Come hang out in the laid back tropical atmosphere of the Everglades Hostel’s back yard. Event organizer and artist Kristin Jayd will be applying henna/mehndi designs. The gazebo will be set up as a hookah lounge, with carpets and cushions to recline on. A DJ will be playing laid back, ambient Mediterranean-flavored music. And Hani Khouri will reprise his role as chef, with an endless buffet of delicious goodies.

On the menu: hummus, fool muddamas (fava and garbanzo beans), lentils, okra, maybe a fish dish, tabbouleh, shish kabob, chicken rolls with sumac, falafel, and nammourah (semolina tea cake flavored with rose water), among other things.

A cover charge of $5 gets you in the door, rain or shine. Everything else is a la carte. Check out the package deal which includes all three for $35.

Seems like gourmet cheesemaker and Mediterranean chef Hani Khouri is all over the place these days. Busy man! Does he ever take a moment to just relax, chill out for a moment, stop and smell the… shisha? Sure he does!

There’s a groovy, laid-back event coming up soon at the Everglades Hostel way down in Florida City. Don’t groan, it’s worth the drive down. Where else would you get a chance to sprawl out on cushions and carpet in the hostel’s gazebo, smoke a hookah and get your hands and feet decorated with traditional henna designs?

And speaking of Hani, he’s bringing the vegetarian feast of: hommos asli (asli means authentic), baba ghanouj asli, tabbouleh asli, felafel asli, tahini sauce, traditional condiments, fresh baked pita bread and fresh goat milk ice cream in various tropical fruit flavors. If you miss buying his ice cream at the farmers market, here’s your chance to enjoy the treat in real Mediterranean style.
