for all, whether you need it or not…can it hurt? Coming this Monday, the 15th, just in time to moan about filing your US tax return, the 3rd anniversary of Ocelot….5-6pm, open bar…well, not quite but the lower end stuff is free…perfect timing since a lot of the more….uh, ‘serious drinkers’ have left for the States.

top this! or send in your own experiences with the maid hiding stuff…I thought it was just me/mine but Mike Chrisman has a story about a set of salvaged wine corks being used in a game….and where did she put them? in the oven….I feel a little bit better, but if you can top it, do so..no rewards other than mutual WTF’s…

Bobby Darling/Moriah Sterling, setting up at Caffe Bourbon, Rumi(i finally went in)looks fine…Neils’ ‘Gastro Pub doing fine, Nido Antigua empty….lotta spaces vacant: guess that Semana Santa didn’t quite pan out as expected.

Angie, Lou and the girls goofin’ on the sidewalk while the band sets up…el Muro? Max back from Roatan(West End, my fave)remarking on the prices for beer/booze…hey, it’s an island…like Hawaii, everything comes in by boat and there’s a ‘surcharge’…get over it…that said, El Muro is hosting a private party on Sunday, usually their ‘closed day’…if it works, they’ll cater to  the same group…and no, i’m not disclosing..ask Max.


Los Arcos! rockin’ to the sound of a Cuban/Mexican beat…the violinist, whom i think(always a question)played with Ignacio for a while…this guy is killer…reminds me of Willie Royal of Willie and Lobo…cranks stuff from the strings that almost makes one…well, he’s great..the pianist, on a Korg, made it sound like an accordian..Piano M and Moriah playing to a packed house at Caffe Bourbon…Henrik of dos Reilly’s watching the door, with a decent crowd..Chez Christophe doing a room full, Las Palmas empty…DV(and the ever delicious Claudia there)doing a few tables..and the wireless just kicked in…’was rnnning moviestar as backup..who figured?…
