Members of the SACI sponsored local restaurant

By Herman Santa

Members of the Spanish American Club, Inc. (SACI) and their families dined at the El Floridita Cuban Cuisine Friday, January 21, 2011, one of the most talked-about Cuban restaurants in Port St. Lucie.  After the dinner the members celebrated Xiomara Guanill’s birthday.  The food was fantastic and El Floridita owners, Antonio Julian and Mary Cuba offered the members and their guests a special for $10.95 with dessert.  Antonio and Mary gave the directors of the club a gift certificate to be used as a door prize at our monthly events.

A great time was had by all, and SACI members now know for sure that El Floridita is one of the best Cuban restaurants on the Treasure Coast.  Thanks Julian and Mary for the certificate and to all who attended, specially the board of directors.
