I have been going to Casa Bonita my whole life and the next visit will be my 300th! I will celebrating with a huge event in conjunction with Casa Bonita as a fundraiser.
They will donate 20% of the food and drink income to a charity of my choice, which will be the Mariposa neighborhood’s Food Bridge International Marketplace.
The date is Sunday, February 24th from Noon to 7 p.m. (advance tickets only) and will be in conjunction with the NEXT Gallery Pretty in Pink group art show – celebrating all things Casa Bonita (opening is Friday 2/22).
You will pick up your pre-purchased tickets at NEXT Gallery Fri/Sat/Sun that weekend and an embroidered patch free for all attendees of the 300th!
NEXT Gallery is right by Casa Bonita 6851 W Colfax Ave Unit B – in the building just on the West side of Winchells. You will receive further instructions as it gets closer.
There are a TON of fun things planned – we will take over the Magic Show Theater all day with awesome things on the stage, including Mentalist Magician: Miss Claire Voyant!
I get to participate in gunfights with Black Bart and there will be puppet shows featuring a puppet of me! I am also crafting an amazing scavenger hunt!
All sorts of custom collectibles for the event will be included with different ticket levels and available for sale too! I even re-designed the old “floaty” cliff diver pens they used to have!
Special menu options for this event: Andrew’s Deluxe Dinner, sopaipilla toppings bar (first time ever) and Andrew’s Neapolitan Bandito! (chocolate/strawberry/whipped-cream)
Andrew’s Deluxe Dinner: One crispy chile relleno, a taco, two cheese enchiladas, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, beans and rice. (Free refills on everything but relleno)
There has been some great press on this event! I’ll be on Channel 2 News on Wednesday morning and Fox Daybreak on Thursday morning!
