The powerful Aztec civilization believed that the first generation of its people were devoured by jaguars, the second by great winds, the third by great fires, the forth by floods and that they 5th generation would end with the destruction of the sun! To prevent the sun from being destroyed the Aztec made sacrifices to the Sun God – Tonatiuh and this ritual ensured that the sun would never be extinguished.
In the center of the Aztec Sun Stone / Calendar you will find, “Tonatiuh” surrounded by symbols of the 4 previously extinguished civilizations and his 2 giant “jaguar” like claws holding in their grasp human hearts!!! We will not be sacrificing anyone tonight however we invite you to take a journey through the incredible regional flavors of Mexico and allow your taste buds to be challenged with bold yet tasty combinations of the FLAVAS of Mexico and Latin America.
