Old Havana Sandwich Shop in downtown Durham is known for its excellent Cuban dishes—such as a roasted pork, ham, cheese, salami, mustard, pickle tower of power.

Today, Old Havana, 310 E. Main St., will celebrate what could become a New Havana—a new era of potential goodwill, or at least something more than malicious indifference—between the U.S. and Cuba.

At 3 p.m., Old Havana, owned by Robert Matos, a Cuban native, will host a Cuba Libre toast, hoping for a free society in that country. Head down there for a snort of the rum-based drink. And get your passports ready.
