, sporty travelers will be drawn to the country's awesome vistas from atop highly-accessible volcanic mountain ranges, and the legendary Punta Roca surf break offers the best boarding in Central America.
7x7 is hosting a free event next Wednesday, February 23rd, at SOM. to celebrate the warmth, the spirit and yes, the affordability of Central America's smallest treasure. Folks from Taca Airlines will be available to chat about your journey, and the beats of DJ Kingmost will keep the temperature hot.
We'll have delicious pupusas from Balompié Cafe, as well as ridiculously affordable (sense a theme here?) specials on rum cocktails ($3) and El Salvadoran beer ($2).
Discover El Salvador, Wednesday, February 23, from 7 p.m to 8:30 p.m., at SOM. Bar, 2925 16th St. (at Mission), SF.
Must be 21 and over with valid photo ID.
