Comedy For A Cause-Press Release

“We have solid training to transition us into the military but no strategy to transition back to civilian life, and to say that it is tough would be an understatement.  I knew that I had to get involved and help in any way that I could. As a comedian, I’ve seen the positive impact that laughter can have.  My hope is that it will have a healing effect for those who attend this show..."

Comedia Cantina

On February 19th, we kick off hosting weekly entertainment at our uptown location. Every day will have a different theme so make sure to check out our events calendar, to see what is coming down the pipe. Mondays are our comedy night. We will have local talent coming to the Cantina 1511 stage.

Great thing about Mondays is that we also offer $6.50 signature cocktails all day.

Everyone knows that finding a place to park uptown can sometimes be a chore. We've got you covered. We'll validate your parking in the Hearst Tower garage.

See our incredible lineup for our first Comedia Cantina below.
