US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went dancing during this weekend's Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia. 

Clinton and a few members of her entourage slipped out to Cafe Havana, a Cuban-themed club where they were spotted sipping on Colombian beer and dancing in the wee hours of Sunday morning. 

Cafe Havana is one of Cartegena's "most authentic and coolest nightspots," according to The New York Times. It's known for its mojitos. But it's an interesting choice for a diplomat from one of only two nations that continue to oppose Cuba's inclusion in future summits.

Agence France-Presse grabbed a photo of Clinton dancing with a Havana sign in the background and another of her drinking a Colombian beer. Clinton opted for Aguila, a popular local bargain brand, in a bottle.

Clinton, who was at an official dinner until after midnight, had "a lot" of fun, a State Department official told Reuters.

Cuba was among the most decisive issues at this weekend's meeting of leaders from nearly three dozen countries in the Americas. But US Secret Service agents and military personnel who were partying with prostitutes - at least one of whom may have had to fight fight to get paid - have grabbed the most headlines.
