As our first “Taste of Nicaragua” event approaches on Saturday, November 14th, we invite you to participate in our auction today!  You can download a catalog with a complete listing of our exciting, intriguing, and unique auction items here (http://bluenetwork.org/FileSpace/Public/Documents/auctioncatalog_tasteofnicaragua_vF.pdf).  

The items are divided into three categories: 

1) Live auction lots, available at the event and open to advanced bidding if you cannot attend in person; 

2) Silent auction lots, available exclusively at the event, and 

3) Online auction lots, available to all at our eBay Giving Works website now until November 13th.

So take a look and join in the auction fun.  You may just find the perfect gift for yourself or a loved one at a great price!


Imagine a day without electricity: no lights, no refrigeration, not even a radio.  Only 25% of the population living along the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua has access to electricity.  The remaining 75% are left literally in the dark, lacking even the most basic of energy services.  The Caribbean Coast is the poorest region in Nicaragua, a country that is itself the second poorest in the Western Hemisphere. 


Since 2003, blueEnergy has been working to bring sustainable energy to communities in this region through the construction and installation of hybrid wind/solar energy systems.  In the past five years, blueEnergy (a San Francisco based NGO) has electrified six communities with this wind/solar hybrid system.

First to Review. Very, very small place for good Nicaraguan food. I give them more of a 3.5 than a 4, whereas I'd give Carne Asada on West Flagler a 4.5.
