Humanitini: The Legend of Mambo Sauce
Bright red, or murky brown, few foods define DC like Mambo Sauce. Surprisingly, this little sauce has cooked up big talk of loyalty, credibility, and cultural appropriation. Now served in white tablecloth establishments, or on styrofoam plates this secret sauce and the memories it inspires have been invoked by local bands, local entrepreneurs, and residents from across the city. Our discussion will look for the DC roots of Mambo Sauce, and where its home is. Hopefully we’ll find out whose sauce is the best!
What is a Humanitini?
A public program of HumanitiesDC, the National Endowment for the Humanities nonprofit state affilate for the District of Columbia, Humanitini is an exciting happy hour event where Washington’s movers, shakers, and creators come together to think and drink. It is a place for you to engage with your peers, meet your neighbors, and speak with experts about what makes our city a unique place to live and play.
