Flamingo/Potrero News

December 23, 2010

At a fundraiser dinner at the Bahía del Sol in Surfside Dec. 10, Las Catalinas Project raised enough money to buy schoolbooks for more than 100 students in Potrero, Tempate and Huacas.

Mar y Sol is back and better than ever. The restaurant reopened Dec. 13 just in time for the holidays. It’s open seven days a week; for reservations, call 2654-4151.

The theatrical production of “Snow White” presented by Beach Nuts Theatre Company and Amigos de la Educación was a huge success. Every seat at the Tamarindo Diria amphitheater had a great view. Homemade desserts and beverages were sold to raise money for local education. The cast and crew did a great job: Flamingo resident Olivia Goodloe played the dwarf Happy, Surfside resident Avery Wilson was Bashful, and his sister Camyrn made a special appearance as a young lady in adoration of the handsome prince.

The Blues Fest at Oki Doki B&B Dec. 11 was an outstanding event with good music, friends, food and different vendors selling their wares. The same groups played again on Sunday night at Marie’s.

The nonprofit CEPIA had a great turnout for its Christmas Dream program and received a lot of donations for local kids. The group plans to deliver the gifts Thursday and Friday before closing its office for the holidays.

Kelly Maxwell, owner of Maxwell’s in Surfside, is offering free classes to local children on making and decorating Christmas cookies today from noon to 1 p.m. Kelly is also offering a one-hour cooking class with various chefs at the restaurant Thursday evenings from 5 to 6 p.m. For more information, call 2654-4319.
