(Any business or individual can sponsor a VIP Club Newsflash – read intently by over 2000 local subscribers, 2000 pesos.)
Hoping all had a cool Yule. At the same time wishing a not so frantic first as we ease into 2022. This is the second the three consecutive week’s of Newsflashes (an anomaly) that we promised the 17th. There is so much new news we can’t post it all in one flash.
Once again, sanmiguelenses showed their spunk and big hearts coming to the aid of scores of struggling Haitian immigrants dropped off here trying to survive while inching their way to the border.
Our fellow town folk gathered warm clothes, provided shelter and meals and raised go-fund-me cash that would help fuel them further northward by public transportation.
Residents of all persuasions answered the call. Not knowing all the players we don’t want to single individuals out with fear of failing to mention someone worthwhile, but a shout-out has to be givem out to VIP Club participating restaurant EL TIO PABLO, aka: “The Grill Father,” of Mexiquito, who didn’t need nudging and who jumped right to it preparing over 50 litros of chicken soup to those folks in need right then and there!
HEROES! Uncle Pablo & Luca Brasi.

No worries both Brit and Henry, who’ve immensely contributed to making San Miguel a legit art colony will still be around and will continue to create art in San Miguel but prefer to not have to go to work.

In our last flash, Your Club offered a handsome Madam Loo Chinese Astrology poster if any member could guess how many email flashes would be opened by subscribers in the first 24-hours. All flashes from our Mailchimp platform go out at 5:00 a.m. We send out 2000. The amount that have been opened in within 24-hour time-frame in the last four flashes have been between 900 – 1077.
Member, Renne Markulin came the closest with her guess of 983, with 1077 opened in the first 24-hours. She won a Madam Loo poster (22″ X 29.5″) featuring her Chinese Astrology sign, The RAT. Thanks to all who participated.
In your Club’s last flash we welcomed SAN CHILAQUIL RESTAURANT, Hacienda al Molino #29, Fracc. Brisis, or just behind Cruz Roja 415-121-7805, Wednesday through Monday, serving breakfast and lunch ’til 5:00 pm. Alejandra is your host.

Your VIP Club also welcomed GIRASOL, Zacateros #4, 415-152-2734.
Sometimes things get lost in translation and when principle sewer Socorro was telling me Girasol makes larger sizes, was not because they specialize in full-figure women’s clothing (sic, my words) it’s reasoning is because women north of the border are larger in stature and wear bigger sizes than Mexican ladies and that is what Girasol became famous for, a north of the border fit. And I should keep my mouth shut while I am ahead of the game.
10% off marked goods with min. of 500 peso purchase.
