Cuba Nostalgia Weekend

We’re approximately 60 hours away from the start of Cuba Nostalgia 2010, and I can guarantee it’s going to be a great time! Not only does this weekend mark the 30th anniversary of the Mariel boatlift (with an apropos exhibit on display during the entire event), but they are honoring the late great Beny More.

Cuba Nostalgia opens on Friday, May 21st from 11am-11pm. Friday is also our dear Marta's birthday. Marta and Amy will be in town, and we’re celebrating Marta’s birthday at Havana Vieja on Friday night. Everybody’s invited!

Saturday, Day 2 of Cuba Nostalgia, is also the day the World March for Cuban Freedom takes place. If you’re in Miami, attend the walk at SW 8th Street and 13th Avenue at noon. Afterwards, come visit us at Cuba Nostalgia.  If you’re not in town, click here for a list of marches near you.

Saturday also happens to be my little sister’s birthday. Since Val and the rest of the Babalu family can’t come to her party, the party is coming to Cuba Nostalgia. We will spend most of the day at CN, followed by a late night celebration to see one of my sister’s favorite bands play at a local bar.

Sunday is the final day of CN, and your last chance to visit all your favorite contributors at the Babalu pavilion. Stick around and watch Andy Alfonso y La Orquestra Clase A jam at 5pm.

Family and friends (and two birthdays!), great Cuban food and drink, lots of nostalgia, and wonderful music, including El Beny….can you think of a better way to spend the weekend?
