Alright, that was from October of 2012; but I just found it, now.

NOTICE: on the lower right, it was sponsored by the Minstry of Foreign Affairs (Ministerio de Relaciónes Exteriores)

Night of Arab Dance in Baladna Restaurant

It was posted in Aug 2010; but I thought it was a worth a look.

Would make the food tastier, but it would be hard to hold a conversation under that loud music.
