A HEARTWARMING SUCCESS
San Felipe made me very proud at the benefit for Irene Smith. The town really stepped up to the plate to help one of our most colorful characters. This event was put together in a very short & crazy week but all it took was a couple of phone calls and the ball was rolling. I want to thank Rick Rudd, Sam & Diane Grubb and Rebecca & Jim Mann for jumping on the band wagon immediately with phone calls & e-mails flying. Then Denny & Sandy Flannigan called & said let’s do a benefit and that was off & running too. All it took was a few phone calls and the locals were in. VATOS LOCOS with the help of Denny Flannigan, The 2AM Band & The Baja Boys did not hesitate when asked to become involved, “What, a local woman in need?” count us in was all I heard. One quick meeting with the manager of La Vaquita, Sergio Leon (my new hero) & we had the perfect venue and a percentage of the sales, no questions asked.
I can not possibly thank everyone by name but please know that you all have Lisa’s, Irene’s and my undying gratitude. I would like to thank Rebecca Mann & Lisa Shackelford (Irene’s daughter) for working the door for the entire event. You girls were awesome. My heartfelt thanks to Sam & Diane Grubb, 2 people you definitely want on your side no matter what. Thanks also goes to Denny & Sandy Flannigan for taking care of the printing & distribution of the flyers & posters. Sergio Leon at La Vaquita for stopping whatever he was doing on the day of the event to get me whatever I needed and thanks to Mexico Living and Kat’s Korner for helping spread the word.
I expected the people who know & love Irene to be ready & willing to help but what really touched my heart were the out-of-towners & people who did not know her that just heard about a woman in trouble and wanted to help by making a donation. For instance, the day of the event I met a group of people from Argentina who came to La Vaquita for lunch. They had no idea what was happening. When they questioned me & I gave them a short explanation they said they were really amazed at the sense of community they saw & immediately went to the table and made a donation.
In closing, I want to thank the weather Gods for providing us with the perfect sunshiny day and the town of San Felipe for making me proud I call this home.

I had a friend of mine, Neil Whitney, join me onstage as a guest DJ. Neil
was the DJ years before we got here and is currently selling at El Dorado,
so the folks who remembered him got to re-experience their old memories and the energy in the room was insane. It was smooth as
silk and we were done in time to stop by the Jolly Mon which had a much different crowd than we did but it was very happening with lots of folks and I think everyone had a very successful and prosperous NYE.I think as of last night, we broke the record for the longest conga line in SF at a full 180... Could be wrong but the room was packed and no one was seated.
Theses photos only show about a fifth of the room but you get the idea. It's always a treat to have a night that filled with such over the top fun!
Arts Juried Photo Show - ARTS (Artists of Todos Santos) is excited to announce our 1st annual juried photography show at Cafelix starting Feb 4th. In order to make this more of a community event, we have decided to make this show open to everyone who lives here, or in BCS in general. All work will be juried by 2 experienced US judges who are coming to Todos Santos for this event. There are two categories – one being photos taken in, and representative of Baja California Sur, and the other being open to any photo. Prizes will be awarded for the best in show for both categories, together with awards for the winner and two runners up. All accepted work will be displayed in Visions gallery; however, only work submitted by people legal to sell their work in Mexico will be offered for sale.
We are looking forward to a big response from the community. To help us plan for the event, first download the rules and entry form from our website www.artistsoftodossantos.com (look under ARTS Events in the menu for the photo show article and link), and then e-mail us ASAP to indicate your intent to participate with the expected number of photos and their sizes. - Vic Kirby, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.artistsoftodossantos.com, 145-0586 (landline), Todos Santos

Baja Nueva is San Felipe’s premiere furniture, home decorating and gift store that is a "must visit" when in San Felipe. Located on Mar de Cortez in the Plazita, it is chock full of exciting and colorful items for the home. Original artwork, glass vases and plates, heirloom boxes, wall clocks, candles and holders, decorator shadow boxes and authentic local Indian pottery is just a small amount of the eye candy that keeps you looking from place to place in this wonderfully colorful and well laid out store.

It bears mentioning that there are some businesses that are doing so well that it’s time to open a second location. What business is that? Why, romance, of course! It makes sense that when fewer folks are able to go out on the town to wine and dine, there are some who will find ways to make staying home more fun than not. About a year ago, the lovely Lily Vega opened the first Sex City store in the strip mall (pun intended) across from SuperLey. Just this week, Lily cut the ribbon on her second location, located on the corner of Luis Encinas and Calle 13.

One of the wildest and craziest, most renowned places to party (and eat) in Cabo San Lucas is Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo. The menu includes Sammy's Drunken Shrimp, peppercorn crusted beef and many kinds of fresh seafood of the day. Nightly entertainment is provided by live bands and DJs (Sammy plays when he is in town). Look for the lighthouse jutting from atop the building, but don't be surprised if it is too packed to get in.

The Mongolian Grill has fast become Rosarito's favorite restaurant, having only been open a year it has already earned itself the "The Best Restaurant in Rosarito" title by our readers. If you enjoy good food, that's healthy and affordable, you'll love this place. They have several lunch items under $5 including Teriyaki Bowls, Korean Tacos, California Sushi rolls, large Asian Chicken Salads and, of course, the Mongolian BBQ (under $7). You will become addicted to a healthy way of eating. They are only two miles south of the Rosarito Beach Hotel, which is about 5–10 minutes from Diego's.
