A special evening to benefit Los Mangos Public Library has just been announced, to take place at Las Palomas in Marina Vallarta (Nima Bay) on Thursday, May 16, starting at 6:30 pm. A special, $120 peso menu with three choices (pasta, chile relleno, and burrito with salad) will be offered. Live music and other surprises will liven the evening to benefit Los Mangos Public Library, an important, independently funded artistic and cultural resource in Puerto Vallarta. Las Palomas will graciously donate 50% of all of the evenings’ proceeds to Los Mangos.

Also at Los Mangos this weekend, a special artistic event, Espontáneo 2013 will create additional awareness of the library’s ongoing commitment to participate in the artistic development of our destination. Organized by Melissa Castillo, Espontáneo (spontaneous) will showcase the artistic talents of over two dozen artists (performers, musicians, painters, poets, etc.) who will celebrate the unpredictable by creating spontaneously on site. “There is something magical that takes place when an artist ‘lets go,’ allowing for unrestrained creativity to take place,” commented Castillo in a press conference. Those present will also be encouraged to participate.

Espontáneo 2013 will take place at Los Mangos on Saturday, May 19, at 7 pm.
