La Junta

La Junta, a restaurant/bar and performance space in the middle of Calle Loíza, was destroyed by Hurricane María.

Owned by master plenero Tito Matos and journalist Mariana Reyes, La Junta was at the center of the Calle Loíza, and Barrio Machuchal, communities' efforts towards socially-responsible development, and community building. 

La Junta needs help to re-open. Without our help we will lose a much needed performance space for independent artists, live plena, bomba, and rumba; its employees will find themselves without a job; plus the community will lose a truly open and welcoming community space. 

Tito and Mariana have given lots of fun times, support, and love to many. Let's help them in a time of need. Let's make this happen.
