The Association of Neighbors and Businessmen of Colonia Emiliano Zapata (Asociacion De Vecinos Y Empresarios Viejo Vallarta), is hosting their Fifth Annual International Dinner Show on Saturday, November 14th starting at 7 pm at the popular La Iguana Restaurant and Club in Old Town.
Celebrating their five years as a group whose purpose is to make Viejo Vallarta a better place in all aspects, there will be as the previous four years, more than ample delicious food from participating restaurants from Old Town as well as spectacular entertainment from La Voz Sensacional De Chihuahua, Chihuahua Damiana Con Banda, Voces del Mar, Mikki Prost, “Bums on Broadway”, and Ann Marie from the Santa Barbara Theater among others.
Be prepared, as I found out a few years ago, for a long night full of great food, drink and entertainment. True to the Mexican culture, if one gets there at 11 pm, the party will seem like it’s just getting started. The Association is best known for the many large painted maps of Old Town in different strategic locations that direct tourists to all locations of interest, whether they are members of the association or not. Many responses I have heard were that the maps were informative and valuable to those that utilized them.
Tickets are only $300 pesos for the entire evening that will have many restaurants setting up large samples of their house specialties that keep getting replenished throughout the night. For more information, call locally 223-2102, or one can email viejovallarta (at) hotmail.com.
Tickets can also be purchased at Restaurant El Brujo, Papeleria Limon, Restaurant El Torito, Restaurant San Lucas, Teatro Santa Barbara, Restaurant River Café, Restaurant El Calamar Aventurero, Hotel Ana Liz, Mundo de Azulejo, Restaurant Los Arbolitos or Talleres de La Fuente.
Come out and enjoy the great food and entertainment and if you can’t find the locations to buy a ticket, just look it up on one of the many maps in Old Town.
