CEBU CITY – This
July 2018, the 126th anniversary of the founding of the Katipunan
and Cebu Katipunan leader Leon Kilat’s 145th birthday will be
celebrated by Palm Grass, the Cebu Heritage Hotel with “BAYAN, BALAK,
ALAK”, a two-part poetry night.
On July 7, from 6PM to
9PM, the founding of the KKK by hero Andres Bonifacio will be
commemorated at the hotel’s library restaurant, Kapihan ni Lumaya.
The second part of the
event will happen on July 31, from 6PM to 9PM, 4 days after Tres de
Abril hero Leon Kilat’s birthday. It will be at Palm Grass’ roofdeck
bar Hardin Dagami.
“BAYAN, BALAK, ALAK” is
open to both seasoned and contemporary Cebuano poets to share their
Filipino or Bisaya poems about our country and society.
On these nights, beer will
be 55% off for everyone at the venue, and those who will perform
shall be given a free drink.
On the anniversary of the
founding of KKK, all dishes and drinks named after Katipuneros will
be discounted at 20% off.
Lumaya’s most affordable
combo meals, the “Kinabaratohang Kaon sa Kapihan” (KKK), offer
well-known and loved Cebuano main dishes with side dishes and iced
tea, which cost from P79.00 to P99.00 only for the whole year.
As the only heritage hotel
in Cebu, Palm Grass pays tribute to the legacy and sacrifice of
local heroes by naming floors, rooms, dishes and drinks after them.
The hotel also honors the
descendants of Cebuano Katipunero heroes with the Kaliwat Ko’g
Katipunero card (KKK) that gives special privileges and special room
accommodation rates to members.
The Katipunero descendant
must only present a valid ID or any supporting documents that
connect the bearer to a Cebuano Katipunero and shall pay an amount
of P200.00 for a lifetime membership.
Palm Grass aims to engage
all Cebuanos, especially the youth, to learn and explore about
Cebu’s colorful and valiant heritage.
