     Your VIP Club welcomes the services of "THE SKIN CLINIC!" The Skin Clinic is located in Malanquin, Malaga #34,, 152-2466 or 122-0013, Appointments Mondays-Wednesdays-Fridays.  Under the stewardship noted plastic surgeon, Dr. Mauel Velazquez, "The Skin Clinic" offers a number of NON-SURGICAL procedures, all to enhance the health of your skin. A sampling: micro peel, dermal lift skin tightening, liquid facelift, lip augmentation or rejuvenation, Botox, eye opener, acne away, no more hair anywhere, spider vein treatment, intradermic skin rolling. obagi/chemical peels and wake up with make up forever.  Retail price for most of these procedures run 100 dollars or lower and VIP Club holders can take another 10% off. Geez, even I am feeling more beautiful just reading yet I might be a hopeless case but you aren't!

     Hallmark and charter VIP Club participating restaurant Bugambilia, San Miguel's very first fine-dining restaurant renowned for their Chiles en Nagada, since 1945 has moved from its Hidalgo location to Sollano #21. A change of pace will have Bugambilia open for breakfast-lunch and dinner. As of this posting they are almost ready to reopen and will open perhaps reopen this upcoming weekend. Why not stop by and wish Mercedes continued success.

    Contrary to rumor, Bobo of Mezzanine, Cuna Allende, #11 wants members to know they are not moving or selling or closing but are opening another restaurant down at the beach. For the month of September, Mezzanine offers VIP Club members 15% off rather than the standard 10%. 

    Just to put the kabash on another rumor floating around . . . Seems our propane Gas Company, Providencia is making impact with their VIP Club 7% rebate when members order a 1000 pesos worth in tanks. One of their competitors is saying that Providencia is not authorized to be in San Miguel and if someone had an emergency gas leak, well their competition is falsely reporting the fire department would not respond because they aren't authorized! This is total bunk! Rumors like that start when a company offers honest, cracker jack service and begins to make impact in the community. The guys on the truck are an all-star team from the ranks of Providencia and were especially chosen to come to San Miguel from other routes around the state. Your Club has received a number of verbal and written testimonials from members very-very happy with their service and confident they are now getting their true monies worth along with the rebate by being a VIP Club member.
      Hear great guitar with your Sunday Brunch at Harry's 10 am until 2 pm, Saturdays and Sundays!
