    We had a great time, Fabian's music was excelent, having Azucena was a special treat! We still need to work some issues such as the schedule, lighting and announcing the event. But every one had a great time! Thank you all for coming. This is OUR party!!! Thank you Silvio for the discount at Copa, Thank you Fabian for the gift of your music and Valarin for all you do!

    The time was inconsistent with the meetup time (7:30-10:00) It was actually from 8:00 to 9:45. Also, the lights were waaaay too bright for about the first hour. Then they finally turned them down. Other than those two complaints, it was actually a good place to gol
