An update on Mazatlán’s El Recreo

A lot has been happening over at El Recreo.  I bet you’d like an update – and maybe would like to know what you can do to help. At the top of the page is a picture of the exterior and I’ve pasted on the new logo.  Isn’t it nice?  We are getting bids on signage, hopefully it will be up soon. The picture below is of the Molika @ El Recreo coffee shop space – they are still waiting...

It was a great night of music…

The 2011 Dia de la Musica was a great success!  We enjoyed ourselves and saw some wonderful performances and a fun art exhibit, too!  The picture at the top was from the art exhibit a la vuelta de Venus – on the corner of Venus and callejón del Lazo.  I’ve also made a photo album with more pictures, here.
