LET’S GET READY TO BINGO-O-O-O-O-o-o-o-o-o

That’s how guest caller, Sean Moore of Nacho Daddy, started Charity Bingo for Casa Hogar, the local children’s orphanage, once the crowd had settled in. Sean called in English and Spanish, much to everyone’s delight. It took a while for him to get the hang of the Spanish, but I shouldn’t make fun. My Spanish is horrible. Anyway, Sean began to sound more and more like a wrestling match announcer as the evening progressed. It didn’t matter as everyone loved him. Thank you, Sean.

I gotta tell ya, our wonderful sponsors are doing an awesome job of gift procurement; the prize bags are chock full of fabulous certificates for discounted meals, merchandise and services. The list of contributors grows with each event. It’s almost too long to include here, but, how wonderful to have so much interest in Charity Bingo generated in the community. A big round of applause for Charlotte and Carole, the sweet ladies of Xocodiva, Artisan Chocolates, Lori of Rio Amapas-Private Luxury Residences, and, of course, Tim from PVRPV for their efforts. Take a bow, people. Oh, and a shout out to Oscar who is suffering from knee issues. Get well soon, Oscar. You were missed. Many thanks to Lina for selling cards and snapping pics of the evening, to Robin and Carole for volunteering to sell the raffle tickets and to Tammy of Nacho Daddy for running around and making certain that everything was going smoothly.

It should be mentioned that we were playing with clean beads this week. Yours truly carted them home after our last event. I left them in the mesh basket, plunked the whole thing into the pool, swooshed the beads around (call it the spin cycle), let them soak for a few minutes (the soak cycle), then pulled them out to drain. Once most of the water was gone, with the help of my friend Gayle, the beads were placed on a nice fluffy towel to complete the drain cycle. We patted them dry and let them sit outside to dry completely before returning them to the container. Just before leaving home, I personally shook Johnson’s Baby Powder all over them puppies (the powder cycle). What a difference. I propose we do this at the end of each month. Our beads smelled as fresh as a newly powdered baby’s behind. We’ll take pictures of the process next time.

On with the games! Jack Stone was a double-dipper this week winning Game 1 and Game 6. Game 2 was won by Nicole Wallace, the Bingo Queen. Game 3 went to Keith Smith. Keith was very quiet about his win and it might have gone unnoticed except for the person near him who pointed it out. We have some shy players. Game 4 was won by Bernice Rone. Jeff Moumce took care of Game 5. Games 7 and 8 were won by Roger Mallet and Tim Upton respectively. Congratulations to all our winners! By the way, not one fake bingo this week. Practice, practice, practice. That’s what I always say. Well, not really.

I noticed during the evening that a couple playing near the front of Nacho Daddy was playing by flashlight. Rather romantic don’t you think? It’s getting dark earlier now. Break out the candles!

Mr. Sean made the decision to take the halftime break after Game 5. Game 5 – The Big T – took forever. It just went on and on and on. We needed a break at that point. Hmmm. I wonder how he knew. Anyway, the not so halftime conversations seemed to be about beads…someone should invent a bead dispenser was one suggestion. We tried a fork but that didn’t work so good. Someone else wondered if one could get carpal tunnel from Bingo. Maybe using a dauber but not with beads. We like our beads but we are not bead obsessed. Honest. Oh, I noticed that one of my tablemates designed a line of Bingo wear. Bernd had cards and beads stuck to his head. What is up with that? Can’t be boredom. Our Bingo games are anything but boring.

Before we continued, the lovely lady from Casa Hogar spoke to the 74 kind people in attendance. She explained that the orphanage is home to 65 children and that they are so honored to have been selected as one of Charity Bingo’s special causes this season. By the way, the wish list has been published on Facebook on the Bingo Event page. Please check it out. Our special group’s generosity raised $10,775!

Someone won the 50/50 raffle. $1,475 went to the lucky winner. Someone always wins the 50/50 raffle. I didn’t catch the name this time. So sorry. The Big Raffle was won by Pam Thompson. I wish I’d found out what was in the basket. I think I heard something about a bottle of tequila. Anyway, a big Woo Hoo! to both winners.

By the way, Pam’s handsome date for the evening was her grandson, Nicholas. He had a great time. Heather Wilson was also in the house. Thanks for coming by and playing with us.  What a wonderful venue to see old friends and meet and make new ones from all over the world. It’s a splendid way to spend an evening. I had the pleasure of meeting Damian and Bernd who are visiting from Vancouver. Hope to see them again soon.

