Orlando, FL (FNN News) – David and Joshua Wallack’s Mango’s Tropical Cafe Orlando, located at International Drive and Sand Lake Road, hosted its VIP Grand Opening celebration at 6:30 p.m. Thursday with an overflowing crowd of new customers, well-wishers, elected officials, and diplomats from all over Florida–some even followed the Wallacks from Miami in support of the grand opening of this second location. In addition to celebrating the restaurant/nightclub’s grand opening, special music guest Papayo, Pitbull’s bandmate and renowned percussionist, was on hand to celebrate his upcoming album, which releases next week. Other special guests included Haiti Ambassador-at-Large Dr. Rudolph Moise, a personal friend of the Wallacks who came up from Miami to support them; Orange County Commissioner Ted Edwards, Orange County Commissioner Victoria Siplin and Attorney Gary Siplin, Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh, and Orlando Commissioner Samuel Ings.
