If you’re looking for gift ideas for the holidays, how about a calendar with photos of beautiful covers from Quepolandia, our local magazine? Your purchase will support a good cause: Of the $10 purchase price, $1 goes to help area cats and dogs through PAWS animal welfare group. The calendar includes both Costa Rican and major U.S. holidays, and may be purchased at Dos Locos, Jaime Peligro Books and the Kids Saving the Rainforest (KSTR) souvenir store. If you buy any other items at the KSTR store, 100 percent of the proceeds go directly toward saving the rain forest. Also at the KSTR store, you can adopt a tree, rain-forest meters or a monkey bridge, or adopt and name an animal at KSTR’s rehab or sanctuary, in the name of a loved one.
Liquid Lounge now has its Monkey Bridge Tropical and Thai Restaurant open. They just completed their first anniversary and already have lots of plans in the works for the next one.
Please note that the Barefoot Church on the Beach has moved to the Hotel Mono Azul Tiki Hut, with service offered Sundays at 11:30 a.m. For more information, contact Pastor Rick Kendle at 8719-2988.
We haven’t heard of any Christmas dinners or New Year’s parties yet, so if you are planning anything, please let us know.
