I will be at the Bluebird Running Table at the Mercadito en Duranguito today, and I hope you will get a chance to stop by and say hi. From the Facebook post:
Hello everyone! We have organized an evening Mercadito en Barrio Duranguito for Saturday July 14th 2018. The Mercadito serves two important purposes: 1. BUILDING COMMUNITY by celebrating our first Barrio, provides a fun inexpensive/free weekend alternative, gives people a good reason to come back out to the barrio where you know the cotorreo is always good, occupying space in solidarity and resistance with residents and supporters. 2. RAISING FUNDS to maintain the Barrio beautiful with art, posters, gardens, supplies needed by residents and supporters etc. Local vendors and grassroots organizations have a free outlet (donations accepted for Paso del Sur and Barrio Duranguito) to promote/table their art, jewelry,and other products and services for their own monetary needs. Octavio Macías Meléndez got an ensemble together, they will be performing as Bach and Friends in the Barrio at Mercadito en Barrio Duranguito! Food items, beverages, paletas, books, clothing, jewelry, vinyl records, and tarot readings are some of the products and services that can be found at el Mercadito. Los esperamos en Mercadito en Duranguito! Abrazos y Besos!
I hope you can make it. It promises to be a good time for a good cause. I hope to see you there.
