While we normally focus on the Reading Series we wanted to broadcast a special announcement. Tamale Hut Café celebrates its five year anniversary this Saturday January 22nd. So come on out, help celebrate, have some birthday cake and see Frank Rico’s art opening. (You can check out his Flickr stream at the bottom right-hand side of the page.) Here’s a excerpt from Jaime and Lizet Flores’s announcement :
“It has been an amazing five years … We have introduced a variety of Tamales and unique sides like Tinga and Albondiga soup. But THC did not just stop there, we have capitalized on our unique space and relationships and introduced a monthly reading series called “Tamale Hut Cafe’ Presents” and have featured over 45 readers and countless open mic readers. I would like to thank Jenny Seay for developing and coordinating the readings. Also, to Bernie Cox for developing our new reading blog.
We have showcased 22 artists on our gallery wall [, including Frank Rico this Saturday, giving] them an opportunity to show and sell their art. We have also had a few musical performances. Tamale Hut Cafe is so much more that a “Tamale Joint” — it’s a cultural destination.
Finally, thank those of you who are customers in Tamale Hut Cafe’. THC could not have done this without your continued support.
Look forward to the next five years. Jaime / Lizet”
Hope to see you there!
