Do you ever get bummed out during the winter and wish it was summer? We do too! So we have the answer... On March 2nd, Abreo is hosting a CARIBBEAN BEACH PARTY! Not only will we have Caribbean food inspired by our very own Karen Sletten, we will have live music from Tony Brown! Tony has performed all over the world. He includes a wide range of styles from old school Blues, R&B, Soul, Ska, Reggae, Jazz, Funk, and Latin flavors. Check out his music on the link included with this post!
We want you to bust out those flip flops that you have anxiously wanted to wear. Oh and don't forget to put on one of those bad vacation shirts that you still question why you even bought it! If you have never attended an Abreo party, I suggest you join us for this one. We may have a few tricks up our sleeve, which you may not find out until the party begins. Keep an eye out for more details!