As usual, the amazing Nacho Daddy staff was spot on. Beverages just miraculously appeared along with delicious chips, salsa and guacamole. And, the award winning chili was spicy, just the way some folks like it. Me, not so much. Tender tummy.

CHARITY BINGO # 2 FOR ASILO SAN JUAN DIEGO PUERTO VALLARTA

Follow us on: Share this on:

Written by Judith St. Gaudens author of Lilacs For Carrie

Anticipation was running high when I arrived at Nacho Daddy to participate in the second and final Bingo game benefiting Asilo San Juan Diego, Puerto Vallarta’s home for seniors. Once again, the restaurant was filled with eager faces. Once again, many were unfamiliar to me but that’s a good thing. The word is out. The exceptional Nacho Daddy wait staff was serving drinks and food with alacrity. I and my guest took a seat at Tom’s table.

It was a treat to learn that Juan Carlos would be calling Bingo, assisted by the lovely Lina of PVRPV. Carole, our capable 50/50 raffle chica was working the room, but she wasn’t as exuberant as usual. No matter, everyone bought tickets. San Juan is such a worthy cause and everyone involved was determined to raise as much money as possible.

A gentleman from New Zealand carried in the cutest little dog. He was hoping to adopt the poor thing out as he was unable to return to New Zealand with an animal. I don’t know if our friend was successful. I hope so. Another dog was present in the room, though I doubt the owner would have given this beautiful Samoyed up for all the tortillas in Mexico. What an amazingly well trained animal. The brightest white fur and the sweetest face I’ve ever seen on a Samoyed. What a treat. Yes, folks. One can bring one’s well-behaved dog into many restaurants in Mexico.

Enough about dogs. Last week I promised to tell you the history of Bingo. I went to Wikipedia for the information. It’s pretty boring so I’m not going to expound on it much except to say Bingo is usually played as a gambling game or as a way to raise funds for worthy causes, churches, etc … just like we’re doing … and has been around, in the US, at least, since 1920. It actually originated as a lottery game in Italy around 1530. So, that’s kind of interesting but I think it’s the players who make our games exciting. There are very serious Bingo players out there, some playing as many as 30 cards at a time! This usually occurs in Casino Bingo where the players use daubers, not beads. Anyway, I’m never bored at our Bingo nights and I like using beads. Oh my gosh! Can you imagine using beads on 30 cards? One bump of the table and …

Robin was selling the Big Raffle tickets. What an exciting gift this time. A “Romance Basket.” Oooo, lah, lah. My whole table bought tickets…the basket contained a bottle of fine champagne and two flutes compliments of Trattoria Michel, a gift certificate for a visit for two to Metamorfosis Day Spa, delicious chocolates compliments of  Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates and a gift of 2 dozen roses from Eden Flores. Many thanks to those businesses who donated their products to this beautiful prize package.

Well, after purchasing our cards, 50/50 raffle tickets, Big Raffle tickets, food and beverages we were ready to get underway. When Juan Carlos had the group’s attention (90 in number!), he called the first letter/number…N-41. Suddenly, a parade started up the street. Music, noise-makers, marchers all in bright pink shirts. The march was to bring awareness to breast cancer. The small group only took around 60 seconds to get past us and we were able to continue. The first game was won by a rather shy person…Laarle Spiess, who raised his hand to signify his bingo. Tim almost missed it. Liz Miller won game 2 and shared the win of game 3 with Lili Velazquez. Game 4 was won by Larry Wright. Once underway, the first half went very quickly. Before we knew it, it was half-time. We all know the drill: more food and drink orders, the other break, the stretch and walk outside to check out the sunset, final raffle ticket purchases.

We began anew with game 5, won by Toby Morris. Game 6 was won by a professional Bingo player … Cheryl Sellers brought her own buttons to use as markers. That raised the discussion about our colorful beads. Over the months, they’ve gotten sticky. Yours truly volunteered to take them home and give them a good bath. I’ll probably just stick them in the pool and swoosh them around a bit. One of my table mates suggested that I grind them into squares so they won’t roll. I had another suggestion for him. Anyway, the beads are currently in my possession. Don’t worry. They’ll be back for our first game on November 8th.

The 50/50 raffle jackpot came in at $3,900 pesos with $1,950 going to Wendy Feldman, the holder of the winning ticket. Congratulations Wendy! Thank you for making the trip from Xtapa to join us. Dennis Smith was the lucky winner of the Big Raffle “Romance Basket”, valued at $4,500 pesos. Congratulations to you, Dennis! Enjoy.

Game 7 was won by Pierre Paquette and game 8, Blackout, was won by Drew Baldridge.

