ANA’s Season Kick-off event at Casa Cupula’s Taste Restaurant and poolside, made quite a splash last Thursday, when more than 40 members and guests got together to catch up on everybody’s summer, raise a glass (or two) and sample complimentary tapas from Taste’s new chef, Juan Pablo Luna.

Everybody gathered inside for a Q&A with Board members Gene Mendoza, Don Pickens and Tom Swale, and ANA Administrator Jae Palsce, who fielded questions on Pinnacle 2, the Amapas Police Patrol, how recent changes at City Hall have affected our ability to get things done, a possibly unpermitted addition to a condo building, and improvements on neighborhood stairs and walkways that get us down the hills, into town and to the beach.

After a brief shower of humidity-decreasing rain, the well-attended party spilled out onto the pool area, where performers from Act II’s upcoming production of ‘A Chorus Line’ treated the crowd to a rousing rendition of ‘What I Did For Love’ – can’t wait for the show to open!


Next Friendraiser is Friday November 15 at Fusion Gourmet Restaurant.  Prior to the cocktail, US Consul Kelly Trainor will be on hand for a Q&A from 5-6pm.
