Cuba Nostalgia 2013: We’re there!

http://www.cubanostalgia.org/images/poster_2013.jpg
Cuba Nostalgia 2013 is here! The festivities start tomorrow and run through the weekend. And believe it or not, we were able to set up the Babalú pavilion without me shedding one single drop of blood! That must be a good omen.

As you all know, this year we celebrate Babalú's 10th Anniversary and we have some very special guests scheduled to join us this year. So, if you live in the South Florida area, head on over to Cuba Nostalgia at Tamiami Park and stop by the the Babalú booth and say hello!

Here's the confirmed lineup:

Make sure you bring your copy of the book, purchase a copy HERE, or you can buy a copy at our booth and have Silvio sign it for you. (Appearing Saturday and Sunday)
