No Way José!, recently named Vallarta’s “Best Overall Restaurant,” and “The Best Moderate Restaurant” in VirtualVallarta.com's annual Readers' Choice Poll invites you to join them for a very festive holiday evening to help raise funds for the Los Mangos Library, to take place on Wednesday, December 21, from 5 to 7:30 pm.

Guests will be greeted by a complimentary welcome cocktail and can select from a special cocktail and appetizer menu featuring mango-themed items. A percentage of the proceeds from the special menu will go directly to Los Mangos. Guests can also help decorate their special mango tree! Design your own ornament from their pre-printed mangos and add a variety of fun glitter, sprinkles and doo-dads to make the ornament your own creation. Ornaments will be available for purchase; 1 for $50 pesos or 3 for $100 pesos. 100% of proceeds from the ornament sales will go to Los Mangos. And as a special treat, the cast of the upcoming Boutique Theater production of “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” will be performing some holiday numbers and will lead a fun sing-a-long. No Way José!’s full bar and menu will also be available with all of your NWJ! favorites.  Special discounts do not apply to special events.

One of the best cultural assets in Puerto Vallarta is the Biblioteca Los Mangos (Los Mangos Library), located on Francisco Villa Avenue not far from Costco.  The library is open to the public and has a large selection of books in Spanish and in English. The library also offers an extensive list of courses including ballet, piano, and painting at very reasonable prices. The best way to find out what is being offered is to visit the library, which features a bulletin board at the entrance with postings for all of the courses and activities. Also, many of the library’s events, classes, and cultural activities are listed on the library’s informational blog at http://biblioteca-los-mangos.blogspot.com. The library truly offers something for everyone and is worth your support.
No Way José! is located at 5 de Febrero 260 in Colonia Emiliano Zapata, just over the I. Vallarta street bridge on your left heading south from the Malecón. Reservations for this special event are highly recommended, available by calling 223-2853 or by e-mailing reservations@nowayjosemx.com.
