The first Hungry Post Sunset Party pop-up in Cartagena took place on May 4th and was presented by:

Bienvenidos to The Hungry Post! We’re all about buena comida, buenos cocteles y buena compañía! We recommend restaurants in Miami and New York City and bring them together through digital content and events.

We host sunset parties, dinners, brunches, cocktail-making classes, and more for our local Latin community with the mission of discovering each city through a culinary lens. Wherever we go, siempre llevamos un pedacito de Miami con nosotros.

This spring, for the first time eeeeeeeever, The Hungry Post went INTERNATIONAL, did you join us?

On Saturday, May 4th, Miami, NYC, and our new Colombian Hungries packed up those beach bags and tropical outfits and joined us for a quick getaway to Cartagena, Colombia!

Our first rumbita Colombiana was one for the books! We took over Casa Palmera, located inside La Ciudad Amurallada. We sipped on refreshing Don Julio cocktails, munched on comidita rica, and enjoyed buena musiquita Latina. As for the food, menu highlights included: Trilogía de Tacos, Crispy Calamari, Ceviche de Pescado, and more.

La rumba estuvo increíble! We danced pegadito to the best reggaetoncito played by our favorite Miami DJs: Juan Diego Viteri and Andre Ferro. Plus, we also had un poco de talento local with Ivan Montes and Nicolas Nohra. These guys set the mood and had us dancing hasta bieeeeen tarde!

Thank you for joining us at our first international Sunset Party pop-up Hungries! It was an EPIC rumba and it wouldn’t have been the same without you there! We hope to come back real soon! But for now, we’ll see you at our next events back in Miami and NYC!

Here’s what went down at the first international Sunset Party pop-up in Cartagena, Colombia at Casa Palmera presented by Don Julio!
