The hopes and dreams of millions of Cubans were dashed when Raul Castro was named as Fidel’s successor. But that doesn’t mean Cuban restaurants should avoid publicity stunts. Hell, if they didn’t… it’d be downright unamerican.
Until Thursday, February 28, eaters at Cuba Libre (in both its Philly & Atlantic City incarnations) get a complimentary Cuba Libre cocktail with each meal. Also:
Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar is also inviting guests to sign Cuba Libre’s “Freedom Book” to express their own hope for democracy. Cuba Libre’s “Freedom Book” is a living document that has been circulating since early 2007. The book is available for viewing and signing from February 24-28 at the restaurant’s Philadelphia location and can be signed online at http://cubalibrerestaurant.com/freecuba/. Cuba Libre hopes to one day send this list of thousands of names to a free Cuban government. Also available for viewing at the restaurant is a copy of Fidel Castro’s high school yearbook, which features his class photo.
