  1. Everyone will have a different opinion on this, so she may have to try several until she finds one that suits her style. I never went to Guad for a cut or color, so can't offer opinions on that. I tried many Lakeside and, for me, the most consistent was Dario at Ocampo 185A in West Ajijic. 376-766-4908
  2. I totally get your points made above and I am going to drop this after making a few final points here. This was not a personal conversation between friends or acquaintances. This was an exchange between a business owner and a frustrated prospect. I see nothing wrong in making that exchange public in order to warn others of what they might be in for when dealing with this business owner. Being called a horrible human being and told to go f**k off was so way beyond any level of rudeness contained within my responses that it put me into revenge mode. So yes, sometimes in life, one gets back what one gives out.
  3. I've been thinking about your question, Tingting. Most likely, she purchases lists from outside sources. I haven't checked the privacy policies of this webboard yet, but obtaining the email addresses of its members would be like striking gold for her target market.
  4. @Dostortas I can appreciate your position, but I disagree with it, except for the part of it not being funny at all. It's not meant to be funny, and it's no joke. How is it that you came to the decision to avoid her and her ventures? My goal in spreading this around was to inform others of what lurks beneath the façade. The only tool I have to cast a wider net is social media. I wasn't hoping to make her look bad; she took care of doing that herself. If my posts have spared even one person from purchasing a subscription from her, then I'm fine with being considered the bully and the one who looks bad here.
  5. @Bisbee GalActually, one of her newsletters is called "Guadalajara Reporter." It has no connection with the weekly, The Guadalajara Reporter, that most of you pick up at a store or subscribe to online. Hers is guadalajarareporter.mx whereas the reputable one is theguadalajarareporter.net.
  6. After receiving unsolicited emails over the past week from the latter 2 media outlets and finding that the "unsubscribe" links within them led to "page not found" errors, I had the following email exchange with the "staff" there: I'm just reporting the facts as they appear in black and white and you all can draw your own conclusions. Funny, I just tried the "unsubscribe" links again and they are now working.
  7. Angus and More Liana...thank you for the hardest laugh I’ve had in a while!

    Sign said they were closed the 12th through the 19th of March.
  9. I had the exact same experience. The atmosphere is lovely; the food...not so much.
  10. Definitely better than Cocinart’s creme brulee. Always has been.
  11. Interesting that it’s already Thursday and not one person has commented yet. Let’s see... Bubba’s or any of the other restaurants that have been in that location, which now houses an attorney’s office Monte Cristo Reddy’s Sanwiches Aurora and Pepe’s (or vice versa) Junky Monkey Delirio Pizza Avocado Club
  12. Where is it stated that you cannot name the restaurant?
  13. I’m sure you wouldn’t have jumped to this conclusion if more information had been provided in the OP. Since I know some of the background, I’ll fill in the missing pieces. Nancy found this dog a few months ago. The dog was completely emaciated and had a severe case of mange. Someone’s pet? Looking for him as we speak? Not likely. She brought him to a vet and paid for all care and neutering. A friend is fostering (and has been training) this dog until a good home can be found. This dog is now healthy and adoptable thanks to two kind and caring women.
  14. Yes. They moved further east to Riberas. Asadero Mi Ranchito is on the carretera, lakeside, but I can’t recall exactly where they’re located. Maybe someone else can chime in.
  15. I agree with Gringal, although the former Guachería had stopped serving those fabulous empanadas a long time before they closed. The previous garlic bread was the same great sesame seed-topped bread they used for their sandwiches, so I wondered what bread is used for the sandwiches now. I ordered the ensalada mixta and asked for chicken to be added. It was good, but not like it was before. Sigh.
  16. You can order it from Amazon Mexico.
  17. They are most definitely in business! You should give it a try.
  18. She ate XXX at a friend's house. Assuming the friend(s) ate the same XXXX, what was their outcome? Minor edit by Mod5
  19. El Fogón de Charlotte had them listed on the specials board today. Most excellent. Very large chile with a wonderful stuffing, served with a beautiful green salad for 130 pesos. Definitely a winner.
  20. True, except I can never eat a whole pizza at one sitting, whereas I have no problem eating a whole calzone. Go figure!
  21. Yes, I think it's excellent, as are their pizzas.
  22. I'm pretty sure I've seen it in bars at Superlake. I've never seen it at Costco.
