Quinta Mazatlan Coffee House

Book on down to Quinta Mazatlan on Thursday, May 25th for an evening of history, culture, and fun! We will be recreating the vibe of the historic 1960s Quinta Mazatlan Coffee House! McAllen natives Lisa Adams and Erren Seale will be on hand to recite their spectacular poetry and talk about the history of the coffee house during the 1960s. Members of the audience will be invited to share personal stories or annotates about the Matthews and/or Shultz families. Delicious treats from Sweet Temptations Restaurant and smooth coffee will be served as we enjoy a "groovy" time together reminiscing about memories made and good times had at Quinta Mazatlan.
