    Inauguration day-alcohol restrictions

    I checked with Vino America and she said they will be selling alcohol. It is only election day where they are not allowed to sell alcohol according to her.
  5. My wife and I will be traveling to the U.S. and renting a car. Has anyone out there ever rented a car in the U.S. using their Mexican driver's license ?

    Forest Grill / Food Truck

    We stopped for lunch today at Forest Grill and were shocked at the disorganization and poor planning of this restaurant. After ordering a couple of Victoria beers, we tried to order the Buffalo Wings. We were told they didn't have wings. Then we tried to order ribs. Nope, out of ribs also. So we ordered a nachos plate and Chicken Pops. After a lengthy wait, we got our nachos and had to order Cokes because now they were out of beer. After the nachos were gone, we watched two sandwiches come out of the kitchen, then four more for a different table and then two more meals. We asked when we would be getting the Chicken Pops and were told they didn't have any Chicken Pops. They offered to fix something else, but by then we had been there for about one and a half hours. I don't know when, or even if, they were planning to tell us the rest of our meal wasn't coming, so today's lunch for the two of us was a shared plate of nachos. We won't be back!
  10. My husband and I have been going to Dra. Candy for the six years we've lived here. I was very surprised to read about the bad experiences people have had with her brother as a hygienist. Juan Pablo cleaned our teeth today and both of us were very pleased with the work he did. He was very thorough and yet gentle in the sensitive gum line areas. He took a half hour for the cleaning along with a bit of an exam and finished with polishing. We will continue being patients of Dra. Candy and her brother and will also continue recommending them both.
  11. I generally try to stay out of these board feuds but feel compelled to comment on this one. Dra. Candy has been my dentist for six years and has done an implant s well as veneers on my wife's teeth and the work has always been outstanding. Also, She also ALWAYS did the cleaning. I went to her office a short time go and discovered with no prior warning that it would be her brother that would do my cleaning. I had no problem with that because in the U.S.it was always the hygienist that did the cleaning. Well, the entire process lasted less that fifteen minutes and I felt that my teeth were not properly cleaned. I personally do not feel her brother has been properly trained and I will not go back. I also doubt that I will go back to Dra. Candy when she is off leave.
