March 6 Pool Party at Hotel Mercurio to Support SETAC

March 3, 2016

Hotel Mercurio is on the south side of Puerto Vallarta, just a half block up the hill from Olas Altas on Calle Francisca Rodríguez (the street perpendicular to the beach where Los Muertos Pier is located.)

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The poolside bar at Hotel Mercurio has long been a favorite hangout for locals, expat residents, and tourists. Bartender Jorge is practically an "institution" there, serving up fresh fruit margaritas and daiquiris, and entertaining the crowd with jokes and a big friendly smile.

The latest videos - or some classic oldies - are on the new giant-screen TV, and everyone's welcome to enjoy the heated pool, whether you're just popping in for a cold beer or staying at the hotel. (They even have pool towels and clothing check - no day-pass charge! Just change into your bathing suit and jump in!)

On Sundays, the party amps up a few notches with the "Beers, Boys & Burgers" Pool Party. Now in its third year, the hunky Mercurio boys grill up the tastiest hamburger sliders this side of Mexico City, and offer all the burgers you want and all the beers you can drink for only $150 pesos! Add to that some fun pool and bar games and it's a guaranteed great way to spend Sunday afternoon.

On Sunday, March 6, (that's just a couple of days away!) Hotel Mercurio will be donating 50% of the total proceeds from the Beers Boys & Burgers party to SETAC, the local community center and HIV/AIDS service nonprofit. The folks from SETAC will be on hand to talk a bit about their many programs, from HIV testing and counseling, to outreach and sexual health education, to providing baby formulas for mothers living with HIV, who cannot breast feed due to the potential for passing the virus to newborns via breast milk.

The SETAC crew will also be promoting their upcoming Duckaton 2016. The Duckaton has been an annual fundraising event for SETAC for seven years, and has consistently been a big part of the annual fundraising that keeps the organization's programs going. With the participation and support of local restaurants and businesses, literally hundreds of donated prizes are given away, and there's always great food, lots to drink (Hotel Mercurio will be donating the beer for this year's Duckaton) and amazing artwork and other valuable items at auction.

To make this Sunday's Beers, Boys & Burgers pool party a little different, we'll be spinning rock, Motown, and disco from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. The new MC, Paco, will keep the fun rolling with bar and pool games with prizes for... the most daring!

Come out to Hotel Mercurio on Sunday, March 6, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM! It will be the best party in town, and for an important cause. Just $150 pesos, all the beer and all the burgers you want. And half of the total income will be donated to SETAC.

Hotel Mercurio is located on the south side of Puerto Vallarta, just a half block up the hill from Olas Altas on Calle Francisca Rodríguez (the street perpendicular to the beach where Los Muertos Pier is located.)

The purpose of the SETAC Community Center, located at Constitucion #427 and the corner of Manuel Dieguez on the South side of Puerto Vallarta, is to provide essential services to the community, including physical and mental health treatment, referrals, and education in an atmosphere of safety, free from discrimination.
