  1. Jokes at whose expense? You'all are welcome to my ex-father-in-law as I am sure he would be the perfect scarecrow.
  2. Adding to the personal : I heard (rumor, not confirmed) that there was a break-in and just about everything was "lifted." Not sure exactly when this happened, but certainly would be a crimp in the performance. We had comida there about a month ago. Thought service was a bit rusty. Food preparation was okay though not really the kind of food we choose to eat when dining out.
  3. Somehow missed this thread til now: Laurent's (for the food) La Una (both places), for the setting Hacienda del Lago (original, for the setting)
  4. That is sad news. Owner needs to find a higher valued use for the space, or put in and advertise an elevator to accommodate the impaired among us.
  5. For lunch or dinner: 1. St. Remy du Lac; 2. Jardin de Ninete; 3. Osteria del Arte; 4. Pale; 5. Tepetate Pien Thai
  6. Our team reside in Joco and are very reliable news reporters on any untoward events in their area. They said nothing Saturday morning which makes me think whatever happened west of us may not have been "in Joco" or on the carretera. Also checked Twitter = zippo.
  7. Cannot remember when I last purchased a round trip ticket for myself or other family members because we are rarely committed to more than roughly estimated return dates. Most trips are to U.S. and back, some for Residente Permanente but also for turistas. So far, no problem with Alaska, Volaris, Interjet, or American.
  8. Hah: My favorite places from the truly "old" and some not so old days" are gone. Presently, for breakfast: Chile Verde on Colon across from the taxi parking at the Plaza; & the new Cafe Montana in SAT, north side of carretera in the residential section east of Modelo. Lunch: St. Remy in So. West Ajijic; Pale` next to Sherwin Williams paint store on the carretera; Tepatate PienThai on Hidalgo; Jardin de Ninette north lateral across from Farmacia GDL; and,, the new, very rustic but intensely flavorful Forest Grill on the mountain-side lateral just west of Rio Bravo. Dinner: St. Remy; the Charcuterie at Barbara's Bazaar.
  9. There was a foto infraction for one of our vehicles on a day following one we knew had been in GDL. It was definitely our vehicle. At first we thought the date might be a data entry problem, but no. The vehicle had gone into a specialty repair shop lakeside the morning after we returned from GDL and the owner had taken the vehicle to GDL for no reason related to the repairs needed on the vehicle. Guess who doesn't do any further work on our cars?
  10. Whether using a Notario will fly is entirely dependent on the US based entity asking you to have the document notarized. Best to ask the requester whether they will accept notarization by a Notario in Mexico.
  11. Have I missed a separate post? Nothing here since November, 2017? Looks interesting. Definitely west of Pemex on the Lake (mauka) side of the carretera. Guess I need to just plunge in without recommenations. Happy New Year to one and all.
  12. By Catalan do you mean he is from Coyuca de Catalan in the state of Guerrero? Or, from the Catalan region of Spain? Or,?
  13. Using Strom (before they sold to White and become Strom-White) we broughta 53 foot trailers, piggy-backed another bunch of personally-important "stuff, and on our own later made two trips in a large SUV stuffed to the max. To this day we never regret the cost of bringing across the border those items we had carefully/thoughtfully selected over the years. Not every one chooses to invest so carefully in material goods, but if you do it is important to bring with you those items that make a difference in your daily life. There are ways of replacing the items you left behind or items that come to the end of their useful life, but in the meantime it is not so easy to replace the simple pleasures of prepping vegetables with an excellent knife or a bringing to life a lamb stew in a Le Creuset dutch oven or sinking into a DWR chair to read another book. BTW: I think Thomasville is available in Mexico City. thomasvillemexico.com.mx . Of course, if NAFTA fails, we may all be back to requesting friends and family to bring peanut butter, etc. with their visits.
  14. On Friday morning at Superlake, there were numerous packets of whole cranberries in one of the freezers at the west end of the bulk package aisle as well as a few in the open refrigerator section at the east end.
  15. In addition to writing in your Res. Perm or Res Temp at the top of the form, be sure to mark the purpose for returning to Mexico as "other" -- nothing else.
  16. We & family members travel enough to have extra current FMM forms on hand at home where we fill out the form before leaving for the airport where we then stop at the INM window and receive the various stampings and notations (and another one or two FMM forms) -- kinda the best of both worlds (old fashion and modern.) Even if the form changes. having all the information on the completed form makes quick work of filling in a new iteration. Among the advantages of completing the forms manually is to be sure that Res Perm or Res Temp is printed on the top of the return form and "other" is the box checked for purpose of entering Mexico.
  17. I always have two and occasionally 3 cell phones (2 U.S. # and 1 Mx #) + cellular IPad & sometimes a laptop -- even when I have gotten the red-light, no problema. All clearly in-use.
  18. A U.S. notary operating in Mexico (other than in the U.S. consular office which is of course jurisdictionally the U.S.A.) is not taking the acknowledgment in accordance with the laws of the place where the acknowledgment is made. The White Paper is concerned with notary acknowledgements taking place within the United States and relies upon the constitutional principle of full faith and credit between the states within the United States. Notary acknowledgments are typically required for real property transaction or for documents controlling real property transactions. Title companies and title attorneys (depending on the state where the transaction is taking place) who take their responsibilities seriously will require an expat to either return to the U.S. to sign the document or obtain notary from the nearest consular office.
  19. My friends, my family and I all love Ninette. The food, the service, the setting (and especially the patio in back) have been excellent.
  20. Alcalde, Allium and Alariz -- culinary magic at work. Two of the three sport chefs who trained in San Sebastian, Spain -- the modern culinary mecca.
  21. The location is definitely out of the way BUT so was Emiliano Zapata and the parking is infinitely better at the new location: they have their own parking lot. Some of us will go very far - even to the stars - for an enjoyable meal in a lovely setting. My plan is to get there this week and to encourage them to start posting their existence on the web board.
  22. Has anyone been to St. Remy du Lac since they opened in the new location below the Panteon? ( I posted detailed directions back in November.) The hours posted are 12 noon to 11 pm.


    Last year, the "drought" in the ataulfo mango supplyat Superlake ended toward the end of November.
  24. Yesterday we found St. Remy's new location. Oh Happy Day! The route we took: Turned off the carretera onto Las Flores (Don Pedro restaurant, French Bakery, new brew shop) heading makai ( toward the Lake.) Turned right at Ocampo. Passed the Panteon on the right. Turned left onto San Pedro (first street to left after the Panteon.) Kept driving until we noticed a newly painted wall (smashing tangerine color) and turned right onto a no-sign (LOL) street. A young man was working outside #10 A and we inquired if a restaurant would be opening there? Yes. St. Remy? Yes! When? Aiming for November 16. The FB page for St. Remy du Lac also has "directions" (click on "about") and gives the street address of Calleon San Francisco #10 which on Google Earth matches the above findings (do not use "search" as it will send you to Riberas; just negotiate to the neighborhood using the above directions and look for a U-shaped street east of where Urea dead-ends.. There seem to be more than one FB page so be sure to open the page that includes the SF address and has a photo of plated foie gras. Two phone numbers given: 376-766-0607 and 331-603-7343 Book Now Save Callejón de San Francisco #10 Ajijic 45920 3767660607; 3316037343
  25. We call upon Luis Miramontes for airport transportation. Usually book by email and otherwise communicate by texting. Luis responds quickly. Great service.
