LivenUP - Everyone Should See a Show

The Ultimate Latin Date Night


Enjoy live salsa music from LATIN HEAT while you feast on delectable Cuban food on the beautiful banks of the Guadalupe River before, then see the Broadway smash ON YOUR FEET! at the San Jose Center for Performing Arts.

About the food

The meal starts with Ensalate de Tomate (Heirloom tomato, watercress, sweet onion with cumin lemon vinaigrette), followed by Empanadas con Picadillo (beef, raisins, capers, olives and Cuban spices in a flaky pastry) and Mofongo, a chicken stew with plantains, and chicarones, ending with a desert of Tres Leches de Mango (Triple milk cake with Caribbean mango).

About the show

From their humble beginnings in Cuba, Emilio and Gloria Estefan came to America and broke through all barriers to become a crossover sensation at the very top of the pop music world. But just when they thought they had it all, they almost lost everything. ON YOUR FEET! Takes you behind the music and inside the real story of this record-making and groundbreaking couple who, in the face of adversity, found a way to end up on their feet.

About the settling

It’s easy to forget sometimes that a river runs through downtown San Jose - one that rages in the winter months and becomes a meandering creek in the summer. From the footbridge behind the CPA, look down and you can see steelhead heading upstream on occasion. Surrounded by mature trees, it is perhaps the best pre-show setting for al fresco dining in downtown San Jose.

About LivenUp

We add value to live events by creating all-inclusive ticketed show experiences, then we use proceeds to buy tickets for low-income youth in our community. We believe that everyone should see a show. Check back for future events at, and Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @LivenUpPresents.
