Editor’s Note: March 8 – 14

Tomorrow, which is the day before this comes out, I will be at Iguana Restaurant for the sold out SPCA Brunch Fundraiser. Let me tell you; this is the greatest meal of the year. And it includes a fabulous fashion show featuring the clothing and accessories from Maracuya, which if you haven’t been, is one of the very best boutiques in Vallarta.

But back to the food. Every Sunday you can have brunch at the Iguana Restaurant located inside the luxurious Casa Kimberley, previously Elizabeth Taylor’s home. While gorging on prime rib, eggs benedict with real hollandaise, a prawn cocktail that is to die for and fresh made churros I’m still dreaming of, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of the city and bay in a very elegant setting.

Seriously, this diet failed before it even started.

What do you think of the cover? Isn’t that a great painting? Flip over to page 23 to read all about Sam Botkin and his upcoming show that launches on Friday evening during the always-popular Southside Shuffle. Sam has both a great talent and a sense of humour. What more do you need, right?

Next week we have the kick off to St. Patrick’s Day with a couple of events on March 14th. The first is an afternoon charity fundraiser at Murphy’s Irish Pub in support of the Jay Sadler Project that includes an all-you-can-eat buffet of traditional Irish food. Then starting at 4pm on the Malecon in front of Murphy’s there is live music and entertainment for CelticFest. And if that wasn’t enough, you have the all day and all night shamrock extravaganza that is St. Patrick’s Day at Puerto Vallarta’s only Irish Pub on March 17. All the details are in this week’s paper. Enjoy.

It was lovely to see so many people out at Riverfest this past weekend. I hope you all got out and supported this three-day music festival that is the primary fundraiser for Pasitos de Luz. Congratulations to everyone who volunteered, the performers and the children of Pasitos. It was another rocking event!

There are still so many events happening around the Bay. The newspaper this week is filled with things to do including the very intriguing 18th Edition of the PV Int’l Film Festival which is premiering The Wonders of the Sea, directed by Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of the legendary explorer and conservationist Jacques Cousteau on March 12 at the movie theater in Galerias.

We are out of space, again. It’s been a fantastic season so far, and I have you all to thank for that. Please continue to support all of our advertisers and let them know you found their information in the Vallarta Tribune.

Safe travels, Madeline
