If you haven’t noticed the town seems to being going through an “Asian Invasion,” when it comes to restaurants. Oriental based dishes have all-of-a-sudden blossomed and created enthusiasm introducing a wide variety of Eastern themed restaurants. Throughout this flash we will sprinkle examples of some of the fine Asian dishes available from participating VIP Club restaurants.

In addition, two new restaurants have joined our super line up of fine eateries. Also, to continue The Club’s effort to become more diversified we have a long awaited fully-stocked hardware store to join our ranks. Look for the details in our next flash since we weren’t able to firm up our deal prior to this flash.

Of course we are gearing up for the big-timr, one-day BAJIOGO 15th anniversary, airport-shuttle coupon promotion. to-or-from either Queretaro or Leon’s airports, a $330 USD value for $150 USD or equivalent in pesos. We will repeat our message to readers in the body of this flash while still offering those who take advantage of the promotion an opportunity, via a drawing at the end of that day, for two people to bask and enjoy a full week at the Bahia de la Luna beach side resort in Oaxaca that will be given away being generously donated by the Fields’ family as part of the 15 year celebration.

Two of your Club’s hallmark restaurants will be going through major changes. We will post impassioned messages those establishments have composed and wish to share with the membership in this flash.
