Coco Capsule

June 20, 2012

The overcast days of an early green season have left many of us up in the air in terms of what to do with spare time. Sunning at the beach is certainly out, as is hanging clothes out to dry. So try some of these:

Go out to dinner. Luperon has made arrangements with  several of the area’s best restaurants to provide free corkage on selected wines sold at the grocery. The offer is good at Las Olas on Wednesdays, Citron on Thursdays, Café de Playa on Fridays and Ginger on Saturdays. This promotion will continue through the end of July.

See new art. Hermán Pérez’s “Eyes of the Soul” is on display at the Hidden Garden Art Gallery through August 1.

Take a class. Pacífico Beach Club has popular cooking classes with chef Guillermo Vindas. On June 25, the 6-8 p.m. class will focus on Asian cooking. The cost is $32 and reservations can be made at 2670-2217.

Take a hike. Despite the mud, this weather is perfect to explore any of the area’s national parks on foot. And given the number of spas and restaurants hidden in the hills, any one of the day trips you choose will satisfy.
