VIC: The Ball – Hemingway in Havana
Date: August 26 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm
“If the trade winds were good, Hemingway might make his way to Havana Harbor … But on other days, he would take the ornate caged elevator down from Room 511 to the lobby and make his way out to the sun-speckled street. It was just a 10-minute stroll through Old Havana from Hotel Ambos Mundos to El Floridita, Hemingway’s favorite bar.”
