Fidel Castro Retirement Party

Would you like to celebrate at a Fidel Castro Retirement Party? If so, you will soon have that opportunity at a local restaurant.

Chez Henri, which I have previously reviewed, will be starting a Six Week Latin Dinner Series on April 20 with a Gala Retirement Party for Fidel Castro. The Latin Dinner Series will run from April 20 to May 31, showcasing the lesser-known cuisines of South and Central America with three-course, $39 prix fixe menus.

Chef-owner Paul O’Connell will offer unique meals based on authentic recipes from Cuba, Venezuela and Ecuador. Each country will be featured for a full two weeks before the menu sails on to the next. Chez Henri’s regular ala carte menu of French-Latin food will also be available.

The Fidel Castro Retirement Party will be held Sunday, April 20, starting at 7:00 PM. Cost for this one-night-only event is just $39 per person. In addition to photographs of Cuba and other colorful décor, the restaurant will come alive with Latin music by local singer-guitarist Jean-Carlo. The festivities will be fueled by potent Cuban cocktails, and a tres leche cake with a retirement message for Fidel will be served at meal’s end.

The highlight of this evening of food, drink, music and fun will be a Cuba Trivia Contest, starting at 9:00 PM, which all diners can enter.

Questions might include:
· What song was The Buena Vista Social Club’s first big hit ?
· In what Cuban city was TV’s Ricky Ricardo born ?
· Which U.S. ship was blown up in Havana harbor ?

Reservations for the Fidel Castro Retirement Party on April 20 are being accepted for parties of all sizes.
