Coyo Taco Bar with Speakeasy Coming to Giralda
The popular Coyo Taco restaurant and bar is coming to Giralda Plaza, the eighth location for this growing chain of fast casual eateries. From 11am to 2am, the new venue serves fresh tacos, chips and guacamole, a variety of bowls, and features a trompo rotisserie. The speakeasy, accessed via a secreted entranceway, will feature a collection of Tequila and mezcal spirits. Coyo Taco is scheduled to open at 126 Giralda in August. http://coyo-taco.com/

Ortanique Celebrates 20 Years on the Mile
When the Miracle Theatre, a 1948-vintage Wometco movie house, was brought back to life, the city searched for a signature restaurant to occupy the space adjacent to the entrance. They discovered restauranteur Delius Shirley and noted chef Cindy Hutson, embracing their tropical Caribbean Island inspired theme — “Cuisine of the Sun.” The rest is history. Ortanique continues to thrive two decades later with a completely unique and original menu, a vibrant style and warm, inviting atmosphere that accents the Great Gables lifestyle. http://ortaniquerestaurants.com/

Sunday Brunch at La Dorada
Celebrating 24 years on Giralda, La Dorada Spanish Mediterranean Cuisine Restaurant and Bar presents a delightful Sunday Brunch menu for $25 from 11am to 2pm, featuring two first course and one second course, with bottomless Mimosa, Bellini and Bloody Mary cocktails for $15. La Dorada Spanish Mediterranean Cuisine is located at 177 Giralda Avenue. Call 305-446-2002. https://ladoradarestaurant.com/

Skeleton Crew at GableStage
Skeleton Crew tackles the corrosion of the American Dream — and the economic, racial, and social tensions of a city, a workforce, and a nation. Set in a small factory in Detroit, the play articulates the workers struggle to survive. Their banter and confrontations are a powerful currency, posing urgent questions and revealing startling truths. GableStage is located at the Biltmore Hotel, 1200 Anastasia Ave. Call 305-445-1119. http://www.gablestage.org

Actors’ Playhouse presents Murder for Two
Everyone is a suspect in Murder for Two, a hilarious musical murder mystery with a twist: one actor investigates the crime, the other plays all of the suspects and they both play the piano! A zany blend of classic musical comedy and madcap mystery, this 90-minute whodunit is a highly theatrical duet loaded with killer laughs. The play continues at the Miracle Theatre through August 11. The Miracle Theatre is located at 280 Miracle Mile. Call 305-444-9293. http://www.actorsplayhouse.org

Tropical Audubon Society Volunteering
Volunteers are the figurative Wind beneath the Tropical Audubon Society’s Wings. This crucial Conservation Mission takes flight daily with the help of volunteers whose talents, interests and skills expand their reach and impact. Whether planting native flora or removing invasive plants at the Steinberg Nature Center grounds, guiding bird walks or tours of the historic Doc Thomas House, assisting at events, or supporting education, communications and conservation efforts, volunteering your time and expertise will literally enhance quality of life for all South Floridians and for the animals with whom we share our region. The group meets at the historic Doc Thomas House at 5530 Sunset Drive. Call 305-666-2842. http://tropicalaudubon.org/

Great Gables Events – weekend of July 12

Greetings,

We’re coming up on the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969. This was seminal event in our country’s — and the world’s — peaceful historic achievements. This herculean effort has affected our lives in a myriad of profound ways. As we look back on this milestone moment, let’s consider the types of challenges we can surmount when we prioritize our focus toward a noble goal.

We hope you’ll find the following list of Great Gables Events informative, entertaining and enlightening. Take a few minutes to look through the calendar listings to find some truly delightful and worthwhile events.
