Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

September 14, 2011

Hotel California has come up with an interesting weekly event: speed dating, every Saturday in September from 7 to 10:30 p.m. The event consists of five-minute rounds at 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30, with 12 women and 12 men per round. Entry is free. The hotel will offer specials on beer, cocktails and alcohol-free beverages. This is a nice way for people who don’t want to go to bars to meet a potential mate or some new friends. For more information and to sign up, call 2777-3395.

Villas Lirio has some fun events at the end of each week: live tropical romantic music on Thursdays, salsa and merengue with dance classes on Fridays, and sushi on Sundays. They also have happy hour every day from 5 to 7 p.m., with two-for-one beer and national liquors. For more information or to make reservations, call 2777-1182, email eventos@casarolandmanuelantonio.com or visit www.casaroland.com.

Quepos has a new Peruvian restaurant, Gran Inca, across from the Ramus Bar. It’s open for dinner from 6 to 10 p.m. For information, call 2777-4147. Salsipuedes Tapas Bar and Restaurant, in front of Banco Promérica in Manuel Antonio, has announced it will remain open all through low season for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
