Victoria beer that is…
Victoria beer was one of my favorite beers to drink in Mexico. It went especially well with an icy michelada. And until 2013, it wasn’t available in the states. So I’m excited that I can drink it in Chicago now too. As we wait for the new The Most Interesting Man in the World to get another commercial, I thought this would be a good time to introduce you to Victoria beer.
This commercial is called No manches guey which is a slightly vulgar Mexican expression that roughly translates to “Don’t yank my chain”. In this lovely Victoria beer commercial, three friends don’t believe that their one friend is truly Mexican.
They accuse him of being from Wisconsin and that his last name is Smith. The accused friend counters that he loves eating everything picante (hot and spicy). He also says he loves to dance the Ranchera, a traditional Mexican dance, and is a good fútbol (soccer) goalie.
His friends nod their head in agreement, but it’s not until they see him sit back holding his Victoria beer that they proclaim him a true Mexican.!! Love it.!! Have a great weekend everyone.!! Enjoy.! Y salud.! 🙂

As promised, here is the Dos Equis commercial introducing the new The Most Interesting Man in the World. I’m still not sold on him 100%. I know, I know, sometimes it’s hard to let go of the past. And sometimes, the new just sucks.
Dear bloggers, I would like to know your thoughts on the rebound guy. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂 In the meantime, enjoy your weekend.!! Cheers.! Y salud.!

Saying goodbye is never easy and especially to The Most Interesting Man in the World.!!! And while the world said goodbye to him back in September, I’ve been avoiding the whole goodbye scene. I somehow felt that if I didn’t post it here it wasn’t real. But alas, it is all too real. Dos Equis already replaced The Most Interesting Man in the World with another.!?!? Is nothing sacred.?!?! I guess not. hmph…
So the time has come for me (and you fellow bloggers and dear readers) to say “adios amigo” to the man who entertained us with such charm and derring do. Next week, I’ll introduce us to the rebound guy for The Most Interesting Man in the World. I’m not sold on him yet. Excuse me while I go find a kleenex, I have something in my eye 😦 In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy.! Y salud.!!

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a new Tecate commercial. So in the spirit of surviving this political season and celebrating the weekend – here’s a new Tecate ad.!! Enjoy.!! Y salud 🙂

A cubeta or a bucket of Coronas is a most wondrous refresher on a hot, sunny, tropical day.!!! Of course, it could also be a cubeta of Tecate, Dos Equis, Modelo, Victoria, or Pacifico.! You get the idea 🙂 Enjoy your weekend everyone.!!

Did you know that until fairly recently, this lighthouse where 10th avenue meets the beach was the tallest structure in Playa del Carmen? There was a law that prohibited any building from being taller than the height of el faro or more than 3 floors.! Of course, there were a few buildings that got away with that limitation by agreeing with the law in principle, but in reality they would increase the building by just a little during construction or count the ground floor as zero.!! jajaja…
I’ve heard that the law has been updated to allow for an extra floor now. So instead of only three floors, buildings can now have four like the newly built Hotel Cacao at http://hotelcacao.com.mx/. I don’t believe Playa will turn into Cancun anytime soon, so no need to worry about skyscrapers.
El faro is in a great location next to Zenzi Beach Club and the appropriately named Residences El Faro . Not only is el faro beautiful, but I’ve also heard it has a romantic spirit. Many lovers have met at the top of the lighthouse for a passionate rendezvous.! Ah amor….
I have to admit…I have missed the Most Interesting Man in the World.!! And I promised everyone back in the day after we had run through all of his commercials that I would bring him back whenever possible. So he’s back for Halloween.! Strangely enough though, it’s only a radio advert, but it was so FUNNY and SO the Most Interesting Man in the World that I had to post it.!
Some of my personal favorites from the commercial – “Spirits will haunt a house just to meet him.” And, “Werewolves bring his picture to the barber.” jajajajajaja… I hope your Halloween weekend was wonderful.!! Enjoy.! Y salud.!!
