'Heckler's Delight' Returns to Taste October 9 & 19

October 6, 2016

"The Donald" (Taste @ Casa Cupula owner Don Pickens) and Heckler's Delight co-host, Laura Gelezunas, are planning more FUN-tastic Vallarta debate watching parties. Join in the fun on October 9 and 19, 2016.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - "The Donald" made another unexpected appearance in Mexico on Monday, September 26, 2016. Well, actually it was Casa Cupula owner, Don Pickens, cleverly disguised as Trump at the Heckler's Delight Debate Party at Taste Restaurant, part of his luxurious boutique hotel on the southern shores of Puerto Vallarta.

It was a full house with over 50 people gathered to be entranced by the first presidential debate. There were plenty of oohs, aahs, laughter and sometimes gasps of genuine disbelief.

"What a difference, watching the debate with 40 or more relatively like-minded friends!" said Tom Swale, Proud Democrat. "At home I'm usually the only one talking back to the screen and laughing at the gaffes. The Chris Christy All-You-Can-Eat buffet didn't hurt, either."

The appetizer buffet was filled and refilled with sliders, sushi, mini caprese salads, a taco bar, ceviche, chicken wings, pizza, mini cheesecakes, brownies and more.

"It was an impressive turnout considering many expats/snowbirds have not yet returned to Vallarta," said Laura Gelezunas, co-host of the event. "What a wonderful night of exhausting words, 'the best words,' making new friends and feeling the election buzz."

Don Pickens is planning to host more debate parties at Taste @ Casa Cupula. You can join in on the fun on Sunday, October 9 and Wednesday, October 19, 2016. The doors open at 7 pm, and the cost is $299 pesos, which includes a welcome cocktail and the 3-hour-long Chris Christy All-You-Can-Eat buffet: appetizers, main courses and desserts.
