Welcome to SEASON TWO of Spirit of Duluth!!

Spirit of Duluth Film & Dinner Series: A Taste of Cuba

"A Taste of Cuba" is the fourth gathering of our second season of the 'Spirit of Duluth Film & Dinner Series' at Zeitgeist. Join us on Monday, January 14th, for an evening curated by some incredible Duluthians who are Cuban and/or Cuban-American. Enjoy a delicious specially-prepared meal at 5:30 pm in our Cafe Mezzanine featuring: 1st course: Ceviche, served with avocado and cumin chips; 2nd course: Bistec de Palomilla, marinated steak served with chimichurri sauce, rice and beans and fried plantains; 3rd course: Churros.

(IMPORTANT NOTE: While we would love to be able to accommodate dietary needs or specific allergies, this meal is cooked and served as a large event, so we are unable to alter the ingredients or servings and the dinner will be served as you see it on the menu. Thank you for your understanding.)

Then, at 7:30 pm, we will show the film Una Noche (2012, directed by Lucy Mulloy, 1 hr. 30 min) in the Zeitgeist Teatro. Description: In Havana, Raul dreams of escaping to Miami. Accused of assault, he appeals to Elio to help him reach the forbidden world 90 miles across the ocean. One night, full of hope, they face the biggest challenge of their lives.

There are two ways to experience this exciting evening: (1) DINNER & FILM Enjoy a delicious, specially-prepared, gourmet Cuban dinner at 5:30 pm in our Cafe Mezzanine and then attend the film Una Noche in our Teatro at 7:30pm (IMPORTANT: If you purchase a dinner ticket, it automatically includes a ticket to the film, so please do not register for both). OR (2) FILM ONLY Watch Una Noche in our Teatro at 7:30pm. Attending the film screening is free ($5 suggested donation at the door) but seating is limited so you’ll need to reserve a free ticket below. Following the film, everyone is invited to join us in the atrium for coffee, cookies, and a post-film discussion.

PLEASE THANK OUR SPONSORS! This event is proudly sponsored by Cheryl Fosdick of C.F. Design, Minnesota Public Radio and a grant from the Laura Jane Musser Foundation.


"A Taste of Cuba" is part of Zeitgeist’s 'Spirit of Duluth Dinner & Film Series’. Back by popular demand, we will curate another six to seven events in the fall/winter of 2018/2019. We invite you to experience the culture and insights of some inspiring and truly original Duluth residents through food, film, and personal stories. Through sharing a meal, watching a film and engaging in conversation every month we’ll connect people who might not otherwise meet.

Each event is uniquely organized and hosted by Duluthians who represent the culture being highlighted and will feature a specially-crafted gourmet dinner curated by the host(s) that will allow guests to experience the taste of the cuisine as they hear the story behind it. At Zeitgeist, we know that Duluth is stronger as a creative, diverse community. We’re committed to building connections between people of different cultures and encourage you to join us for what is sure to be a fun, informative and culturally rich experience.

WINTER 2019 DATES: February 4 - Greek, March 11, and possibly April 8
