  1. Sorry--forgot to change my profile location. Now fixed. Without a car when we come to Ajijic, so (also sorry a bit off topic) walk almost everywhere, and sometimes have trouble spotting shops from sidewalks.
  2. Thanks, Wookie. ComputerGuy, is that the only TelMex in town? Tempted to fly down just to try the place!
  3. Where was the "old casino?"
  4. Did anyone suggest talking with the neighbor about the problem?
  5. Second Mirna's nomination. She's a wealth of information, works exceptionally well with house staff, and even coordinated our transportation between home (Ajijic) and GDL.
  6. As I earlier wrote, we have not been joined at breakfast by even one dog, and now I can report that the one smoker's smoke wafted up the mountain, away from the nonsmokers' tables; nevertheless, you get the last word, gringal. I give up. The thread is yours. I'm out of here, and am not so neurotic as to have to read any further responses.
  7. Thank you for your permission to continue the actual subject of this thread. Anyone else had breakfast at JD's? Your review will be very welcome here.
  8. Good grief. If you do not purchase a breakfast at this cafe, by definition you are not supporting it. I'm "being unnecessarily snippy without cause?" Please start a new thread to continue your rant, or buy a breakfast at James' and Don's place, and write a review, which is the subject of this thread. (By the way, my wife and I have eaten here three times, and have yet to see a dog in the place. Further, the prevailing breeze and the placement of the smokers' tables will blow any smoke away from the nonsmokers, and up the mountain.)
  9. I just call 'em the way I see 'em. Get over it.
  10. Well, well, well, and hmmmm. I see that the two threads formerly used for your no-dogs harangues were closed by our esteemed moderator, so you will either need to start another new one or continue your bashing here. Please begin a new thread, and beg the moderator to use a longer leash. I'm heading to JD's!
  11. Sheesh--what a bunch of moaners, with the semi-exception of you, Xena, due to your repentance. Have the rest of you nothing better to do with your time, than to complain about a restaurant through whose doors you are not going to pass? Yeah, the readers of this forum get that you aren't going to support James, Don, and their staff, regardless of the quality of their food. You more than adequately proclaimed your proclivities on the thread begun by Rick, which was the reason I escaped to offer a non-canine-oriented review of this restaurant. So, why don't you return to the other thread in order to continue your rants.
  12. I know that their sign says that they're open Thursday through Tuesday, but we ate there on this Wednesday. REGARDLESS, the flyer that Don gave to us--and the other folks in and near Bancomer--this morning (Friday, 25th) says, "Cerrado los Miércoles," and the last I knew, that means closed on Wednesdays, right?
  13. Update--Jimmy D's is closed on Wednesdays, as now corrected on original post. Returned, this morning, and the gang replicated my wife's and my experience of two days ago. Delicious!
  14. Hi, Alex GTO, and a very warm welcome to Chapala.com Webboard! We're all very glad that you're here, and want you to know how much we value your participation. Sometimes, it is hard to decide within which section we should most appropriately post something, not that it really matters all that much. Nevertheless, placing posts in the "right" places makes it a bit easier for some of us more senile residents to find answers to questions that we might have about certain topics. That's why I said that I moved your very first post to another, more appropriate, unspecified section. Maybe I meant that your post was originally placed in a "wrong" section, and I actually moved it to this one. Who knows? Especially other readers who may not frequently peruse this board. I'm just jerking you around, though; go ahead and try to find your post in some other section! Go ahead! Find it? Hehehe. No soup for you! Now, returning to myself: Alex GTO, I sincerely hope that you find some simpatico colleagues.

    OooLallaaaaa--tres bien!
  16. Lexy, that's why I began a new thread, not wanting to remain doggedly stuck in this one that had broken its leash and headed down a different hunt.
  17. I will not doggedly continue in this vein; rather, I have begun a new thread to provide a continuation of this thread's reviews of the cafe in question.
  18. (New thread because I don't want to mix or not mix Fido into my breakfast.) Jimmy D's Rainbow Cafe for breakfast! On Colon, west Plaza, in rear of the Plaza Suites 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM Closed Wednesdays My wife and I agree that this morning's breakfast, hosted by James and Donald, prepared by their chef and his assistant (sorry, guys, for not remembering your names), and served by Mario, was the best that we've had since chowing down at officialdom's-designated "Best Diner in Wisconsin," Frank's, in Kenosha (look it up, or even better, fly into Milwaukee, drive south for 35 minutes, and try it first hand: have their garbage plate!). Reminding us of the Early Bird Cafe, but with--is it fair to say, Rick?--a classy step up, James and Don have brought to Ajijic a thoroughly enjoyable culinary experience. My recollection is a bit foggy at the time of this writing; but, it seems to me that Rick's breakfast menu was fully represented in this cafe's particular incarnation. You've read Rick's announcement of the imminent arrival, résumés of the restauranteurs, and the later reports on this forum of Jimmy D's soft opening, so I'll not repeat any of the previous information. Instead, I'll just say that, from the freshly squeezed orange juice, great coffee, Rick's classic corned beef (hunks, not slices) hash with a couple of perfectly prepared fried eggs (I can't tolerate runny whites, but have to have slightly runny yokes!), mi cara sposa's bacon and eggs (wowed her), and the locally-baked-to-order thick-sliced whole wheat and white bread for toast, to the strawberry preserves made by the chef, and tiny sliced banana with a strawberry as garnish, the food was top-notch. Mario, our server, was right there when we needed him, but did not hover. The setting--beside the pool--was delightful, and noticeably free from flying critters. As we were the only diners at the time, we were not affected by any second-hand smoke (there are designated tables), and there were no visiting canines. We are truly fortunate to be able to eat almost all of our meals in the area's restaurants, so we're also able to fairly report that the quality, quantity, and value of our breakfasts were exceptionally high, and we have yet to find an experience comparatively equal. You really should not postpone visiting Jimmy D's, and when you get there, be sure to tell 'em that Lee and Sue sent ya!
  19. They certainly are, and they serve as our alarm clock every time they meet! ?
  20. Muchas gracias, ajijicbound! I've bookmarked the link for future use. Really nice resource. Thanks, too, ficklepie, although ajijicbound's link indicates that the parade is on Monday morning, with San Andres festival beginning in the late afternoon.
  21. Does anyone have a schedule of events for Monday's holiday?
  22. Thanks, everyone. As it turned out, I ended up at Lake Chapala Society on a day that the optometrist's clinic was open, and a very nice person fixed my glasses without charge.
  23. My wife and I can't wait to taste these folks' other menu items. I think that their Philly is better than what I've eaten in Philly!
  24. Yessss! Well done, HookEmHorns, and thank you for providing an excellent standard. How many a gringo(-a, -um) would try bargaining NOB? IMHO, bargaining behavior is symptomatic of either uninformed or just-plain-ignorant ugly "Americanism."
