Today is Habana Outpost's Opening Day and Earth Day Expo!

Some highlights from this afternoon's schedule:

"Created by artist and restaurateur Sean Meenan, Café Habana and the Habana Outpost eateries were built on the principles of great food, great fun, and social responsibility. Our mission is to show respect for the community, the environment, and the arts in a setting that is always fun and accessible. With forward-thinking design and business practices we have created a space where neighbors can gather around a great meal, learn, and create."
