Fundraiser for Banderas Bay Women's Shelter

Come dressed in your best traditional Mexican garb and join our third annual Season Close Mexican Fiesta while helping us raise funds for the Banderas Bay Women’s Shelter (Compassion for the Family).

The first floor of the shelter will be completed this summer and your generous support will help them get to that exciting milestone.

On Wednesday, June 13, from 7:00 to 11:00 pm, friends of the family will enjoy a complimentary signature Hot Chile Love Margarita to get the party started.

We'll also have live music, piñatas, a tequila bar, a 50/50 cash raffle, singing, dancing and other surprises as we say "mil gracias" to Vallarta and Banderas Bay!

In the NWJ! tradition, the person dressed in the "best" Mexican attire (as chosen by the family) will also enjoy a special No Way José! prize.

Remember last year's winner? Don't hold back! Come enjoy our Tequila Bar that starts at 8:00 pm for only 250 Pesos per person. Our full bar and menu will also be available with all of your NWJ! favorites with a portion of all food and drink that evening going back to the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter to help them "Raise da Roof!"

You will also have the chance to purchase bricks at 100 pesos per brick. For each brick purchased, you will receive a raffle ticket for some amazing prizes.

Guests can also purchase a tile with their name or personal message. Tiles will be available in 2 sizes; a 4x4 tile for the shelter's "Welcome Wall"  for 1,200 Pesos/$100 USD/Canadian or a 8x12 floor tile for 2,500 Pesos/$200 USD/Canadian.  

Tu Casa en Vallarta will also be saying "hasta la vista," until October 15. But come by and see us Thursday or Friday, June 14 & 15, and everyone enjoys 50% off of food and drink... help us clean our fridge!

Don’t forget to stay tuned and follow us on our summer vacation adventures. We may be in your city soon. So watch for that "NWJ! Hot Chile Love Margarita Happy Hour Invitation," possibly coming to a place near you wherever you may be this summer!

No Way José! is on the south side of downtown at 5 de Febrero 260, just over the Vallarta street bridge on your left heading south from the Malecón. Open Monday – Sunday, 4:00 to 11:30 pm. Seating is limited so make your reservations today by calling 223-2853, or email Julie Guerrero, or online at
