‘Night at the Museum’ benefit is top weekend expat event

The weekend is shaping up to be a wet one through Saturday, but The Women’s Club of Costa Rica plans “A Night at the Museum” Saturday as the major expat weekend event.

Unlike the movie with mystical tablets, little people and T-rexes, the women’s club is promising wine and bocas or appetizers provided by local restaurants and live music by a Colombian band that is influenced by the llanos or plains of Venezuela.

The centerpiece, of course, is a guided tour of the Museo de Arte Costarricense in Parque la Sabana from 7 to 10 p.m.

The club also promises live and silent auctions.

The event is a fund raiser for the Women’s Club’s Educational Scholarship and Reading is Fun projects. Founded in 1940, the club is one of the oldest, continuously operating service organizations in Costa Rica. Its English-speaking membership of 350 women of all ages represents 20 countries of the world.

Tickets are 20,000 colons and those interested can get more information and make purchases by calling 2239-8619 or sending an email to fundraising@wccr.org

During the daytime Saturday there is another edition of “Enamórate de tu ciudad” in the park complexes between Avenidas 3 and 5 near the tower of the Instituto Nacional de Seguros.

The Municipalidad de San José promises music, dance and theater beginning at 11 a.m..

The weather prediction for today and Saturday are for more rain with a probability of 70 percent in the city. However, Sunday is expected to be clear with no rain.

Another indoor activity could be visiting Expotur, the tourism marketplace. Vendors and tourism destinations have set up elaborate booths in the exposition center of the Hotel Ramada Plaza Herradura in San Antonio de Belén. Although the hall is closed to the public through Friday, organizers invite visitors Saturday and Sunday. There is no charge.
