    Your Club is always willing to promote and post individual members' special events or interests along with events occurring in VIP Club establishments'. Yet Your Club only sends out such news flashes when there's an announcement germane to the club. We promote all events as courtesy but can never guarantee anything that's time sensitive. We would have loved to post some of the recent openings that just took place in some of our members' establishments but Mean Ole Mr. Lightning, fried a modem and put us out of business, news flash wise.

     We're in the midst of high season and much is happening. Here are some goings on taking place around town provided by some of your fellow members.

     Galeria Le Noir, Jesus 2-A, is cranking out  an ongoing exhibit that's eye opening and thought provoking with artist: Enrique Gullien's,"Interlaced Nudity," a series of erotic images.

    Yam Designer's Gallery, inside Instituto Allende, also show cases an intriguing artist's exhibition to view. "Blessed in Hell," paintings by Donald Johnson who's currently serving life in prison. Johnson's previous exhibit at Yam was a sellout.
