>>> AND WE'RE BACK NOW WITH A MIAMI TRADITION -- [ SPEAKING IN NON-ENGLISH ] -- A TRADITION FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS. AND THE NEW GENERATION OF LATINA LEADERSHIP AT THE TOP. ♪ >> WHEN SOMEONE SHOWS UP AT CLUB TIPICO DOMINICAN, THEY WILL HAVE GOOD AUTHENTIC FOOD, AWESOME MUSIC AND THE AMBIENCE WITH THEIR FAMILY. IT IS MIAMI'S OLDEST DOMINICAN RESTAURANT AND NIGHTCLUB. MY DAD STARTED THE RESTAURANT IN '85. MY DAD WAS BORN AND RAISED IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. HE CAME HERE TO THE U.S., MIAMI. HE NOTICED THAT MIAMI DID NOT HAVE A PLACE WHERE HE CAN SOCIALIZE WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS FROM HIS COUNTRY. SO HE STARTED THE BUSINESS AS REALLY A SOCIAL CLUB. >> I DECIDED TO GO DAY BY DAY, COME HERE AFTER WORK AND DO LITTLE THINGS, RENOVATE THIS PLACE. AND WE'RE HERE SO I'M SO PROUD. >> WHEN I WAS YOUNG, WE WOULD COME HERE OFTEN JUST TO SEE THE VIBRANCE AND THE CULTURE AND THE PEOPLE BEING A PART OF WHAT HE ESTABLISHED WAS ALWAYS A WOW FOR ME. SO I WANTED TO BE A PART OF THT. ♪ >> WE ARE TRULY, TRULY AUTHENTIC TO OUR BRAND, TO THE DOMINICAN CULTURE. WE HAVE SEEN GENERATION AFTER GENERATION COME HERE AND ENJOY AND DINE WITH US. WE TRY TO BE ALL IN ONE, MEANING A BUSINESS, BUT ALSO A PLACE WHERE THE COMMUNITY CAN COME AND SEEK OUR HELP IF THEY NEED IT. >> PROUD. VERY PROUD. PROUD OF MYSELF. PROUD FOR THE PEOPLE THAT SUPPORTED ME. AND PROUD FOR MY DAUGHTER, WHO IS STILL RUNNING THIS PLACE. >> IT MAKES ME PROUD OF MY FATHER. COMING HERE, WORKING HARD, TEACHING HIMSELF HOW TO READ AND WRITE IN ENGLISH AND BUILDING SOMETHING WE CAN ENJOY
