Cala Moresca, the gourmet fusion restaurant at Cala Luna Hotel in Langosta, has initiated a Flavors of the World & Cava Tasting every Friday, with a percentage of the sales donated to CEPIA. Each Friday, there is a different menu theme. Today is Rice of the World, Oct. 12 will be Maghreb Couscous, Oct. 19 will be Pasta Fever and Oct. 26 will be Paella de Valencia. The cost is $30 per person, and a free cava tasting will be held from 7-8 p.m. Reservations are suggested; call 2653-0214.

Amigos de la Educacion and Bridgestone organized a safety program, where first through third graders in Guanacaste learned the best way to be safe on the streets, ride the school bus and be responsible pedestrians. Bridgestone, the major sponsor, provided the Amigos volunteers with educational materials that taught about safety through games and activities. Participants included 144 students from Escuela Villareal, 44 students from Escuela La Garita and 19 students from Escuela El Ilanito. Amigos de la Educacion is planning to reach at least 1,000 more grade school students from Santa Rosa, Huacas, Portegolpe, Cartegena, La Garita Vieja and Matapalo. For more, contact rettel@amigoseducacion.org or call 2653-1945.

People around town have been asking how they can vote in the United States presidential election. It’s simple. All U.S. citizens living here must register to vote in an election year. You must do this before you can vote, regardless of whether you are already registered in the States. Then, you can fill out an absentee ballot and send it in. To do both of these things, go to www.votefromabroad.org, fill out the forms and send them in. If you have  questions, contact Nelleke A. Bruyn at 2279-3553.

A couple of weeks ago, I was touting the virtues of the Voodoo Lounge. Well, since then, the club has closed and is under construction for another venture. Word is the place will reopen as a dinner theater. Stay tuned for more details.
