Tamarindo Talk

February 21, 2013

A new kind of entertainment is coming to Tamarindo next month from Mixed Nuts, an outgrowth of the popular children’s production company, Beach Nuts. The promised dinner theater at Fisch Restaurant will debut over the weekends of March 15  and March 22 with the two-act play “The Odd Couple.” 

Directed by Joy Weber and starring Paul Belanger as Oscar Madison, the slob, and Rick Casorla as Felix, the neat freak, the play focuses on the duo’s meeting and subsequent hijinks. Other parts will be played by David Rubin, Barry Lawson, Scott Barry, Margaret Nevins and Dee Condly.

Enjoy a lovely meal from the chef at Fisch beginning at 6 p.m., with the play to follow at 8 p.m. Tickets, which run $39.95 per person (group rates available) can be found at Fisch’s Restaurant or Jaime Peligro Bookstore. If you need more information or want to make a reservation, email rosiedb@gmail.com or call 2653-0100.  

There’s a plastic surgeon in town for those looking for a little freshening up. Dr. Eduardo Villalobos offers Botox, fillers, mini-lifts, eyelid surgery, dermatological surgery and anti-aging skin care. He has a laser center for hair, tattoo and varicose vein removal. Villalobos’ partner, Dr. Marcia Porras Zamora, is a cosmetic dentist that will do aesthetic restorations, whitening, implants and orthodontia work. You will find the Health & Beauty Clinic on the road to Flamingo next door to ICE. Call 2653-6353 for appointments or information.

A British friend told me that The Dog’s Bollocks, located where in the former Carolina’s Restaurant spot, is an authentic fish-n-chips place. Get the fish-n-chips with real malt vinegar, served in newspaper – La Nacion! They even have a deep-fried Snickers on the menu. Yum!
