In the Hawaiian language, pūpū denotes a relish, appetizer, canapé, or hors d'oeuvre. Pulutan is a Filipino term for finger foods or appetizers eaten while drinking liquor or beer. This dinner will consist of some of my favorite Filipino and Hawaiian-inspired bites. This event will be held at wine bar and beverages will be available for purchase. Anthony Francisco will be performing Island Reggae covers. Anthony plays solo acoustic as well as full band gigs all over Southern and Northern California. He made a name for himself in the SoCal Reggae scene playing with many different reggae acts throughout the area. His project as a solo artist pulls from influences such as Allen Stone, Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Justin Nozuka and Bruno Mars. Mixing an array of different genres, Anthony's original music combines Rock and R&B with a pop-reggae element.
