Rezoning of Calle Larga?

I've heard rumors that the city is planning to rezone Calle Larga, that businesses (i.e. restaurants and bars) will have to move. I have no idea of the validity of this statement but it did come from a business owner currently on Calle larga. It may only be for restaurants and bars. Has anyone else heard this? I understand that it sound ridiculous. But I also know it has happened to parts of the city before,

Female boxer, dog found

This female boxer is about 3-years old and weights under 40 lbs. She was found on 12 de Octubre. Apparently she was chained up, as there are abrasions on her neck. But she is a very loving, gentle creature, well behaved and the sweetest thing ever. When I take her for walks she stays right by my side and won’t cross the street unless I say so. She needs love. She will be your best friend. I bathed her and took her to the vet. She is now on powdered nutrition, vitamin supplements, anti-biotics and has been de-wormed. No fleas. Will give to someone who is loving and will see that she has a good home. She understands English and loves to sit on the sofa with you, so I am surmising she probably belonged to Gringos at one time. Unfortunately she cannot be in a home with cats. Photos.

Roller blades

These old legs can´t skate like they used to, therefore it’s with a great deal of sadness I have to part with my trusty pair of roller blades. I used to get 100 km to a gallon of milk and the wind would blow through what was left of my curly locks, but alas those days are past.

My magical blades are in need of a new home. Photos.

Capulis Band at Wunderbar on September 18, 9 PM

The Capulis are playing at the Wunderbar at 9 PM this Thursday, September 18. Here is a review from Mark Tanney on this wonderful group: Went to see The Capulís last night at L'Aperitivo. To be honest, they blew me away. The group is not easy to define so I will borrow the description from GringoPost: "They are an exciting group with Daniela Altieri as the lead singer. It is a cutting edge musical fusion with Latin music, electronics and vocal experimentation. The rhythms will get your body going." That description seems close enough, if you have to pick one. But on another level they are so original it's really hard to describe them. And this originality is not a "show." It comes from the heart. Daniela in particular is a special artist who brings it all and shares it all. I found it remarkable. Don't let this talk of "originality" scare you off. The music is varied, accessible, and fun. The band is tight. The Wunderbar is on the Escalinata (stairs going down to the river near Calle Larga and Hermano Miguel). No cover charge.
