The skulls are still generating revenue for the upcoming early-in-the-New-Year, Infant Literacy Program at Los Mangos Library. The auction starts now: www.myminiauction.com/karmacharityauction
Kudos to Bill Brooks for a great idea five weeks ago; to all the artists who worked hard creating such a mix of style, colour and pizzazz for their particular calaveras. To all the people who paid good money to ensure their ‘votes’ were placed properly, this note/invite from Casa Karma owner Georgia Darehshori: “On Monday, the 14th, we are going to have an appreciation celebration event for all the participants… creators, voters, people who bought decorated skulls.  We shall serve wine and light appetizers; if anyone wants anything else, there will be a cash bar. People can pay for and pick up their auction items then. I am hoping that people from the library will speak about where the funds are going and we shall also present the money to the library then. The festivities will start around 6 pm before sunset, but the announcements won’t happen until 7pm.” See everyone there!
My sister, Patrice, is here from Canada to help me celebrate my 65th birthday on the 9th at Langostino’s so we have been eating. And eating. (She will be charged by the airlines for extra baggage on her return flight!) We have grazed recently on fries and gravy, otherwise known as Poutine sin queso!, at Seasons P.V, more than once. A huge bowl of French fries drowning in thick beef gravy made from scratch. Absolutely the best in Vallarta.
Teeny burger sliders at 116 Pulpito; great big burgers at Los Muertos Brewing; incredible seared tuna and a double cheeseburger at Sapphire Ocean Club. We topped the week off at make-your-own Bloody Mary that happens at the Bar at Casa Karma every Sunday: gigantic glasses of juice, salted rim, spices and then added shrimp, bacon, asparagus, baby corn, hearts of palm, olives and so much more so from this overfed gourmand to you, that is it….From Here!
