3:) Instituto Allende's summertime Arts and Crafts Fair, rain or shine, the best in town, with over 80 of some of San Miguel's finest artists and craftspersons. This will be the sole Arts and Crafts Fair at Instituto for the season, Saturday and Sunday, July 21-22, 10 - 6 pm. Great shopping, live entertainment and lots of foods.

4:) San Miguel's favorite balladeer and former front man and co-founder of Vudu Chili, David Garza, aka Maple Lynx is visiting town and will have two performances this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, at Gusto Gathering Grounds, tented in case of . . . the corner of Guadiana & Mezquite, from 2 - 4 pm. Limited tickets available at Bajiogo, Jesus #11, 200 pesos or at the door if not sold out! Garza's performance will be recorded for a future CD as he does what many sense that he does best and that's performing Beatles cover tunes in his own tender and thoughtful way. Garza will be accompanied by the before mentioned percussionist Miguel Favero of Zambe. Easy going, laid back and a town favorite this is likely to be Garza's last concert in this neck of the woods for some time. If you've never heard David play and sing you've missed a rare treat.

Oh yeah, that loco Lymie, what's his name? who owns and operates Longhorn Smokehouse BBQ is getting all geared up and excited about the Olympics taking place back hometown, London, for Whatshisname!

Ole Whatshisname is so riled up he's gonna have "mucho" TVs going all during the Olympiad and here's the hard stuff . . . if a Brit wins a Bronze medal and you're in the audience for the event, it's 2 X 1, drink wise, and if one of Her Majesty's subjects wins a Silver medal and you're in the audience, it's 3 X 1 for your next round and, get this, if someone or a British team wins Gold and you're on hand at Longhorn, yeppers! 4 X 1. Longhorn will be open early everyday, as to not to miss an Olympic event taking place over the pond. See all the sports action and feast on BBQ! Thank you Whatshisname!

Your Club has gotten wind also that VIP Club participating restaurant and bakery, Cumpanio, on the corner of Recreo and Correo, has something special in store for the Olympics also yet they haven't provided us with full details but we will post them in our next newsflash.

Your Club mentions, especially to some who might be new to Mexico, about this time of year, when the rains first begin, to remember to clean fruits and vegetables with due diligence. You see, many farmers irrigate their fields with run off. Initial rains flood fields with many unmentionables. Be careful this time of year to avoid stomach illnesses.