Congratulations to all our game winners and thank you for coming out and helping to make the event a success. Your generosity helped to raise a whopping $11,240 pesos, bringing the combined total to $22,287 for Asilo San Juan Diego. Give yourselves a big round of applause!

Old Town Farmer’s Market – Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco

PRESS RELEASE

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco

Old Town Farmer’s Market has a New Home

By Kathleen Harris

On Saturday October 8th the Old Town Farmer’s Market–Tianguis Cultural began a new and exciting relationship with El Jardin de Ninos Emiliano Zapata.  The school, located on the west side of Pino Suarez between V. Carranza and B. Badillio, will be part of the Market’s new home when it opens in November 5th!

When Market founder, Charlotte Semple, learned recently that the school might have to stay closed due to the theft of all its’ copper water pipes, her immediate reaction was, “We can’t let that happen!”  Within a matter of days the Market had purchased new pipes, they were installed, and it was back to business for the 176 students who attend kindergarten there. Morning principal, Olga Elvira Quintero, said that she and afternoon principal, Maria Concepcion Banuelos-Macias, could not be happier.

On Saturday volunteers, including Fast Eddie from Casa Isabel, Mark Rome from the Palm, Brenda de Retzlaff, Sylvie Scopazzo, Robin Spencer, Jae Palsce and Pamela Beltran, showed up to assist with the building of a new bodega to protect the schools treasured supplies.  Previously supplies were stored in a classroom that was then rendered un-usable for other purposes.

The Market has hired a professional bricklayer, and architect Roberto Alvaro-Llamas is donating his expertise to ensure that the bodega is well built. When it is finished, the school would like to turn the old storage area into a library.

Everyone was very enthusiastic on Saturday, fueled by coffee and yummy muffins donated by Dee’s Coffee.  Refreshments brought later, compliments of Apache’s Martini Bar were so appreciated after a hard, hot day moving bricks and breaking concrete.

Additional projects to aid the school were quickly identified.  In the coming weeks and months Market volunteers will clean and re-paint walls and fixtures, repair and paint the school yard pool and outside walls, collect books for the new library and musical instruments for a proposed music room, and gather general school supplies for the students.

There are also plans to collaborate on building a raised-bed garden to teach the children about gardening, nutrition, and entrepreneurship, as Charlotte envisions the children selling their produce at the market.  Won’t that be a popular booth!

Located in the heart of Emiliano Zapata, also known as the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta, the Old Town Farmers Market- Tianguis Cultural is about to open its 3rd season of providing local fresh farm produce, artisan foods, handmade crafts, jewelry, clothing, and inspiring services and community education to locals and tourists from the entire Bay of Banderas Region.

So keep your eye out for more news coming soon and the opening of the Old Town Farmers Market- Tianguis Cultural on November 5th.  The Market will be located in the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta on calle Pino Suarez between V. Carranza and B. Badillo and inside the kindergarten school El Jardin de Ninos Emiliano Zapata.  Market hours are every Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm.  For more information visit the Market website at http://www.oldtownfm.com, or its Facebook page: Old Town Farmer’s Market Puerto Vallarta.

CHARITY BINGO PUERTO VALLARTA – LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Follow us on: Share this on:

Written by Judith St. Gaudens author of Lilacs For Carrie

What a great night for BINGO! New faces, familiar faces, the Nacho Daddy staff on their toes and as friendly as ever, Hurricane Jova looming off the coast and the potential for losing the electricity. I mean, does it get any more exciting than this?

The evening was a good start to benefit our October charity…Asilo San Juan Diego…the local senior citizens home. Many generous people not only purchased Bingo cards (well one rather needs them to play) but 50/50 raffle tickets and BIG raffle tickets, too. Food and drink were plentiful as usual. Nacho Daddy offered their regular menu as well as their specially priced Bingo menu. Something new was added especially for this evening…2 X 1 HURRICANES! Go figure.

Hurricane is a deliciously sweet drink made from fruit juice, sometimes grenadine (which is made from pomegranates) and rum. Yum. Sort of a health beverage, if it includes grenadine. The drink was made popular in New Orleans back in the 1940’s by tavern owner Pat O’Brien. Apparently, rum was not all that popular back in the day and Pat was waiting on a shipment of the preferred whiskey and scotch. But, all he had was cheap rum. So, he invented the concoction to use it up. The sweetness disguised its unpleasant taste. Of course, there are other Hurricane stories out there. Apparently, the drink in the Bahamas is made with coffee. Next time, I’ll tell you the history of Bingo. No. Just kidding. Well, maybe not.

