Hot food and hot music gave Fiesta Latina 2000 a spicy flavor. Some 220 supporters of Centro De La Comunidad, Baltimore's Latino Community Center, gathered at Lista's Mexican restaurant in Fells Point. The guests savored salty margaritas as a mariachi band strolled through the crowd. Taste buds got another tingle at the dinner buffet, thanks to the hot wings, fajitas and refritos.

The sticky evening air simmered with mariachi music, providing the perfect backdrop to enjoy the salty bite of a margarita. And that was only for starters at "Fiesta Latina 2001," a fund-raiser for Centro de la Comunidad. Many of the 200 guests browsed the buffet at Lista's Restaurant and danced up a storm to the Latin beat of Grupo Latino Continental -- both activities again requiring further margarita reinforcements for many of the participants. Among those at the party: Lilian Laszlo, event chair; Nancy Alexandrou, event committee member; Dr. Leonardo R. Ortega, Centro de la Comunidad board president; Dr. Magaly Rodriguez de Bittner, Antonio Salazar, Dr. Sonia Fierro-Luperini and Hector Torres, board members; Carmen Nieves, Centro de la Comunidad executive director; Jane Harrison, Abell Foundation senior program officer; Angelo Solera, Baltimore Health Department Hispanic community liaison; Ana Bertrando, Career Communications Group Inc. conference coordinator; Mario Armstrong, Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development IT manager; Bill Stagg, Prince George's County Hispanic Advisory Committee chair; Albert Smink, ARTEX Inc. safety manager; Vincent Talarico, retired General Electric vice president; Dr. Christos Davatzikos, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine professor of radiology; Wendy Senft and Sue Glick, English as a second language teachers; Susana Ptak, I.H.

Centro Tapas Bar is off to a promising start. This is the old Bicycle spot, and it's nice to have the place back open after a brief hiatus. Centro was lively on the weeknight when we visited, though only the front room, which includes the bar, was seating diners. The two smaller (and, frankly, less inviting) dining rooms weren't in use, and Bicycle's sweet old back patio, appearing to be in peak condition, was waiting for nice weather to come and stay. Centro is the project of George Dailey, whose On the Hill Café in Bolton Hill has earned him many friends and fans.

Centro de la Comunidad The lilt of Latin music, and goldfish bowls on dinner tables set a bubbly tone for the evening inside the American Visionary Art Museum's sculpture barn. Welcome to "Fiesta Latina 2003," the annual fund-raiser for Baltimore's Latino community center, Centro de la Comunidad. More than 200 guests browsed a buffet of paella, carved tenderloin and grilled chicken, and sampled drinks from a martini bar.
