FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pop Up Girl’s monthly event offers wide variety of local vendors hawking jewelry, soaps, candles, vegan delights and more; Nancy to offer cocktails, bites, cash prize for best costume
Miami, FL – October 9, 2019 – Arroz Con Mango literally translates to rice with mango. Its Cuban colloquial meaning is a sticky, messy situation. The monthly marketplace that has been happening at Bar Nancy (2007 SW 8 Street, Miami, 33135) for the last six months is only partially sticky. Mostly a well-oiled operation that offers the chance to shop some local wares, attendees can also listen to live music, sip on some of Little Havana’s craftiest cocktails, and chow on some delectable eats. This month, the party will be Halloween themed, and again be free and feature Birdman’s Clambake.
“Arroz Con Mango was conceived as a tribute to my Cuban/Mexican background,” says event founder Francis Weiner. “Miami is a melting pot, and as a result is un arroz con mango. I have always had a deep connection with my culture, music, and the arts, and I am an immense supporter of local vendors. ACM was my opportunity to bring something to the community where I could bring people together from different backgrounds to merge and enjoy themselves through art and music, all while supporting Miami locals.”
Some past vendors include: Mad Element, Orange Postman, Jay’s Beard Oil, Le Chic Miami, Hot Sauce Shero, Candles by Janet, A&C Accessories and Designs, Cloudnine Boutique, Essencia Air, Wearlovehope, Guavette Shop, Pin Pan Pun the Cubanisms book, The Creamy Creations, Natural Buzz (CBD), and Powerful _Divine crystals.
Open since 2017, Bar Nancy’s theme is colonial-era nautical, its insides mimicking the galley of the famous namesake ship. A daily happy hour offers half-priced drinks 4 to 7 p.m. The bar offers a sizable selection of draft and canned beers, as well as specialty cocktails and classic bar eats. Mondays are game and trivia nights; each month the bar resurrects the popular South Beach and Grove haunt The Kitchen Club. An outside patio with seating is available. Juan Turros hosts a recurring songwriter’s night series.
Clambake features virtuoso guitar playing by Sean Gould (who is also Bar Nancy’s lead sound engineer) backed by a powerful rhythm section of Monchy Coruguedo on drums and Michael Mut on bass. They serve up a mix of blues with classic rock and a side of kitsch. The band’s repertoire varies from show to show, includes a fair amount of improvisations, and ranges from 50s staples to classics from the 60s and 70s.
