Escape to paradise and let your imagination take over. Let the music and the sounds of the tropics take you away on a dreamy night to the islands as you walk the beaches of the Shaw Centre in your best vacation attire for the night. Sway to the music, sing along to catchy island tunes, lay back on a beach chair and sip on your Tropicolada while catching up with all your Ottawa friends.
