El Coconuts Beach Club Potrero reopened this month, as did its sister restaurant in Tamarindo, Coconuts Tamarindo. El Coconuts Beach Club Potrero opened June 10 with live music provided by Local Legend. The Shack also had a special feature: a live performance by Los Dos on June 8 at 7 p.m. For good meals and karaoke night on Tuesdays, check out Maxwell’s Café and Bar in Surfside. 

Potrero Las Brisas has ladies’ night on Wednesdays, with DJs playing salsa, merengue, rock, reggae and electronic music. Each week there is a different DJ. 

English-language school Abriendo Mentes celebrated its three-year anniversary last Friday in the Salón Comunal in Potrero. The celebration was open to the community and included song and dance performances by students and volunteers. Dinner and a cake were donated by Bahía del Sol, Hotel Sugar Beach, Las Catalinas, Villas Estival, Las Brisas and Super Catalinas in Potrero.

Abriendo Mentes opened on June 8, 2009, with 15 students and one English class. It now operates with more than 200 participants and four focus programs with locations in Potrero and Basilito. Visit www.abriendomentes.org for more information or www.facebook.com/abriendomentes to see photos of the anniversary celebration.

When heading to the San José area, look for the first ever Starbucks store. Starbucks has partnered with Corporación de Franquicias Americanas to open the Costa Rica location on Avenida Escazú. The store will stay open every day until 11 p.m. Starbucks currently operates more than 560 stores across Latin America and employs about 8,050 people.
