Nineteen continuous years!
Who would have thunk?
Back in May of the year 2000 necessity became the mother of invention.
Much like today, we witnessed San Miguel restaurants packed on weekends, yet in most instances, during the week, patronage sunk to 10 – 15%.
“Consider giving locals a discount, rather than tourists you might see once in a lifetime?” 
That was our pitch to local restaurant owners along with saying. “By giving locals a break you can develop steady customers with less spoilage during off season and Your staff will get better tips!” 
That’s the pitch Your Club first employed. It’s the same pitch thrown by us today.

“Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
“Muchas Gracias!” to the thousands of members past and present!
“Muchas Gracias!” to the generous restaurants and other businesses who sense VIP Club affiliation provides more results than local media, a cost that doesn’t materialize until the cardholder shows to dine and spend.
“Muchas Gracias!” to our rock solid sponsors who supply the membership with our spiffy cards and who pitch in for the informative brochures, and who support Your Club’s webpage: and who also bolster Your Club’s Facebook page: And a special “Muchas Gracias” to our current membership, now more robust than ever.
Muchas Gracias!

Your Club welcomes FATIMA ROOFTOP, at Casa Blanca 7 Hotel, Juerez, #7, an elevated dining experience.

Continuing with Casa Blanca’s Mediterranean theme, presented by downstairs’ sister restaurant, Casa Blanca 7, Fatima presents, a “dinner only” menu eclectic in nature using fresh local ingredients expertly prepared by in-house-chef, J.J. Castenada.

From Fatima’s rooftop, marvel at San Miguel picturesque cityscape featuring our town’s significant church steeples’ jutting towards the evening sky. Dinner Hours: Sunday, Tuesdays & Wednesdays, 7:00 – 10:00 pm. Thursdays through Saturdays, 7:00 – 11:30 pm. For reservations 688-1438, or VIP Club members may take 10% off their bills at both Fatima and Casa Blanca 7 when paying cash or CC.

(Fatima, as well as Casa Blanca 7, Birdie’s, Taco Lab, El Vergel, The Bar at the R and The Restaurant, (Sollano #16) are under the umbrella and subject to the creativity of Chef Donnie Masterton?

Your VIP Club is welcoming TWO new restaurants just outside town. With centro sometimes being over-crowded on weekends outside of town restaurants can be appealing. New additions to Your Club are MANIA on the grounds on Los Senderos, and BASTARDO RESTAURANTE & BEER GARDEN.

MANAIA, restaurant and beach club, inside the Valle de los Senderos, 415-151-1434, Corretera 5.1 San Miguel – Dolores Hidalgo, open Tuesdays – Sundays, 9:00 am. 6:00 pm. Tasty and imaginative beachside cuisine for young and old with a full bar. Closest thing one can get to the beach while on the high chaparral. A slew of activities are readily for the entire family.

Just moments outside town Manaia’s summertime activities vary to a number of tastes. VIP Club members receive a 15% discount when paying cash and a 10% discount when employing a credit card for food and drink.

Armando is your host.

Your VIP Club also welcomes BASTARDO RESTAURANTE & BEER GRDEN, also on carretera San Miguel – Dolores Hidalgo, Km. 7.4, 415-181-7045

Chef Jorge, who stems from Mexico City, celebrates one-full year in business out in the campo. Situated right next door to another VIP Club participating restaurant, Smokednlow! Jorge’s menu varies from standard Mexican favorites, to yummy pork oriented dishes, to burgers and more. His dishes have received rave reviews. Full Bar.

Jorge has stated VIP Club members have been eating at the establishment asking about the card. He has decided to align his business with Your Club. VIP Club members may take 10% off their bill when paying cash.

Your Club would like to showcase other participating restaurants situated outside town or on the peripheral.

An Important message from Maria Fireman, provider of Shaw Satellite TV services here in San Miguel:

“Hello everyone:
“It has come to our attention there is misinformation being circulated regarding a possible problem with Shaw. Let me assure you there is no need for concern.

“I have received confirmation the only changes being made are UPGRADES to the channels which will enhance your TV reception. I will be sending everyone a chart that I have received from Shaw outlining the upgrades for 2019. Everyone has the correct receivers (which all of you know we already upgraded). No one should have interrupted service.

“In June we will complete the replacement of the old LNB’s (the part in the center of your satellite dish) in order to upgrade to the newer models. Approximately 80% have been already converted; the remaining LNB’s will be installed as soon as they arrive. Let me know whether you have any additional questions or concerns.”

To clarify Your Club’s affiliation with Cumpanio/Panio at all three locations. Food and beverage ordered off the restaurants’ menus enables members to get a 10% discount when paying cash with a 100 pesos minimum including up to a party of (4) as long as all is listed on one check.

As for shelf goods: Loaves of bread, pastries, coffees, jellies, kitchen utensils etc. Once a member spends 300 pesos then a 10% discount goes into effect when paying cash or NOW CREDIT CARD! Members might want to get two separate checks if buying groceries and then dining. There was some confusion about the discount yet Panio’s management is reinforming its team about how the VIP Club discount works at all three locations. (Thank you and thanks to Panio/Cumpanio for their generostiy.)
