With the celebrations of Costa Rica’s Independence Day less than a month away, bands are practicing and costumes being sewn for the parades, fiestas and beach celebrations over the nation’s freedom from Spain.
With the holiday falling on Saturday this year, all events should be bigger than usual and for many will be highlighted by a cena bailable or festive dinner at Pices Restaurant at Coco Bay on Ocatal Road. The gala, sponsored by the Lions Club, begins at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15, and costs $25 per person. For reservations call 2670-1235.
In the meantime, check out the new El Qujote restaurant on the second entrance to Hermosa. The restaurant features a light and airy atmosphere and contemporary food served inside and out in casual but stylish surroundings. El Qujote is open for dinner from 5-10 p.m. on weekdays and from 1-10 p.m. on weekends.
Make it a point to stop by the Hidden Garden Art Gallery before Sept. 14 to experience “Costa Rica Mía,” a collection of fanciful interpretations of the area by Texas transplant Susan Adams. Adams’ art intensifies what we occasionally, some of us often, see in this beautiful country, while lending an eerie feeling of realism. The gallery is open Tues.–Sat. from 10-4 p.m.
Should you have computer problems, stop by Tommy Tech Head, and have a U.S. tech service professional look at it. There’s no charge if a repair can’t be made, and most repairs are possible in one day. Tommy’s number is 8339-0009, and the store is located next to Monge in the building with the large massage sign in front.
