Palapa Joe's in La Manzanilla set to host 'open mic' night Saturday

LA MANZANILLA, Jalisco, Mexico - Palapa Joe's restaurant in La Manzanilla will be having an open mic night Saturday (Dec. 4) beginning at 7:30 p.m. - mas o menos.

According to La Manzanilla's Lois Lane, this is the fifth year that the restaurant/bar will be hosting musicians, jokesters, poetry readings - and just about anything else for anyone willing to stand up and perform.

The Saturday event will be taking place in the remodeled restaurant, which added outside seating - and lots of seating at the new bar.

Here is a link to a blog about one of the open mic nights last year: Captain's Blog - Grab your ukuleles

The series has been growing in popularity year to year, with Palapa Joe's owner, Willie Mason, frequently contributing his music along with the group, the La Manzanilla Lounge Lizards.

Below are some additional photos from last year's open mic night in January.
