Wild Wild West Carnival at Parada Tipica El Choco was a success
From February 27 to March 4, it was Carnival time at restaurant Parada Típica El Choco in Sosúa. The theme of this year’s Carnival was ‘Wild Wild West’. The restaurant was completely decorated as a Wild West saloon and fort, even the menu had been changed to Western style. There was a fort El Choco, a Saloon and a Sheriff’s Office. Every hour there was a Can Can show of the waitresses and the cook and they did that every evening during Carnival. And you could also enjoy the beautiful voice of singer Monalissa every night.
On 27 February the carnival started off with the traditional ‘Schmotzigen Donnerstag’ and the guests were expected to wear a tie. If the guest allowed that his tie was cut off, a free drink awaited him or her. Marco and Jacqueline had some ties in stock so whatever happened, there were ties to cut. Friday February 28, there was a performance of the Rock, Pop and Blues band 4M @ music consisting of Monalissa, Matthew, Mark and Mimo. Marco, the owner of the restaurant himself, sat behind the drums and he turned out to be a very meritorious and enthusiastic drummer! Of course, every hour interrupted by a Can Can show. T-bone Steak
Saturday, March 1 was the masquerade ball. For the most original Wild West Costume there was a prize of 5000 peso available! More than in previous years, the guests showed up in a Carnival costume. It was not easy for the jury to pick up a winner. It is worth mentioning that the Davidoff cigar manufacturer was present with several beautifully ladies that evening. Furthermore, there was a performance by Peter Novelli and his Band. They played country, blues and pop.
Sunday and Monday, March 2 and 3 it was Western T-bone Steak time. A delicious steak cooked on a charcoal fire was offered. Tuesday, March 4th was the closing evening and the whiskey was served for 10 pesos per glass! At the last moment Marco and Jacqueline had contracted troubadour Pain’e for this evening. Furthermore, the guests could (especially the children) enjoy every day Wild West games like horseshoe throwing and archery.
It’s obvious that also in Sosúa they know how to celebrate carnival.
