Tamarindo Talk

August 13, 2010

The Beach Nuts Theatre Company, which put on a successful “Peter Pan” production just a few months ago, is holding auditions for its 2010 holiday play this weekend. Callbacks will be next week. For more information, e-mail Paul Bollanger at acting_always@yahoo.ca.

Ezequiel Marinoni and Mauricio de Sostoa have opened El Garito tapas bar in the ABC building next to Le Petit Café.

They held a grand opening party last week that brought out the town. Since both proprietors are DJs, lots of good music is the backdrop for the good food here.

More good food can be had at Christine Clémençon’s La Crepería near Licorera Cristal, opposite PacificPark. She serves French crepes with a wide choice of sweet and savory fillings, every day except Monday for lunch and Thursday to Saturday for dinner.

The Tamarindo Beach Marathon returns to town for the fourth time Sept. 11, beginning at 5 a.m. With national and international participants, the marathon is 42.2 kilometers and also features 21.1 km and 10 km events and a 400-meter children’s race called Tamarindo Kids. The big race, however, starts and finishes in Tamarindo and runs through Villarreal, Matapalo, Huacas and Brasilito. More than 800 runners have participated in the marathon in the past, with the same number or more expected this year. For more information, visit www.tamarindobeachmarathon.com.
