The Domestic Animal Welfare Group (D.A.W.G.) Tales Lending Library just received two donations, adding close to 1,000 books to our already-extensive inventory. One donation involved feng shui and extraterrestrials, the other beefed up the fiction section.

Please stop by and pick up a book and a dog and cat to go with it. All our animals are street rescues and are treated for parasites, vaccinated and spayed/neutered.

Hurricane Hawk will appear at Roadhouse 169, Uvita, on June 23, for two shows at 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Since 1994, Hurricane Hawk has been entertaining with his version of Florida jump blues and swing. He is known for catchy lyrics and explosive harmonica, and has performed from California to Florida and abroad.

A favorite at concerts and clubs, Hawk will be on his second tour of Costa Rica. He was a finalist in the world-renowned International Blues Challenge held yearly in Memphis, Tennessee, and he has performed at national blues festivals and opened for the likes of Little Richard, Alabama, Big Bill Morgenfeld and Tinsley Ellis.

Tino and Uwe are spicing up the area with their new butcher shop, featuring homemade, German smoked meats and sausages, bratwurst, sauerkraut and marinades. They carry fresh meats including lamb and accept special orders at 2787-0219. Visit them on the road from Dominical to San Isidro in Platanillo.

Ben Jammin’ and the Howlers will play Friday, June 22, at 7:30 p.m. at Roca Verde Hotel and Restaurant in Dominical. The Howlers – Ben Orton on guitar and vocals, Nancy Buchan on five-string violin and vocals, Larry Sanchez on bass and Richard Abraham on drums – will also play at the annual Fourth of July Lifeguard Benefit on Sunday, July 1 at Roca Verde.

There will be a classical music quartet presentation with Nancy Buchan on violin, Kim Fergus on piano and two of their music students on violin and cello. Along with great entertainment, there will be raffles, auctions and food. Mark your calendars for this special event. Our lifeguards are supported only by your donations.
