Micha's Fine Mexican Foods

A fire at Micha’s Mexican Restaurant on April 13 was concentrated in the kitchen. Part of the roof collapsed.

It's been three weeks since a fire that started in the kitchen and spread throughout the building pretty nearly destroyed Micha's Restaurant at 2908 S. Fourth Ave.

The owners have said they will rebuild, but they are still in the process of sorting out insurance claims and other fire-related matters.

So the owners are hosting a benefit dance on Friday, May 4, to help out displaced Micha's employees.

Barrio Band, Relente 520, Poor Boys, Suerte Musical and DJ Cota Productions will perform from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. at El Casino Ballroom, 437 E. 26th St. Admission is a $10 donation, which includes dinner, and a silent auction and raffles will be held. Festival Band is providing the sound equipment.
