Show Your Puerto Rican Pride This Halloween with a Vejigante Costume!

It is rare to find costumes that represent the Puerto Rican culture, but I have found a Vejigante costume for both adults and kids! What is a vejigante you say? The history of the vejigante goes back to medieval Spain, when St. James defeated the Moors, and masks with horns wore worn representing the defeated infidels. Over the years, the Puerto Rican natives used the vejigantes as a symbol of patriotism and self identity, and it is now deep rooted in Puerto Rican culture, especially in places like Ponce and Loiza. A Puerto Rican even celebrating our history and culture is never complete without the vejigantes.

The costume is customizable and made to order. First you pick the colors you want for your mask. Here is an example of masks:

Then you pick your costume, you can get more elaborate ones, for an extra charge.

All costumes are custom made, orders need to be placed with sufficient time, in order to ensure completion and delivery before Halloween. Make sure you check out the other products Isla Online has to offer, straight from Puerto Rico.

My Search is Finally Over

For almost ten (10) years now, I have been searching for a book I read as a child about the Puerto Rican migration in the 1950s. At the time, I did not understand the symbolism in the story, but La Cancion Verde, The Green Song,  is a great way to teach young kids about the history of the island’s migration to the United States. I don’t remember much about the story, but I do remember how the little coqui did not lose its identity although it was living in a foreign land. The coqui, although alone and homesick still sang its song that identified who he was, hence the title of the book. I have ordered the book and am anxiously awaiting its arrival. I try to teach my girls about what it is to be Puerto Rican and everything I possibly can about our culture. Like the coqui in La Cancion Verde, although far away from our land we should never lose our identity and culture. It is up to us parents to keep the traditions and culture alive especially in a country where cultures and races tend to assimilate over years. .

  • $85 for two appetizers, four entrees, and four sangrias (up to a $180 total value)

Foursomes wash down their meals with glasses of sangria (a $10 value each).

Sazon

Genaro Morales is no stranger to New York’s restaurant scene; his first Puerto Rican restaurant, Sofrito, still draws diners to its midtown Manhattan and White Plains locations. Sazon marks Morales’s first venture into the crowded, hip market of downtown eateries, and he’s already made his mark, attracting celebrity patrons such as Adrian Grenier. The authentic Caribbean dishes, such as mofongo and ropa vieja, earned a rating of “very good to excellent” from Zagat as well as a spot on Gotham magazine’s list of must-visit Tribeca eateries.

Inside the two-story establishment, multitiered chandeliers and bright orange quilted walls bathe diners in a warm glow. The curvaceous bar wends serpent-like through one end of the space, covered in small tiles patterned to resemble snakeskin. Behind the scenes, chefs stuff plantains with beef picadillo or grill up slabs of spicy churrasco sausage to complement fruits of the sea such as calamari, shrimp, and red snapper.

$45 for a 45-Minute Swedish Massage and 15-Minute Infrared-Sauna Session at Soluna Holistic Spa ($105 Value)

While some tension is so palpable that it can be cut with a knife, no tension is strong enough to outlast a solid rendition of “Mack the Knife.” Send stress creeping back around a corner with this Groupon.

$45 for a One-Hour Massage and Sauna Package ($105 Value)

For 45 minutes, a massage therapist uses hot towels and long, gliding Swedish strokes to enhance circulation and knead tension from aching muscles. Then, patrons spend 15 minutes beneath an individual infrared-sauna, where soothing thermal energy helps detoxify the body, flush out excess water weight, and roast marshmallows hidden in pockets.

Soluna Holistic Spa

Growing up in Puerto Rico, Susu Lespier experienced the natural remedies utilized by her grandparents, whose health struggles inspired her to learn more about alternative therapies for physical wellness. She even recalled her grandmother’s nurturing influence for HBO’s video portrait series The Latino List. At Soluna Holistic Spa, Lespier has turned the wisdom of her family into an array of soothing services, using only chemical-free and certified-organic products. The welcoming staff strives to leave a small carbon footprint as they tiptoe toward guests with a cup of home-brewed tea or fruit-infused water, setting a relaxing mood with the scents of jasmine and myrrh and soft lighting. In addition to relaxing Swedish and detoxifying aromatherapy lymphatic techniques, licensed massage therapists perform a variety of signature treatments. The restorative massage specifically targets areas of pain with deep-tissue pressure, trigger-point therapy, and passive stretches, and Simply SpaAhh-Mazing sessions incorporate a 4,000-year-old method of scalp massage from India.

