Lots of comings and goings happening this week and next at the Paradise Community Center. For one thing the fabulous Banderas Bay Jazz Allstars will be lighting up our Paradise stage this coming Friday night (7th) at 8 pm but they are taking Valentine’s Day off, which is NEXT Friday the 14th so if you and your hot date were planning to come and listen to one of the finest amalgamations of professional musicians in Mexico then you had best be here this week!
And the 21st, too. The guys want to spend time with their wives which is lovely but, we will miss them.
Also friends and fellow Saturday Market vendors, Bill Kelly and Alejandro, will now be in their new home in Ajiic. We send them along on their new journey with love and big hugs.
Tuesday Movie Night is in its fourth year at the PCC and starting the end of the third week of February the Democrats Abroad will be ADDING all the movies that are nominated for Academy Awards culminating in a Gala Oscar Night event complete with red carpet.
It’ll be a blast and if anyone has some extra time please see Joy and volunteer to help with the myriad of details.
The Blonde Gypsies will be performing next Wednesday the 19th on the Paradise stage.
They are so delightful to hear and watch how they celebrate their loves of each other, their music and their lives; still nomads after all these years!
Someone new is coming! She is Canadian (we like her already!), from Vancouver, B.C. and will be in concert on the Paradise stage Sunday, February 9th at 5 pm. Her last recording was done in Nashville.
Her name is Jeannette Petkau, contemporary Christian singer and songwriter.
Proceeds from ticket sales will go to Compassionet Children’s Home I wrote about last week. It takes a village…so help us please and enjoy Jeannette’s inspirational music. Make sure if you just got HERE from THERE to drop by the Saturday Co-op Market and say hi to me and all the rest of the gang who have been holding down the fort while you’ve been shoveling snow.
Ha Ha! Oops, sorry. Seriously, we really look forward to returning Snowbirds – we are like a family at Market and it’s so good to have more pieces to fill in our puzzle called Vallarta.
Only two more chances to see Bedazzled Broadway! This Saturday night the 8th and the final curtain will be February 15th. I will truly miss seeing and hearing everyone in the superb cast.
Another GREAT thing coming up on February 27th! The Garden Club is throwing a BIG party in a BIG house named Casa Chickie. I swear you can see Japan the view is so incredible from this villa!
The cocktail party is to raise money for our upcoming INTERNATIONAL Bugambilia Festival this May 9, 10 and 11. Tickets are only $400 pesos and you can buy them from me.
Get involved in making Vallarta even more beautiful by supporting the Garden Club and do come to our next meeting here at the PCC on Thursday Feb 20th at 11 am.
Help a tourist out today and every day they are here enjoying our city. We need them to leave yearning to return. Ciao.
The Paradise Community Center, Pulpito 127, between Olas Altas and Amapas Streets in Old Town Puerto Vallarta smack in the middle of the Romantic Zone (aka The Theatre District…repeat after me…)