We got started a little late but that gave folks the opportunity to get to Nacho Daddy (street parking was not a problem), and it gave the raffle ticket sellers (our own Carole…the 50/50 chica, and the handsome, fast talking Miguel selling the BIG raffle tickets) the opportunity to work the room.

Finally, we were underway. Kind of. First, Tim introduced the evening’s sponsors…Lori of Rio Amapas Private Luxury Residences, Charlotte and Carole of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates and Tim of PVRPV all volunteer their time as the administrative committee of Charity Bingo. Also, thanking all the volunteers, Robin, Miguel, Lina and Oscar. They coordinated with Asilo San Juan Diego to make the evening a success. Many thanks and a big round of applause to all of our volunteers.

I’ve said it before; playing Bingo is like riding a bicycle.  With Oscar as the caller (no assistant tonight), the first letter/number was called…O 61. And we were off and Bingo-ing. Some people were playing four cards as they’d brought an item from the San Juan Wish List. For the most part, the list includes the normal necessities…toilet paper, rice, cooking oil, tuna in water, baby wipes, bath soap, etc…all things useful for operating a home for our seniors. Actually, the list is quite extensive.

The first game was won by Maggie Harbour. Go, Maggie! The winner of our first game of the season. Once into the second game, some of us thought that the rain had finally started. Nope. False alarm. It was the sizzle of a fajita platter cooking at a nearby table. Spooky. Sounded just like rain. Back to Bingo. Game #2 had two winners…Tom Atkachunas and Randy Haessig. Way to go, guys. During Game #3, we had our first fake Bingo as we like to call them. Eventually, we had a good one. The winner was Estela Garcia. Well done, Estela. Then, on to Game #4, won by Valentin Moreno. Bravo, Valentin.

Break time! Some of us ordered more drinks, others relieved themselves of previously consumed beverages while still others took their cameras and phones outside to photograph the stunningly beautiful sunset. Yes. You read it correctly. A sunset in the middle of a hurricane. Imagine that!

Then, we were back with Game #5 which was won by Robert Mahoney. Nicely played, sir. Our own Captain Doug Danielson eked out a win in Game #6. I was glad because he had been so close so many other times.

Right about then, Tim had the 50/50 raffle drawing. 1/2 of a kitty of $2,894 pesos was up for grabs. Tammy pulled the ticket, and the winner? … Julie Guerrero from No Way Jose! The restaurant was closed because of the pending storm so she decided to join us for Bingo and we’re so glad she did. Julie won $1,447 pesos and donated it back to San Juan! A very generous gesture, Julie. Thank you so much. That extra money combined with card sales and BIG raffle ticket sales brought the evenings total to $11,047 pesos! Imagine what we could have raised with more than 52 people in attendance. Next time, folks. I’m not kidding. There won’t be a hurricane or any excuse not to come out for Bingo on October 25. That’s a Tuesday, by the way. Oh, and the BIG raffle…a one night’s stay at the beautiful Casa Isabelle, dinner for two at Daiquiri Dick’s and a dandy bottle of sipping tequila…was won by Divina Angélica Andrade from Casa Hogar! Interestingly enough, we will be benefiting Casa Hogar during the November Bingo games. Casa Hogar is our local children’s home or orphanage. Thank you for coming out to benefit Asilo San Juan Diego. So, as you can see, the prizes are fabulous, and the fun just keeps on coming.

The gang at my table dubbed the 7th Bingo game “The Hurricane” because in order to win, one must cover all the outside spaces…a square or a circle if you will. The name didn’t catch on. Oh, well. The winner was Michael Gutierrez. Black-out bingo, the 8th and final game, was won by a person at a very fun loving table. Oh, they were having an exciting time. The winner was Tiffany Stevenson.

Congratulations to all our winners and to all the players. You people rock! And so do our bighearted sponsors:

Congratulations to all our winners and to all the players. You people rock! And so do our bighearted sponsors:

Your generosity in donating certificates and other prizes is greatly appreciated and helped to make our first Bingo night a success. All of the winners will certainly enjoy their prizes.

Remember…we will play again on October 25, to benefit Asilo San Juan Diego, the local senior citizens home. This is a very worthy cause and very important to the community. I would like to encourage everyone to join us at Nacho Daddy. We really have a wonderful time and it will be super to see a larger crowd next time.

Donations from the wish list can be dropped off during the week at PVRPV Pino Suarez #210 in Zona Romantica. Or, better yet, bring them to the next game and get an extra card!
