DARIEN, Conn. – Spice up your life as the Darien Library hosts a salsa-making competition at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 14, with special guests judging salsas submitted by amateur chefs.

After the contest, Mariachi Flor de Toloache, an all-female band from New York City, will play traditional mariachi instruments – guitars, guitarrons, trumpets, vihuelas and violins.

Three judges – Kristien and Dan Del Ferraro of and Meg Spicer of the Darien News – will sample the salsa, but makers should also bring enough for the crowd to try. Chips will be provided for all.

Two $100 prizes will be given – one for adults and another for children 12 and under.

The Darien Library is located at 1441 Post Road. Call 203-655-1234 or visit the website for more information.
