Hola blogsters, it’s been a minute, but I have been busy.
Let’s see, where shall we start?
The hotel near the Parque de Independencia is really coming along nicely (photos below). They have been working on the hotel for almost a year and from a peek in the lobby, it is going to be very nice. It is hard to pin down information about the place as far as price and guest policies. Once I can get some confirmed information I will pass it on.
David Lee has been hard at work putting together some drink specials that will be in effect throughout the summer. Go to www.thesportsbar.blogspot.com for more information.
Tuesday night, The Hard Rock Cafe had a fashion show on El Conde. I was scrumptuos dinner at the time and couldn’t make it. Luckily, John K. was able to get a few shots (below) for me. No ones for sure when it will be open again. All I hear is “very soon.”
Sometimes I go to the Caribe Colonial for breakfast. It is really nice seeing the hotel being patronized by a nice cross-section of gay people. Unfortunately, there are also those who sometimes act like “hillbillies.” Of course you know the type I’m referring to. Loud, obnoxious, always ready with an inappropiate comment. There is one such person staying there now. All it takes is one person to give everyone else a bad name.
Paul Culver, a great photographer from California is in town. He finally took some photos of the bartender at ARENA. I hope to have a few to wet your appetite soon. Hint to you Paul!
My friend John and I have been looking at apartments and houses in the Colonial Zone. It is AMAZING what is available. From remodeled condominiums to small colonial houses for sale. I have seen the all in the last couple of days. While looking at an apartment John and I were looking off the balcony and spotted, like a bald eagle, a beautiful man walking down the street. I then had to see him close up. Lovely, just lovely. Summer is my favorite time of the year. (photos below)
I’m going to go to the Book Fair this weekend before it leaves. Everyone that has gone has been tremendously impressed with how nice it is. Angel Lozado’s reading is tomorrow and I am going to try my best to make that. I also believe that this week is Jay-Dee’s legendary hostess, Koki, is having a birthday party this week. I got the invitation, but can’t remember if it is this week or next. Will keep you posted.
That is all I can think of right now.
I’m off to drum up more blog items.
