The entertainment industry’s most powerful couple celebrated their 5th anniversary in Old Havana, Cuba amongst family and friends.
R&B’s power couple was mobbed by dozens of well-wishers at the renowned restaurant La Guarida on Wednesday night, and police had to step in to keep the crowds at bay. La Guarida staffers showed The Associated Press pictures of the two dining on typical Cuban creole favorites — fish, chicken, black beans and rice.
Their bodyguards’ presence outside set the gritty, bustling neighborhood of Center Havana abuzz, and a crowd gathered downstairs shouting Beyonce’s name until she went to a balcony and waved. Police arrived and made sure she was able to exit without incident.
“She was beautiful, without a drop of makeup, very natural,” waitress Silvia Fernandez said. “What happened with the people was incredible.”
On Thursday the couple toured colonial Old Havana wearing dark glasses and surrounded by bodyguards and excited fans. Beyonce posed for pictures with local schoolchildren while Jay-Z puffed on a Cuban cigar, and then they popped into another restaurant that boasts a rooftop terrace with a sweeping view of the harbor.
Now that’s how you spend an anniversary! Peep more pics below.
