Hey I’m Safiyyah and this is what’s happening Belize, for the last Friday in October, Halloween!

In the spirit of Halloween the Riverside Tavern will be having the ultimate Halloween costume party tonight called “The Monster Bash”. The super hype bash will run from nine p.m. until.

Another place adults can get dressed up tonight is at the Spooktacular dance being held by the Rotarac Club of Belize inside the Perky Parrot, in Belize City tonight. The party jumps off at nine p.m. The cost is ten dollars with costume and fifteen dollars without. There will be prizes for the best costumes and free jello shots.

And down south on Saturday, the Ms Garifuna Dangriga Cultural Pageant will be held inside the S.R. Marin Parish Hall in Dangriga. The pageant begins at six-thirty p.m. and features six contestants. The winner from this pageant will go on to compete in the Ms. Garifuna Belize Pageant to be held on the eighth of November in Hopkins.

And also on Saturday night inside Cahal Pech, its Serani and Ms. Thing concert with DJ Richie from Synergy. So make sure you check that out if you can. Tickets are only forty-five dollars.

Also, there will be another Serani concert on the twenty-second of November in Orange Walk so look out for that one as well.

Now its time to find out where the best burritos in Belize City can be found, voted by you.

Saffiyah Mohammed, Reporting
Hey we’re here at the Princess to check out the best burritos voted by you. Princess is not the first place you would think of when you think of burritos but hey you texted it in and now I’m checking it out. So let’s do that.

A burrito or taco de harina is a type of food found in Mexican and Mexican American cuisine.

Alex Alvarez, Chef, Seaview Restaurant
“Good evening, my name is Alex. I’m the chef here at Princess Hotel and Casino and the Seaview Dining Restaurant. First of all, we’re gonna go ahead and do our famous burrito; it’s a traditional burrito. I’m gonna sate my onions, fresh parsley flakes in there and I’m going to go ahead and use a little bit of tomato. I’m gonna go ahead and start with the beef. I don’t know about you but I like a little red wine when it comes to red meat just to give it that nice exotic flavour. It has little salt, all the natural flavours are in there. The tortillas are humongous for these burritos. I’m gonna go ahead and put a little but of beans in there then we go with the meat. I like the taste of parsley, I didn’t put in here so I’m gonna go ahead and put a little bit in there now. Then we’ll go ahead and put some mozzarella cheese and put it in. now there’s a special technique when it comes to folding a burrito because you really gotta know what you’re doing here. So we’re gonna go ahead and stretch it out, fold the ends. You fold the ends, fold it in half, fold the ends almost perfect. That is your authentic burrito.”

That’s a hefty burrito. It’s really, really, really good, as you can see. Alright guys, I’m gonna attempt to finish this burrito here today. Alright, check you out next time. Bye.

This week I want to know where I can get the best chicken wings here in Belize City. It doesn’t matter how they’re prepared as long as they’re super delicious! Text me at 625-3079.

Well I’ve gotta go now. Have a superb weekend. Bye!

If there’s an event that you want featured, give me a call at 625-3079. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday at ten p.m.
