Beautifull interiors, Cuban music and their own rum label, Pedro Mandinga has opened at Portal de Caldas, right in front of Villa Agustina. Loved to see the small distillary at the entrance and three aging rum barrils. A great place to hang out, order some entrees, and try their cocktails, many of which include the house rum (even the main dishes).
On Sunday we went to the raw vegan workshop by Aris LaTham at Mahalo. Impresive! We had a wonderful time, and learned a lot. The best: we got to share the beautiful and delicious results with the group!
Congratulations to Ema from Mahalo for putting this together! and thanks so much to Mr. Aris LaTham, this workshop left everyone nurtured and inspired!
On July 27th, Casa Soldado will host an interesting talk about the archeology and history of the first community of free black men in America. It will be in Spanish, on July 27th, at 6:30 p.m. By Tomás Mendizabal.
It has been said so many times, but it is so absolutely true: what you put in your body matters. Well, it also has to look good and taste good, and be easy to make, and easy to get ingredients…. oh my! the list is long!
But don´t worry, here is a great way to get you inspired. I started reading Aris La Tham bio and what he has in his website and looked amazing. CLICK HERE to check it out, and if you like what you see… come to the workshop!
Flash news for everyone! Patrimonio Histórico, the government agency that regulates all renovations in Casco has extended the Casco incentives for two more years. This is effective as per the 1st of July.
So proud of the Enlaces kids! In June, one of their students, José, was invited to participate in Danza Juvenil Opus 1 at Eslovenia. José travelled with his teacher José Leonardo Amaya, and on the way they passed by Paris.
If you are not familiar with Enlaces, this is Fundación Calicanto´s after school dance program that focuses on kids from Casco Viejo and Chorrillo. They have a nice group of young kids who already started to perform and some of the more advanced ones have tried their own choreographies and have participated in major productions on stage.
I was passing by Calle 5ta, and peaked into El Cuarto Rojo´s aerial dancing session. Usually they have fabric hanging from the ceiling, this time they were on harnesses. What this allows them to do is to move all around with freedom, doing some 360 degree crazy stuff. Loved it!

I learned a new word: Mahalo. In Hawaiian it means ” thanks, gratitude, admiration, praise, esteem, regards, or respects”. Now we have our own Casco style “Mahalo”, located on A Avenue, next to UnderCover boots, right after 5th and A, by Madrigal. Yes, we do give a lot of landmarks, that´s how our system works!
Last night´s soft opening had a really good vibe. Mahalo will offer fresh food, pilates and yoga classes. They´ll be offering deconstructed sushi, burritos, and salads to go. Soft spot for me: they´ll give you the jars, so you can bring them back and refill. Less waste! love it.
They also have cold press juices, and sauces made by chef José Carles from Donde José. The food is perfect for a healthy breakfast and lunch, for dinner they´ll also offer tapas, beer and wine. The garden at the back is a really nice hang out.
