Well ...we made it to the starting line. On Saturday Nov 25, we celebrated our grand opening in style. We had a full house, filled with beautiful people, great food, paired wines and the best Cuban dance music in Sarasota, and a spectacular vibe.
Thanks to my partner Sylvia Noguera, and our team Monica Pucheta in the bakery, Tatiana Fester on decorations and floor service, and special shout-out to Tony Ricci at the bar. In the entertainment department, Renesito Avich and Bong-Billie Galarza provided the Cuba dance music that kept everyone dancing.
So what's next? Lots more already in the works:
- Renesito Avich is coming back to #EmpaCuriousLive on Friday Dec 15th at 9PM
- Trevor Bystrom will be bringing his acoustic/island sounds on Sunday Dec 17th, 12 PM-2PM to kick off our brunch series.
- Ari McMannus (yeah, that Ari, from the Alibis), is coming to #EmpaCuriousLive in the next few weeks.
Look for an events page on our website in the next 1-2 weeks.
