VIP Club San Miguel: "The Smart Fit"



VIP Club Newsflash

This VIP Club Newsflash is being sponsored by Your Club, celebrating its 18th year as of May 1st.
We want to thank all present and past members for their support! Your Club has never been more robust, more diverse and as always geared to expand.

San Miguel continues to grow as does Your Club. Initially, in 2000, we had to sell the VIP concept to 20 restaurants without yet having one member. We enlisted our now over 20-year amiga and town yoga master Anabel Cardenas to help spearhead the effort; she acting as a go between. It wasn't til after a few years that some members who owned businesses other than restaurants asked to be included in the club. "Big shout out to you, Anabel!" (She reads the flashes).

We still have active members who joined the first week 18 years ago!

The mission remains the same: Promote local businesses; give members a price break, perhaps to help make them steady customers.

Lastly, dues will not increase in 2018.

Muchas Gracias

Suddenly, in the past two weeks, Your Club lost two close friends and longtime supporters.
The true gentleman, Juan Villasenor of "Ten-Ten Pie," and the beautiful and talented, Joanna Bryne previously of "Provecho,"

"Gone but not forgotten."
