Gala Gig III Night of the Gypsies
It’s hard to believe but the Delray Arts Garage is still a toddler.
Despite awards, tons of press, unforgettable performances and a tad of controversy–the organization is only three years old.
Three years running and just getting warmed up!

The  Arts Garage celebrates Gala Gig III, their third anniversary in true Gypsy style this Saturday.
Come drink and dine with the lights, colors, sounds and entertainment that only gypsies can deliver.
The anniversary party takes place April 5 and will include delectable food,  vivacious entertainment and enthralling works of art.
Oh and there will be music too–the exciting sounds of Washington, D.C.-based Trio Caliente which has vocals in Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, and English set to a wide array of Latin grooves.
Trio Caliente’s sound is reminiscent of The Gypsy Kings, Buena Vista Social Club, Strunz & Farah, and Jobim— but with a flavor all their own.
“…be seduced by the blend of fiery guitar work…rumba beats, bossa nova rhythms, flamenco-tinted guitar flourishes and romantic ballads…evocative vocals…shimmering guitars…” – The Washington Post

Single ticket: $100 per person | Table for 6: $550

Real Men Bake
On Sunday, April 6 at 6 p.m. head on over to the Arts Garage for some tasty treats.

Presented by GFWC Woman’s Club of Delray Beach, Real Men Bake is an all-you-can eat feast of baked goods (sweet or savory) prepared by about 30 “bakers” — men who come from all walks of life. There may be one or two actual chefs, but most of the men are just real good cooks.
The best “bakers” will receive prizes, and the public selects the best.
While you are there, for another dollar or two, you can take a chance on a 50/50 raffle.
GFWC Woman’s Club of Delray Beach is a diverse group of women dedicated to volunteering in the greater Delray Beach community. The Club actively supports the Caring Kitchen, the Achievement Center for Children, scholarships for HS graduates, and the Veterans Administration to name but a few.
Admission is $20.
