Portuguese Festa! With Dinner, Music & Show At Casa Verde – December 1, 2017

Festa2

If you missed out on the rather funny 2016 Vancouver Fringe Festival Show Festa!, you are in luck it’s back for one night only Friday, December 1, 2017.   This show was created by two Portuguese ladies, Maria J. Cruz and Sandra Medeiros. Maria and Sandra grew up in East Van and met at Charles Tupper Secondary School. They have fond memories of growing up in East Van, but felt there was a bit of stigma living in East Van, which made them tough, scrappy and resourceful. We think this applies to many of us that grew up in East Van. We once asked Maria and Sandra what they loved most about growing up in a Portuguese family. “The food was always amazing! We have the ability to laugh and joke around, even when you don’t have much. Knowing that your family is fiercely protective and will always have your back. Portuguese families are tight knit and loving, even while driving you crazy!”  Now getting back to the food, like many cultures, this is a big part of theirs and experiencing the food is part of the Portuguese Festa happening December 1st. The dinner and show takes place at Casa Verde located at 3532 Commercial Street just off the Victoria Diversion and steps away from the Commercial Street Café. The evening includes a 3 course dinner, an entertaining show and live music. Tickets are $50 and available through Eventbrite.
