Mardi Gras celebration organizers have announced that more than $11,000 was collected at the March 4 event. So far, funds have been spent on the following projects: repairs to the drainage system of the Brasilito medical clinic; improvements to the Potrero school, spearheaded by Abriendo Mentes; a donation toward a new look for the community center in Potrero; and a donation to the Flamingo Beach Association to go to the salary of the gardener, who does a fabulous daily cleanup job. Mardi Gras T-shirts are still available at the Mariner Inn at bargain prices.
A new family restaurant, Pura Vitali, at the old Rancho Grande in Flamingo, held a grand opening April 15 with live music by Cartagena, free Italian appetizers and happy-hour drinks. Meanwhile, in Huacas, Café de la Casa opened April 16, and offers coffee in bags, cold and hot coffee drinks and homemade ice cream. The family has been in the coffee business since 1897.
