Zapien’s Salsa Grill held a morning fiesta with DJ J9 from radio station Hot 92.3 on Friday March 8. The event started at 7 a.m. and continued into J9’s morning show, “J9 On the Streets.” The Salsa Grill had a great turnout filling its entire dining room with patrons eager for good food, music and fun. Everyone in attendance was given a cup of Zapien’s highly popular Menudo or Pozole for free. Zapien’s also provided an array of drinks including fresh-made coffee and Micheladas.
DJ J9, also known as Jimmy Reyes, interacted with the guests and provided R&B and “old school” tunes, which aired live on Hot 92.3. Prizes large and small, including Salsa Grill giveaways were raffled off. One lucky goer won a pair of tickets to see Alicia Keys live in concert at the Staples Center. Tickets for stand-up comedian, Chris Tucker were also raffled off. People from as far as Santa Maria came to enjoy the event and try Zapien’s food for the first time. Zapien’s proved it knew how to spice up a Friday morning.
