¡Mate Para Todos!
Thursday, May 7
Many people are familiar with yerba maté as a stimulating coffee alternative. But few understand exactly how good the rich green drink is for you, nor its traditional place in the cul ture of Argentina and its neighbors. Come join Heather Dunn, your friendly servidora for a traditional maté gathering, and learn about the etiquette, nutrition, cultural significance, and tools surrounding this increasingly popular beverage, with some room saved for some of the good ol’ charlando that maté is known to inspire. We’ll all be sharing the same gourd (maté) and straw (bombilla), as is traditional, so please come healthy, or be comfortable sitting out the round and take notes so you can host your own maté ceremony (party would be a better word) for your friends at home.
