Join fellow sanmiguelenses in this 4th annual community event. Savor the very best San Miguel has to offer in foods prepared inside the kitchens of our town’s most trendy gourmet restaurants while at the same time sampling the flavors provided by our street carts and food trucks. We are confident Donnie and Angela and their seasoned team again, will out do themselves.
(Any business or individual can sponsor a VIP Club newsflash! We send out over 1700 to our members once to twice a month. Cost to sponsor a flash is 1500 pesos.)
Sixteen years have gone by since we first launched Your VIP Club. There’s probably a novel’s worth of tidbits regarding Club’s existence and history considering how San Miguel has been in a constant flux.
It’s mind-boggling how our artists utopia, mostly known as colonial and ancestral mountain town hosting art and language schools has emerged into a Mecca for national and international tourists! Just utter you’re from San Miguel and in most places in Mexico and there’s no need to even mention “Allende”.
Your Club has expanded along with our town. At first we just worked with restaurants. After 16 years, Your Club has never been more diverse or robust! Yet a Club cannot exist without its membership its participating restaurants and other businesses, and would be a mere ghost without a loyal and supportive base,
If you’ve been paying attention, why lately, there’s been a another major spike in restaurant openings. There are the new, the gentrified along with some opening additional locations! There’s new, spiffy food-courts, along with a couple of, other food-a-ramas coming soon now under construction. Venues vary from foodie-lovin’, chef-driven joints, to family establishments, to those operated by the courageous, “Hey! Let’s open a restaurant!” crowd. Your Club loves them all. Prosperity is good yet often there’s a downside considering. crowds, congestion and crime. Inflation and greed too often come into play. Facts are: What once went for 15 pesos a decade ago now goes of 65-75-85! Competition is fierce.
Your Club will eagerly continue to engage restaurants and businesses aiming to provide discounts and publicize local business. The idea or perception that participating establishments might not embrace your membership is the far from the truth! The number one complaint Your Club hears back from participating businesses: They say they don’t see enough members employing their VIP cards! So please always consider giving local businesses a considerate shot while flashing your card even if you deem not to use it.
Your Club again sincerely pays homage to those who have placed their faith and money with us since May of 2000, from the first-half-dozen, initial members who signed-up on day-one, and as we thank brand new member who may have just joined last week. Your Club continues to strive to provide guaranteed savings while enabling members to receive super and solid service.
Your VIP Club welcomes Luna de Queso II, Centro, with a second great location, Jesus #2, 152-6558 open Monday through Saturday, 8:30 – 5 pm. Many know of our Mariana’s initial location, Salida a Celaya #51, with an amazing variety of cheeses and gourmet selection of groceries, prepared, yummy foods, too many to mention in this flash. Now that same great assortment is available at the new location that's spacious and roomier. Even bigger news, now for VIP Club members it is 10% off (cash only) shelf, chill case and prepared food items rather than just on prepared foods. Best wishes and best of luck. (Word has it the older Salida location will soon be moving nearby)

The membership has experienced an emotional bruising couple of weeks, a difficult time, considering the establishment of so many warm and personal relationships over the years and then dealing with loss. Let it be a lesson; try to treat each other kindly, as if it might be the last time you see each other. It just might be!
