On Monday, west-siders can celebrate Valentine’s Day itself at Longhorn Bar and Grill from 6 onward at an evening of wine tasting featuring an extraordinary array of expensive wines and special seafood bocas. The cost is $25 a person or $40 a couple. Make your reservations at 5corners grill@gmail.com.

Fuentes Verdes Ecological Association elected new officers at its annual general membership meeting at the Hotel Tilawa Jan. 29. Taking up the presidential gavel is Ed Yurica. Other board members are Ed Wood, Richard Springarn, Virginia Lamont, Carla Veltman, Irene Lovitz and outgoing president Patricia Brenes. In attendance was Fuentes Verdes member Zen Moisey, developer of Arenal Maleku Condominiums, who has subsequently invited Fuentes Verdes members to attend his own board meeting at the Maleku project on March 5 at 2 p.m., to learn about “… the fulfillment of the requirements demanded by the government of Costa Rica.” Moisey wrote in his invitation that the “… project goes ahead and is totally legal.” Those wishing to attend are asked to contact marbeth@cantico.ca
