Bar Nancy Celebrates Grand Opening April 15

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Bar Nancy Brings Craft Cocktail Artistry to Little Havana

Nautically-themed venue features hand-made bar, fixtures and is mixology-driven; grand opening celebration scheduled for April 15
Miami, FL – April 5, 2017 – Named after the Nancy, the doomed Revolutionary supply ship that was supposedly the first ship to hoist an American flag in a foreign port, Little Havana’s newest craft cocktail establishment Bar Nancy is dry docked at 2007 SW 8th Street. Already serving thirsty landlubbers, a grand opening celebration will take place Saturday, April 15, 2017 featuring the Spam AllstarsThe Woodwork (formerly the Wholetones), and JUke. Doors open at 5 p.m., and complimentary cocktails will be served from 7 to 9 p.m. Music begins at 8 p.m.

“We put a lot of stock into every last detail, from the décor to our drink ingredients, and authenticity is a big part of our appeal,” says co-owner and managing partner Sasha-Alexandre Torres. “Our award-winning bar tenders put their all into the creation and execution of our drink menu, and I’m confident our patrons will taste the difference.” There are no fountain guns behind the bar, and no artificial sweeteners are ever used. The place even has its own sugar cane press for simple syrups. ”

The vibe is colonial-era nautical, and once you’ve entered, the sense is one is in the galley of a ship. With wood-lined walls, tables and chairs, a natural essence is prevalent. Drink names like “Over the Barrel”, “Peg Leg”, and “Siren Song” play right into the theme.  Nancy offers a sizable selection of draft and canned beers. There is an assortment of appetizers, sandwiches and desserts available, and an outside patio with seating.

Co-founder Ben Koufopoulos, a quintessential bar-man and a sought-after commodity in the cocktail world, has been an integral part of team-building for some of Miami’s most successful bars and restaurants, including The Purdy LoungeBurger and Beer Joint, The StageWill CallPB Station, and Pawnbroker. He has worked with and trained with some of America’s top chefs: Emeril LegassiJonathan EissmanMichael SwartzNorman Van Aken, and Jose Mendin. He and his father Tom Koufopoulos are largely responsible for all the woodwork, even recreating the Nancy stern to act as the bar back.

Torres also co-founded the now-closed The Stage Miami located in the Design District, where he conceptualized and managed day-to-day activities, and he currently assists in producing live musical events via DNA Entertainment and nationally distributed films with Via Verita and Ratpac Entertainment.

Yet another key Nancy crew member is Derek Stilmann, F.I.U. and Pubbelly Restaurant Group alumni, where he went on to design and create the cocktail program at notable bars like PawnBroker.

This initial group have created the venue’s cocktail, beer, wine, and food menus. Collectively, they have been involved in live music and sports bars, fine dining restaurants and high-volume mixology bars, and each have held all front and back of house positions, from busboy to general manager.

Bar Nancy hosts a happy hour every day from 5 to 8 p.m., and they are open every day until 2 a.m., Fridays and Saturdays until 3 a.m. There will be a regular live music schedule in place soon, and there is never a cover. 21 and over are welcome.

Guanabanas’ Executive Chef Vinny Trupia Tends El Sol Community Center Garden

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 Guanabanas’ Executive Chef Vinny Trupia TendsEl Sol Community Center Garden

Island Restaurant & Bar donates time and 100% of harvest to Jupiter’s neighborhood resource center, a haven for the area’s day laborers

Jupiter, FL – April 5, 2017 – In addition to being known for a delectable menu loaded with fresh and locally-sourced food items, Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar also hosts monthly “Give Back Thursday” events that help fund local families and charities in need. Now, in partnership with Jupiter’s El Sol Community Center, Guanabanas’ top chef Vinny Trupia has taken on another green venture to assist those from the area who need it most: he’s managing one of the community garden plots in Guanabanas’ name that grows and donates its entire yield to feed hungry locals at the center.

“El Sol provides a great community service to our town, and any opportunity to help is an honor not only for us as a local business, but for me as an individual,” says Vice President / General Manager Jon Sullivan. “Jupiter did not have a community garden prior to El Sol’s efforts, and we are proud to lend a hand to make it bigger and better.”

A graduate of the Florida Culinary Institute, cooking is in Trupia’s blood. His father worked as a restaurant chef in Florida, New York and California, and as a child, the young Vinny would watch his grandmother prep and cook Sunday family meals, old-school Italian style. His career has seen him man many of the positions he now oversees, from dishwasher to sous chef to executive chef.

Now in his current position, he inspires the same work ethic in his crew that was required of him to in order to climb the kitchen ranks. A Lawton, OK native, Trupia’s specialties are American and Italian cuisines, and since joining the Guanabanas team in 2008, he has honed his skills in traditional Caribbean and Latin cuisines, with an emphasis on fresh Florida seafood.

El Sol is a safe, organized, indoor space that facilitates the hiring of day laborers. Workers registered in their labor program fulfilled more than 14,000 job requests for local employers in 2016. Adults are provided English classes, and vocational, financial literacy, and computer training, as well as Spanish literacy instruction. El Sol also provides referrals for medical care, legal advice from volunteer attorneys, in addition to the fruits and vegetables grown on its grounds.

Guanabanas is located at 960 North Highway A1A Jupiter, FL 33477. For more information, please visit www.Guanabanas.com or call 561.747.8878.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

19th Annual Afro Roots World Music Festival Features Salif Keita April 7 and Vieux Farka Touré April 22

Both events to be held at North Beach Bandshell, with the Touré show dovetailing into the TransAtlantic Music Festival

Miami Beach, FL – March 21, 2017 – As one of South Florida’s longest-running musical events, the Afro Roots World Music Festival presents some of the most exciting pan-African musicians and celebrates the spread and evolution of the Dark Continent’s culture. This year, the festival’s 19th, performances are spread out over two weekends at the North Beach Bandshell (7275 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33141) and feature the “Golden Voice of Africa” Salif Keita on Friday, April 7, followed by the “Jimi Hendrix of the Sahara” Vieux Farka Touré Saturday, April 22.

Originally a percussionist, he switched to guitar and has enjoyed a successful career as a solo artist, spanning 12 years and nine releases, he latest being 2015’s Touristes, a collaboration with American singer-songwriter Julia Easterlin
