  1. A couple of years ago we wanted to have a couple of Ethan Allen chairs that we brought with us recovered. We looked through all of Albertos books but couldn't find what we really liked. On a trip to Phoenix went to a fabric warehouse and found something suitable and brought back enough for the chairs. They turned out great - on time - on budget. I've been to the new place and they have lots more room and better light.
  2. Is there still a group working on graffiti? I have paint I'd like to donate - don't know where or who to contact.

    Cafe Montana

    If you look closely at the sign for the new place just west of the Modelorama you'll see a tilda (ñ) over the second 'n' and an accent (é) over the e in cafe - so Café Montaña.
  4. The Have Hammers School is closed for the holidays through January 7th reopening on Monday January 8th. Lalo usually opens around 9am.
  5. We did our renewals last month. I headed to Banamex on Day of the Dead which is a holiday, reminded a friend. So I went the next day about 9:30 and there were at least 100 people waiting. Not knowing what to do I found a bank person and asked about the check for passports. He asked if I had the form. Form? So he gave me 2 forms and asked if I had my passport which I didn't - I was just coming to get a check. I'd have to come back. This was Friday and my wife was going to have to be there anyway. Monday morning after figuring out a couple of lines on the form we arrived at 9am and there were only a dozen people waiting. I found the same bank guy who showed us what we were missing on the form and he put us in line since the number machine didn't seem to be working. Less than half an hour and we were done. We did our processing at the Legion which was super easy since they are very organized.
  6. I've purchased replacement screen material from Vi Lu Ma, the glass shop just west of Colon on the mountain side of the carratera. They should be able to handle the whole job.
  7. For whatever reason you 'can't receive messages'. I told Ricardo your name and that you'd be calling him. I'm Brad.
  8. I just talked to our gardener and he said he would be happy to come see what you need. His name is Ricardo, speaks perfect English and is a real gardener. Very reliable, consistent and a very nice guy. We've been using him since May. His number is 331-738-1815.
  9. There are a few LTH stores around and they take exchanges so you get rid of your battery and they give a guarantee. There is one in Riberas across from the 7-11.
  10. I'm happy to give another recommendation for Luzma. She is charming and fun to be with.
  11. Try Puritan Poultry next to S&S Auto. Always helpful, always great quality.
  12. You'll have to buy a Prime membership on the MX site. It's still half price.
  13. The Telcel Max Sin Limite 1000 also includes free calls to the US and Canada and you can pay ahead so you don't have to remember to go back to pay. I paid 6 months when I started.
  14. I used America Ship a couple of times, a little complicated at first but figureable outable. The last things I ordered came in 2 boxes. Only one box arrived and when I asked when the other box would arrive I was told it couldn't be found and since nothing is insured it was my loss. Too bad. Never again.
  15. Have Hammers Carpentry School has left over lumber end cuts that would work very well as kindling and some larger pieces that would work in a chiminea. Bring your own bag and a 50peso donation.
  16. Just below their Penguin above has the phone as 376 108 1738 however their Face Book page shows 376 108 1686
  17. We met friends there in August, our first time. The view is spectacular. Food, serving size and service were ok to good. Out friends ordered beer and were happy. We had a Margarita that was good and then wanted wine with our dinners. We were told they didn't have any. This was a Saturday evening and they had entertainment that was way to loud for conversation. Fortunately they quit about an hour before we left.
  18. Superlake has a whole shelf of coconut oil in several sizes and price range. We like Hain organic in a 1.5 liter tub.
