Ever wish you could party in Colombia, but can't leave the country due to the U.S. government revoking your passport some years back for that incident involving tabletops and fishnet stockings at the airport lobby bar? Well, not to worry, Jazid and MiamiAlterLatino.com have got you covered with the first installment of the new International Thursdays. Because tonight, they're kicking off the series with Colombian Parranda.
Starting at 11 p.m. you can down four dollar agua ardiente shots, and once hopped up on the sugary, anise-flavored happy juice, get down to some cumbia, vallenato, Tropipop and pop rock -- all the beloved sounds from the motherland of get down powder and needless but aesthetically pleasing plastic surgery. Not that those are bad things. Though they are stereotypes, and while hilarious, it's important we remember that stereotypes are wrong.
