  1. This is a completely new operation and not the same folks that occupied that space after Just Chillin'.
  2. Lots of good choices here. We use Miguel Ramirez - 331-068-3827 - he is a general contractor. He has done a lot of work for us and we are about to get started on some new projects with him. Very reliable and capable.
  3. I agree with Tomas. I've never had a problem bringing in prescription medications returning from the U.S. Probably wouldn't hurt to have a copy of the prescription but I have never been asked for one. Also I've never heard of anyone needing a letter from your doctor. I've brought in a couple of months worth of medications with absolutely no problems.
  4. I posted this on behalf of our friend who just opened this place. For the open house he will have "snacks" but not sure exactly what will be included. During his regular schedule he has a few things available to eat and plans to add others little by little. It is definitely more of a cocktail bar than a restaurant - at least for now. Stop by on Friday and check it out.
  5. I had cataract surgery with Dr. Rigoberto Rios who has been discussed in a very negative way on this board and others. I'm not in anyway saying that those events didn't happen. I read all those comments and took them into consideration in my choice of doctors for my procedure. I am personally completely happy with the results. I didn't find him at all arrogant. I am eventually going to have the other eye done and will go back to him when the time comes. Consultation and follow up in Riberas - surgery in Guadalajara. Again this is just my personal experience and I am not at all trying to negate other's experiences. Choice of doctors in any area of specialization is an extremely personal decision. Lots of great choices available.
  6. CFE Online Access Problem

    I was able to access my current CFE bill online and download the PDF version in the last few minutes (using Chrome). In the past there have been a few times when I have been going out of town and knew that my CFE bill would be due while I was gone. I took an old bill to the CFE kiosks at their building in Chapala, scanned the code at the bottom of that bill so it located my account, and made a deposit a little over my highest bill from the previous year. That way I didn't run the risk of having the electricity turned off while I was gone. The balance over what was actually due was applied to the next bill automatically without me having to do anything. Just an option to consider and for me that was much better than the risk of having to deal with getting the service reinstated when I got back.
  7. I am posting this on behalf of our friend Rigo who has open a great new place in the former location of Tom's Bar and Justin Chillin'. Open House The Cocktail Bar Constitución 32 - Ajijic (The former location of Tom's Bar & Just Chillin') Friday - February 23 7:00 to 9:00 Please join us for free cocktails and snacks ============================================ Barra Libre The Cocktail Bar Constitución 32 - Ajijic (La antigua ubicación de Tom's Bar y Just Chillin ') Viernes - 23 de Febrero 19:00 a 21:00 Cócteles y botanas gratis
  8. Fiber optics

    The good news is that no one is being forced to sign up or prepay. I'm going to do so with my eyes wide open. "Early adopters" face some risk but it sure is fun when you get the new toys to play with first.
  9. Mario's in San Antonio Tlayacapan

    We were there yesterday for lunch yesterday and noticed the new hours. A sign inside said Closed Monday, Tuesday - Friday 9am-8pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am-10pm. We haven't been there for dinner yet but look forward to trying it out. One of our favorite places. One of the specials yesterday was birria de res. Delicious!
  10. Hilarious. Pretty much tells us what we need to know. Thanks.
  11. Severence of maid

    Getting a lawyer to do this is not at all expensive. Following the formula and getting the documentation done correctly is not only a good idea from a legal perspective it is the right thing to do. It is pretty simple. Or you can go the obnoxious route.
  12. recommended vehicle?

    We used S&S to buy a new Toyota and were completely happy with their service. Great people to deal with and to me their service was well worth whatever they were paid by the dealer. They took us into town, helped us pick out exactly what we wanted, got some things thrown in by the dealer, had it delivered to us, went over the car when we received it, got the plates for us and took it into the dealership for the first scheduled service. I definitely could have done all that myself but chose not to since S&S was available. They are definitely in business to make money - it is not their hobby. All businesses expect to make a profit - including auto dealerships. Even if I could have saved a few bucks by doing everything myself I feel I got great value by using S&S. The good news is that we all get to make these types of decisions for ourselves.
  13. Best restaurant for burgers and Mexican Food ?

    Marios in San Antonio. Good burgers and a good menu with lots of other choices. Also very good for breakfast.
  14. Medical supplies needed

    Here is a list of locations in Mexico from the Hollister/Mexico website. No idea about prices or if they can help you in English. I would be a little surprised if these supplies are cheaper in Mexico but perhaps so. Scroll down to Jalisco and you will find several places in the Guadalajara area that appear to sell Hollister products. http://www.hollister.com.mx/es-mx/wheretobuy Also looks like Amazon Mexico might have some of the supplies you are looking for. https://www.amazon.com.mx/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_7?__mk_es_MX=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ostomia&sprefix=ostomia%2Caps%2C252&crid=2EMD57DS78TNC&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aostomia
  15. I completely agree with Sonia - including the need to vomit based on some of the responses. You haven't gotten some good advice here but please speak to a lawyer to get the facts straight, the documentation in place, and the stress removed. There are several good lawyers to help you including Spencer who has been mentioned here a number of times. I haven't personally used him but I have no doubt you will be very happy with his work. Just to provide another option I have personally used Azucena Bateman - 766-1654 - 16 de Sept. #11 in Ajijic. She helped is with an issue with a gardener and we were very satisfied. It sounds like you want to understand what you are required to do so you can decide what you want to do. It also sounds like you really like her and want to do the right thing. One of these lawyers can help you understand all the details and help you implement whatever you decide. Please don't terminate her when this issue should be pretty easy to resolve. I admire you taking the time to figure this out.
