  1. Past hour
  2. Happy 2019 to everyone. Bonne Annee. Since the grilling season is still in far off in the future, we decided to bring you some of these summer flavors right now in January. From January 12 and until the 27, "Oui Oui" is celebrating both Grilled & Smoked Meats & Chef Daniel is making from La Cote de Boeuf (aka Cowboy Steaks) to Texas Style Ribs. Our Grill and Smoker (both from Texas) have been up and running for a week now, the first red hot, and the second one low and slow. We also feature French Hamburgers! What's that you say, well you are going to have to come and try for & yourself. For Wine Lovers we have expanded our wine list (over 60 labels and counting) with wines from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa & Uruguay. Oui-Oui opened an indoor dining room with a wood fired Chimney for the holydays season (just in time for when the mercury drops a little at night) and we also have an outdoor gas fireplace. If meat is not your thing, Oui-Oui is also celebrating Flemmenkush week (aka Tarte Flambee), and several versions of this French Pizza are available including a “Forest” vegetarian one (Oui-Oui’s regular menus is available with Salmon, Fondue, etc ...). On the entertainment side, Black Swan with Diamonds is celebrating Sade, Bowie & Rod Stewart’s Birthdays this month, so they will perform your favorite songs from these great artists alongside their usual repertoire. Shows start after 7:30pm on Fridays & Saturdays.

    Bank for "Tourist Visa"

    That is where we got our account on tourist visa. The HSBC next door would not do it.
  4. I would try a marine canvas store. They deal with super duty zippers all the time. Growing too big for his jacket - maybe you are spoiling too much!

  9. Email. Responding to the string of emails every time, as they instruct. They finally called me this morning--twice, two different people. They said that had I not kept after them, my February deposit would never have been made. They apologized profusely for their lack of attention, they took some new information from me (unrelated to the standard form), and told me that my January deposit would be in my bank in two weeks or less, followed on the 3rd by my February deposit. I believe that my senator is directly responsible for this turn-about and I am more grateful than you can imagine. Unless something unforeseen goes wrong with the deposit, this is the end of the story. Thank god--it was a big scare.

    Southern Sisters Restaurant

    They do appear to frequently change their minds. They sure didn't have deep-fried chicken on the menu when I was there just before Xmas. That was a surprise. Guess they couldn't get it right, so better not to offer it.

    The "partners" are married. And I have been watching them haul cement bags in and out, among other things. But look how long it is taking to "remodel" Salvadore's into Spago's...

    Southern Sisters Restaurant

    Had a fairly fine breakfast over a month ago on a Sunday, and talked with the waitress who said she was one of the sisters. I asked about the fried chicken, thinking Southern pan fried, but was told it was deep fried but they had tried various ways and settled on one. Tuesday was to be fried chicken special day, so after the holidays I was anxious to go back for it. Finally went back this past Tuesday (the15th, Jan) about 6:30. Was told there was no fried chicken and there were no more "specials" days. We were the only ones inside, one person sitting at a table outside (brr), so one would think service would be fairly attentive----NOT! I feel bad about trashing the place because it is in a beautiful indoor space with a nice outdoor dining area. But the food we did get was not good, and neither was the service. She had a "large" salad---had hardly any lettuce or greens, I had the ribeye med rare---grey, chewy, not juicy, with over-steamed broccoli (one side) and "mixed" vegetables, which turned out to be sliced carrots (second side). I do hope things turn around for them, but I won't be back until I hear a few good reviews.

    The line goes down one street to the lake, turns right for another block or two to the west and then turns right to go north about four or five blocks to Pemex.

    Gas in riberas today

    We drove to Riberas Pemex around 3.30 PM and police and Pemex staff are not allowing lineups on the side of the Carrettera. They directed us to park on the side street towards the lake. The lineup on that street was 4 - 5 blocks long.
  18. We brought a leather motorcycle jacket to him for repair but he had to source the heavy duty zipper from gdl and it took a while
  19. A zipper is a zipper but when I read riding jacket I was thinking horse. Doh.
  20. I need to pick up a load of floor tiles in GDL, anyone know of a cargo trailer for rent ( 5x8 size approx ) ? There was a trailer parked on the carretera in ajijic for a while but I haven't seen it lately.
  21. Just in case anyone is still looking, the Pemex in Riberas has gas and almost no lines
