  1. Does anyone know what Tabarka's hours are? I have been calling all afternoon and do not get an answer. TIA
  2. I have to wonder about the waiter that served the ice cold plate of nachos. Nice or not, he doesn't sound like he was familiar with the food on the menu.
  3. My husband had ear molds made by Dr Carlos Flores at Chapala Med this week. He said they would probably be ready in a week or so. He didn't know the cost as these were a different style than he usually made.
  4. The audiologist at Quality Care only comes in once every 3 weeks. For someone needing to forfeit their h.a. for repair, that is a long time for turn around.
  5. Or you could make your own. Pick up an assortment of 4 inch talavera tile and put felt feet on the bottom.
  6. Has anything been done to resolve the dish local networks for Cincinnati? We have been using iptv and streaming but I like our options on dish better - when they worked.
  7. Did Dish ever fix the problem with the local channels being off air for the Cincinnati area?
  8. Does anyone have any new information on this problem? We are supposed to get our networks from Indiana but are having the same problem as the Cincinnati people are. It looks like satellite 77 has been taken off line. It's been more than a week for us.
  9. Yes, they take orders in English.
  10. It is our go to place to pick up pizza. Our favorite is their combo. Good ratio of toppings and cheese. Nice crust, not thick. We haven't tried delivery.
  11. I am looking for someone to install a steel and polycarbonate pergola. I understand many of the iron shops can do the frame but I looking for someone to do the entire project. Thanks
  12. We used Curative in Laredo to get our 2 Moderna shots. Drove both times. MexLuis, I sent you a pm
  13. We have bought our own oil and filter and taken everything to the Michelin garage on the libiermiento. I think their charge was about 100 peso.
  14. Renewed today and had no problem with any of our documents. They accepted the most recent CFE (February) for my husband and a copy of it for myself. Only problem was I had to wait for them to reprint the license because the first one said Pase instead of Paseo. We passed the wait time watching the guy flunk everyone that was trying to take the driving test and parallel park.
  15. Amlo has said recently that the vaccines will not be available to state or private entities until all of the federal contract obligations have been met, sometime after the end of October. He also said most of the over 60 will have their first dose by the end of April. So take it with a grain of salt.
  16. Has anyone driven to Guadalajara recently? I would like to know if the backup described is still happening. I have a dr appt I must go to next week. It's not for shopping.

    We like Pizza 2 Go Go upstairs from El Torito. We haven't tried delivery but call ahead for pick up. Open Tue - Sat 2 - 9 pm. 33 1438 4969
  18. I find the new warnings are comical. When the cream cheese package started showing the label of excess sodium, I checked out the portion size. It was based on consuming half a package as a single serving. The same thing with a package of saltines. I do use it to compare across brand lines but still check to make sure they are talking about the same serving size.
  19. Just an update on the testing at the Hospital San Antonio - their 24 -48 hours really meant by 9 pm after the 48 hr window. It would have been a lot less stressful to know that up front.
  20. No, they didn't quote a price. The GDL Reporter listed it at 4500 in July.
  21. Hospital San Antonio does Covid 19 PCR Tests. I went there for one today. I'm not sick, but I need the test to be admitted to a Guad hospital for minor surgery. The cost is high, $6500 Pesos. It took about an hour for them to get someone suited up in PPE, complete a two page questionaire and shove the swabs up my nose and throat. They were certain that they would have results by email in between 24 and 48 hours. I checked Chopo today, they are still referring customers to a Guad facility. I also went to and talked with the Laboratorio Clinico El Lago facility located behind the bus station in Chapala. They handle testing in a come one come all format at 7:00 in the morning. That appeared to me to open up the possibility of actually exposing myself to someone who is infected. Not interested.
  22. We sent our TX ballot by FedEx on Tuesday, it was received by Webb County on Wednesday. The cost was 757 pesos at the FedEx office across from Bugambilias Plaza. It included our MX address as the sending address as required.
  23. We just received our email ballots for Webb County, TX. Please read your email carefully and be sure to include your signature sheet with your Texas ballot. We had to click on their link for the sheet, it was not included in the attachments. Webb County does not allow email or fax return of the ballot.
  24. There are 2 different markets that are referred to as the Monday market. In Chapala there is the tienguis which is like the one in Ajijic on Wednesday but bigger. It is near Sorianna. There is also a market of mostly prepared food that is at Sunrise Restaurant. Someone who has been there recently might be able to better describe the products.
