Over in la Marina Plaza, where Coldwell Banker Real Estate and Max’s Café are located, there is a new little shop named CONSUELO´S ARTS & CRAFTS.  Although Consuelo didn’t have an official opening until May 1st, she made her first sale, to Sandy, the day before.  We (Sandy, Alicia, Claudia and Betty) were brunching outside on the patio of Max’s Café, when we spotted the new store filled with pewter, glass and ceramics from Tonalá and Tlaquepaque, Jalisco.  Wonderful things!  Pieces that you do not see anywhere else yet.  Go check it out, next to Max’s café, across the street (at the very end of Calle 13) from Hotel Peñasco Del Sol (used to be Plaza las Glorias).  Consuelo Chavez is the proud new shop owner.  You can call her at 38-8-3979 or her cellular 044-(638) – 112-1272.


Also new in Marina Plaza, down at the other end, next to the Sunset Grill, in-between the Mayan Resorts office and ERA Real Estate, is the slots of fun, LITTLE LAS VEGAS.  Vickie Emrick is the owner of Black Dog on Blvd Freemont, where the original slot room, Las Vegas, is located.  She phoned to tell me about opening the new location on Friday May 15th.  When she called, tom and I were on the highway, heading down to San Carlos.  We didn’t make it to the opening, but we certainly do have to admit to playing the slots a “couple times” at the Black Dog.  I am sure that I can drag Tom over to Little Las Vegas for a “photo shoot”.  They open at 10 am and do not close until 2am.  Try it, it’s “Slots of fun”!


Over on Sinaloa by the original Reggies 8/12 minismart (they have two stores now), on the west side of the street, toward the beach is very popular restaurant/bar Al Capone’s Pizza & Beer.  Great places to rink, eat, visit, discuss business, people watch, and even celebrate events, like Lannette´s 39th Birthday.


Anyway, Al Capone’s isn’t new, it is almost two years old but, there’s more.  Coming soon?  On Matamoros, the beach road, across from the Pink Cadillac, will be the new AL CAPONE´S GRILL & HIDEAWAY.  Word is that it will also be a restaurant/bar (but different than original), and it may be open by October.  Hope they’ll server ice cold Indio beer there, too!


Also on Sinaloa, just down from Al capons is GARIBALDIS RESTAURANT & SPORTS BAR.  Garibaldi’s isn´t new either, but it is newly re opened.  We used to hang out there.  Actually, the American Legion meetings were held there.
