A new branch opens
Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. and Liddy Gamboa Montelibano, cut the ribbon, and Fr. Emilio Henares blessed the establishment while good luck coins were thrown by Rica Lacson.
This was at the opening of the second branch of 21 Cafe at Go Hotel, Robinsons Place in Bacolod City recently.
The first café was established by the family matriarch, the late Lydia de la Rama Gamboa, at the corner of her home at 21st Lacson Street in 1984, that later became the Bar 21 Restaurant.
The resto is now managed by the third generation of Gamboas, Rica Lacson, Paulo Araneta, Antoni Espinos and Richie Gamboa. The opening coincided with the birthday of their Lola Lydia.
Remember: When God closes a door, He opens a window, but at times He shut both. Worry not for He would tear down the roof so His blessings will overflow.*