In keeping with the spa’s green philosophy, aestheticians revitalize skin with the fruit- and herb-filled Éminence Organic Skin Care line during facials and peels. Patrons can step out into nature on the covered deck that leads to a tranquil garden behind the spa—an ideal spot to find peace among flora or perfect bird calls among fauna.

A CALL TO ALL PEOPLE: I’m Puerto Rican and I Don’t Sell Drugs.

en : Light blue, Pro-independence Flag (1892) ...

Yesterday on WABC-TV they premiered a new sitcom: “Work It.” It’s about an unemployed guy who gets a job for a pharmaceutical company dressed as a woman. He celebrates with his friends, but can’t tell them about the specifics. One Latino friend, also unemployed, begs him to “hook him up” and says: “I’m Puerto Rican, I can sell drugs.” This is incredible, 2012 and we still have this type of stereotypical negative image being portrayed on national TV.

Boricua!

Boricuas and non-Boricuas, help send a strong message today to the Networks that this is not acceptable. Protests begin tonight at 5:30-5:45PM in front of the WABC-TV studios at 7 Lincoln Square., New York, New York. I’m Puerto Rican and I Don’t Sell Drugs. Spread the word and let’s start the New Year right by defending our community’s dignity.

Known to many as “land lobsters,” hearty steak fillets sport stylish porterhouse T-bone cuts or adorn their sirloin shapes with a crown of mushrooms. Nibbles on the main course can swipe spots with a side of traditional fried pork rinds or a sip from a soft drink or a glass of red or white house wine. Family owned for more than 30 years, Molino Rojo Restaurant has tamed hungers during the baseball season and after it, when bobsled teams race down the upper-deck aisles of Yankee Stadium.

Hey….Puerto Rico Needs Your Help

Puerto Rico El Yunque 2

Their has been a campaign going on for a while in naming the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Amongst those nominated was El Yunque National Forest.

El Yunque, as it has been commonly known for many years, is the only rain forest located in the United States. It was formally known as the Luquillo National Forest or the Caribbean National Forest, but was changed by Executive Order to El Yunque National Forest in 2007.

Map of Puerto Rico's Caribbean National Forest...

El Yunque is home to over hundreds of trees, plants and animals. It is comprised of (4) smaller forests: Tabonuco Forest, Palo Colorado Forest, Sierra Palm Forest, and Dwarf Forest. El Yunque is very important to the island inhabitants as it contains one of the largest natural collections of Taino petroglyphs.

¡Jayuya Vive, La Lucha Sigue! Jayuya Lives, the Struggle Continues

YOUTH/ALL BORICUAS RECLAIM YOUR HISTORY!

Join The ProLibertad Freedom Campaign, El Partido Nacionalista de Puerto Rico-Junta de Nueva York and Muevete Youth Conference as we celebrate the 61st anniversary of this revolutionary revolt!

On October 30th, 1950, Blanca Canales led a group of Puerto Rican Nationalists into the town of Jayuya, Puerto Rico and attacked federal installations; battled local police; and raised the flag of Puerto Rico (which was illegal to own in those days) over the town. She read a proclamation officially declaring the independence of Puerto Rico from the United States. It was a moment reminiscent of the Grito de Lares of 1868, when Puerto Ricans rose up against Spanish rule and declared independence.

It’s time we rose up in the South Bronx and brought the spirit of Jayuya back to our community!

Program:

  • Los Nacionalistas/The Nationalists (a film on the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party)
  • Camilo Matos, El Partido Nacionalista de Puerto Rico-Junta de Nueva York
  • Benjamin Ramos, ProLibertad
