    Your Club introduced "Call Buddy" last newsflash as an exclusive adage to your VIP Club. This is a 24 hour private service provided to VIP Club members by Carlos Gonzalez. 415-102-7949. Book mark that number. 

    Carlos is totally bilingual with long time San Miguel credentials. He is fully computer oriented and tech savvy. He has a list of doctors, lawyers, plumbers, electricians, locksmiths etc. etc. etc. available. The primary service offered to our membership, is that any hour of day, 24/7/365, if there's a problem or need, "Call Buddy!"

    It's slow season . . . consider supporting restaurants and businesses during this period. Restaurants aren't so crowded, dental appointments are easily available so forth and so on. Please consider, now is the time to support local enterprise.

   At the same time, we will be posting as an attachment a list of recent businesses to sign up with Your VIP Club. Often when we quiz these new businesses asking if they have gotten any action from card carrying members they say NO! Members, please take the time to review all businesses and serves available to members and know those proprietors are eager and willing to provide the discount. Please, even if you prefer NOT TO USE YOUR CARD, give the merchant the mental comfort of them knowing you may have shopped their business because of the Club. They will and The Club appreciates it.  

      Rod Molot's Orquidia Restaurant, Thai food, is moving off Umaran to Zacateros #83. Look for reopening soon.

   Congrats to VIP Club participating restaurant, Pizza Pig being named by that guy who writes restaurant reviews, in the third person, about himself yet a self-proclaimed foodie for choosing Pizza Pig best pizza in town, even though they are out of town and a well deserved accolade. Congrats to our Timmie Mac and his resilient crew. 

    Plus the food review guy also tabbed VIP Club Restaurant La Bodega La Chu, Correo #34, as having the very best Paella in town for their Sunday primary meal!

    Monex financial has closed their San Miguel office. Some VIP Club members may have had accounts there. All VIP Club members should be aware that Your Club has arrangements with Ci Banco, San Francisco #25 with two, other,in-town locations that Our members get a higher rate than posted when cashing in dollars for pesos or visa versa and also, Our Members get check cashing privileges. All one has to do is go see Josefa.

    Your Club wishes to point out, during this time of year, especially to those new to San Miguel that this time of year is often sick time. Things are dry and dusty and some nasty stuff is in the air. Plus, when the more serious rains first come many of the farmers' fields are irrigated by run off and unmentionables pour in and help irrigate many of our fresh fruits and veggies. Sterilize your produce with extra care this time of year. Those of you who might have sensitive systems we recommend taking preventive natural substances available in health stores. Your Club wants all to stay happy and healthy.
