Costa Rica News – As Thursday night’s publish will be in essence our weekend edition we will give a run down of a few events happening in Costa Rica in different areas that we think our readers might enjoy attending. This is by no means all the weekend events but ones that appeal to our curiosity or excitement bug.
Friday, May 3rd Costa Rica Events
The Little Theatre Group “God of Carnage” – The Little Theatre Group of Costa Rica will present “God of Carnage,” a 90-minute production about the struggles of four parents trying to resolve problems after one group of parent’s child hits another in the mouth with a stick and breaks his incisors. “God of Carnage” was an original French play written by Yasmina Reza. The work has since been translated to English and received a Tony Award for best play in 2009.
Location: Teatro Laurence Olivier located between Avenida 2 and Calle 28 next to Sala Garbo.
Time: 7:30 pm Friday, 2:30 pm Saturday and Sunday
Contact Info: To reserve tickets call 8858-1446
YOLO Fridays Luxe Lounge – The door opens to a pre-Castro era Cuban inspired outdoor terrace replete with art deco colored walls, furniture, and vintage weathered wrought iron railings. Luxe Lounge boasts a upper level V.I.P. Ultra Lounge. The upper level Ultra Lounge is flowing with beautiful drapery and tapestries that adorn the walls and floors throughout. The Ultra Lounge is fitted with ample, plush modular seating complete with private cabana booths and balcony that overlook the energizing stage and dance floor below.
While Luxe aspires to bring the big room ‘super club’ feel to Uptown Costa Rica, the nightlife impresarios behind the project known for their pursuit of creating the perfect party are not resting on the laurels of the philosophy of simply opening the doors and waiting for the masses to flock to that which is new. While Luxe’s innovative design will be a definite tour de force in and of itself; the project will offer a world class experience awash with aural and eye-candy at every turn. In addition, Luxe Lounge plans to host regular events featuring the planet’s top touring, club and festival circuit talent with Fridays dedicated to latin artists and Saturdays to US and European Talent. The calendar already includes globetrotting heavyweights (soon to be announced). The goal is to establish Luxe Lounge not only locally but regionally and nationally as a de facto must-stop over for touring international arena, club acts and DJ talents.
