August 24, 2009

This VIP Club Newsflash is sponsored by Viajes San Miguel, 152-2537. Earn free shuttle trips to and from Leon's airport.

     Your VIP Club welcomes back into the fold, Petite Bar, Hernandez Macias #95. Older members remember Petite and Market Bistro were a charter member restaurant and bar that have been with the club since the year 2000. Sanmiguelense and long time VIP club member, Tomas LeNoir, has taken the reigns. Right now it is just a bar. The restaurant portion of the establishment is on temporarily on hold. Cooked food is on the near horizon. This weekend look for a hot rock reggae band Friday and Saturday nights. VIP Club members may take 15% off their tabs after they exceeds 100 pesos and in cash.

If any members are planning on traveling to Mexico City in the near future and would like to lap up the luxury of a fine-fine hotel, Your Club recommends STADIA SUITES, Colonia Santa Fe, Salvador Agraz #60. check out their webpage Colonia Santa Fe is a brand new neighborhood, something out of a futuristic movie, with a mix of modern skyscrapers and other commercial establishments. Within feet of Stadia Suites is the Santa Fe Mall, described as the largest and most modern in Latin America. The area is not all that close to downtown Mexico City or the airport, which is the only downside, but Stadia Suites is state of the art with spacious suites with all the amenities including wireless, super-duper security, room service, spa and tastefully furnished with complete kitchens and widescreen cable TV and bathrooms deluxe. Here's the best part: VIP Club members can take a whopping 50%, that's FIFTY, off Stadia Suite's rack rates. Your Club will soon establish discounts other hotels in nearby states.

  VIP Club member Gordon Jett for sometime has helped people who need help with hearing, sight issues and location issues. (somebody help me I can't get up!) Gordon has parlayed this help into a cottage industry business. He has a slew of items that can help with the above mentioned maladies. He has graciously agreed to give fellow members 10% off of what he calls high-quality products. Contact Gordon at 152-2621 or email him at
