New Addition At a Late Night Favorite
Esperanto, one of Spa City’s most popular jaunts for late night eats is welcoming a new addition: a mural by local cartoonist, Dana Owens. In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the eatery wanted to introduce a new piece of artwork into the space. They have been posting live updates of its progress on their Facebook page.
“We just love being a part of this community, seeing smiling faces for lunch, dinner or a 3:00 am snack. It’s the magic of Caroline Street. Dana, being a local artist, creating a mural on our walls just makes sense. It fits right in with what’s going on here,” Will Pouch, the owner of Esperanto, told CBS 6. Dana Owens also told CBS 6, “I am very happy to have original art in Esperanto. It’s been a staple on Caroline Street and in Saratoga nightlife for over 20 years and I am honored to be a part of their anniversary.
