A Few Favorites

I decided to revisit a couple of my favorite bars today in the area close to where I live. The first one is a small place with now name out front. As you may recall, last year I found out that the name of this place is La Gloria de Infierno or The Glory of Hell.

La Gloria de Infierno


It sounds much worse than it is. It is actually just a small place with a couple of tables and a cement bar in the back. You don’t see many tourists in here, in fact I have never seen any except me and whoever I come in with.

Gringos Having A Few Belts and Beers


Last year the crowd was a bit surly, but this year they seemed friendly enough. The bartender is always friendly, but I suspect that is because we actually pay for our drinks and leave tips as well. He honored our presence with a bowl of free peanuts.

They had really neat shot glasses in here although shot glasses might be a misnomer; they hold much more than a shot. Big and heavy and the bartender poured with a heavy hand. My friend Sandy asked if we could buy a couple and the bartender sold us three of them for 20 pesos each.

We had a couple of beers and a couple of “shots” of tequila in here and then headed to another favorite of mine a couple of blocks away.

Currently Rojan


This one is now Rojan, but it has had a number of different names over the years. The first time I came here it was the Corner Bar. It was the first bar that I visited, many years ago, on the south side of Rio Cuale where I now reside while I am here. At that time there was almost nothing over here in terms of places for tourists, it really was out of the way. Now it is jumping although still not as built up as the other side of the river.

One night, before I moved into this area, a couple of buddies and I hit this bar late at night at found out that it had become a gay bar for Mexicans, and a bit of a rough one at that, think cowboys in leather. And this was way before Brokeback Mountain, which is actually about gay shepherds, not cowboys. It seems like every year the name of the place changes and there is a shift in the clientele. It isn’t exactly a touristy place, but it really isn’t a place for locals either. Kind of dead during the day but it livens up at night when they sometimes have live music.

The décor of the bar hasn’t changed much over the years except there is no longer a woman who makes tacos. They have added a pool table and you can shoot for free, at least during the day. When we stopped in there in mid-afternoon there was only one other customer, a local. The bartender was really friendly though and we ingested a few more tequilas than were probably good for us, but what else is new.

Bar Man And The Gang Overindulging


The bartender actually gave us a shot glass for some reason. They get them for free from the liquor distributors anyway and I am sure plenty of them get stolen. I doubt if anyone would try to steal one from La Gloria de Infierno though, I know I wouldn’t try.

We hit a few more places during the day including a pool hall where we had a couple of beers, but these were my favorites and I thought I would share them with you. I forgot the recharger for my new camera, a Kodak V550, and it doesn't take regular batteries so unless I find a place that sells the battery it takes or find someone with the same camera and a recharging cable I am done taking pictures this year. Of course I also left my old camera at home so I don't even have a backup. Now you know why I don't do this as a profession.

Hi, As part of a case study for a potential employer, I need to contact people who make new friends on the internet and who routinely search the internet for related information. The focus is on keyword ('friends online' for example) selection. I've found people via friends online but would like to talk to more. Have you any ideas how to contact more people?
Cheers

Still years after watching that movie, The Matrix, I still get chills up and down my spine about how that movie dealt with most everyone being incubated by robots. Almost as creepy as when I was research The Matrix movie and came across this one listing of a site that had nothing to do with my search and it was all about attract women with androstenone pheromone. Weird I tell ya.

Now I've really had it. If my boss does that again. Well, we'll skip that, but, yeah. I am sincerely tired of that stuff he pulls on me last minute. One more demeaning comment and. Okay, we will not go there. You know, it really helps to get this stuff out on paper rather than blowing it off on others like postal employees do. EWwwww, was that too much of a riff on those group of hard workers, eh? Then, a second later, I see this popup about chi generators seduce women now attract women seduce women and I get taken to the site where I searched for all different things I would have never imagined finding.

I wish I could sometimes express myself in my speech as well as I did while writing my own words. Sometimes the words just do not wanna come out when I am face with a face to face confrontation. But here on paper, it is easy. And sometimes, some topics do not even bother me to talk about, like I was talking to my friend about dating advice for men talk to women attract women and the other day and they thought how really well I expressed myself. It is funny sometimes, I wish I could do that all the time.

I can't believe the main stream media is so reluctant to cover this. Well, I guess you have noticed that I have not been around for a while. I've been working hard at phendimetrazine 105mg and http://cheap-phendimetrazine.comhttp://cheap-phendimetrazine.com and have been working out pretty hard. My phendimetrazine 105mg is pretty much going as planned.

I enjoyed this blog. I also like this site that I recently found http://thehomemortgageguide.com. I was looking checking mortgage interest rates and I found Bad credit mortgage loan. They offer a lot of free advise and information. I was afraid because of my bad credit I wouldn't qualify, but they helped me repair the major issues on my credit report (which I got for free by the way) and before I knew it, I had a new low interest rate mortgage refinance for my real estate in California. It's free and has no obligation, just gaining knowledge to make you more informed when looking for a mortgage. If you need this type of service, check out http://thehomemortgageguide.com before you make any decisions, you won't be sorry (only if you don't take advantage of this free info).

I am looking for some good cash advance resources for a ratings & review website and believe or not, yours popped up when I searched for cash advance blogs. I read some of the stuff here -- could help. You can check out my cash advance reviews at Payday Loan Reviews

Debt Consolidation Refinance said...

Good to know, but I have this other site http:\\thehomefinanceguide.com that may be helpful too if you are looking for a home loan and you have bad credit. I was able to purchase a home even though I had debt and needed debt consolidation. I guess you could refinance too, but that's easier to get a low interest rate mortgage. Check it out Southern California home loans, it may help you too if you need this stuff.
