Banana Cantina restaurant (along with Choco Banana downstairs) has always been a major part of the community life on Amapas and Pulipito with their now famous Wednesday Charity Nights that help causes and individuals all around the Puerto Vallarta area. This holiday season is no exception. The photo above shows a small tree on the counter at Choco Banana. The cards on the tree list a different child’s clothing item or toy. If you’d like to provide a gift for a local child, just stop in to Choco Banana and select your card. The staff will take care of the rest.

And a special bit of news from Banana Cantina….word is that local musicians are working on a special Sunday event at the restaurant that will be a first of its kind for Vallarta. A hint: you may have been to one of these “feel good” events at Stubbs BBQ in Austin, Texas or at Hell’s Kitchen in Minneapolis. More soon on this very exciting project.
