This VIP Club Newsflash is being sponsored by GAS PROVIDENCIA (DON’T RUN OUT OF GAS! CALL THE TRUCK DIRECT 415-109-5357)
GAS PROVIDENCIA, has been serving San Miguel and a participating VIP Club business for ten years.
Gas Providencia has gained a rgoo eputation touted by the membership earns points for Professionalism, Service & Honesty!
VIP Club Cardholders receive 65 centavos off each litro purchased from Providencia either if paying with cash or by credit card.
Emphasis within these newsflashes usually features events and dishes provided by the VIP Club’s line-up of our one-hundred or so participating restaurants. Yet, within this flash, we are going to change the focus a bit!
So we ask, please don’t forget the almost 100 other local businesses & services hoping to develop local customers who reside in San Miguel and who are strong supporters of The Club.
Soon perhaps, many of you will be thinking about the gift-giving season and Your Club wishes to share examples of some options available right here in town that also offer VIP Club members discounts.
Hopefully what we post below will be eye-catching and provide gift giving ideas!
Let’s get rocking!

VIP Club member PAUL DICKSON, has just published:
Paul G Dickson, has published a new eBook about a ten month meander with wife, Helen, in 2007. San Miguel de Allende was going to be their starting point.
Ironically we would return to San Miguel eight months later to live full time.
However, during the proceeding eight months we wandered through other parts of Mexico, into the States and Canada, camping on and off for three months through National Parks and all over the Rockies, from Canada to the Galapagos Islands. We also did a stint in Cuba.
The stories about our travels are now on Amazon. All proceeds are going to Animal Rescue Organizations. GO to amazon.com, go to books, new releases (it’s also listed under the Travel section) and type in – “Let’s Pack and Go!”
Join author, travel and cooking expert, Kris Rudolph, of El Buen Cafe fame, on a Delicious Expedition: “The Magic of Michoacán Tour,” March 4–11, 2023.
“Be dazzled by the beauty and indigenous heritage of Michoacán. Ancient traditions run deep in this central Mexican state, home to the descendants of the Purépecha Empire as well as generations of noted artisans. This area drips with history and charm; lush forests and picturesque lakes. We’ll delve into the amazing culture of this land with expert guides while touring artisan studios and visiting village homes. We’ll explore the region’s ancient cuisine, meeting and cooking with cocineras tradicionales, acclaimed women who continue to use indigenous ingredients and practices. Their effort resulted in Mexican cuisine gaining UNESCO status as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2010.“
