It was a dream destination. It was a competition and a spectacular, star-studded event. But, chiefly, it had a real purpose – which resulted in the generation of $400,000 (USD) NET raised to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  I hope you will have an opportunity to share the attached with your readers.

Sausage Remains Supreme on Southside: The Dog House Opens Up Second Location in Puerto Vallarta

Follow us on: Share this on:

Times like these call for simplicity. These are simply not the days for Beef Wellington and Baked Alaska, forks and knives. Days this hot need something reliably satisfying, something you can eat with one hand, and in a few bites. Something tried and truly delicious. Something that enters your life fully assembled, unlike absolutely anything you will ever buy at Ikea.

Look no further. Your dreams have been answered. The Dog House opened its second southside location this week at Pino Suarez 212, adjacent to the PVRPV offices. The quaint combination dine-in/take-out restaurant is open from 11am to 8pm Tuesday through Sunday. Delivery service is available.

Proprietors, Agustin Rocha and Tim Longpre, start with the best hot dogs and sausages and handle them with reverence. Whether you choose the traditional Jalisco-style hot dog — 100% beef dog wrapped in bacon, griddled until dog and bacon fuse, garnished with a kitchen sink of fresh hand-made condiments and stuffed into a Mexican bolillo roll or their piping hot faves — Italian, Chorizo, Chicken Chipotle, Bratwurst or Polish Sausages — customers will leave with a smile. Customers looking for a veggie dog that has the taste and texture of the real thing won’t be disappointed in The Dog House’s meatless offering.

For more information on The Dog House, visit www.thedoghousepv.com. The original Dog House is located in front of Paco’s Ranch in Ignacio L Vallarta 237 and open nightly at 10pm. Look for The Dog House on Facebook, Foursquare and TripAdvisor.

Charity Bingo #1 for The Food Bank

Follow us on: Share this on:

Written by Judith St. Gaudens author of Lilacs For Carrie

Welcome to another edition of Charity Bingo. We’ve called it everything from Bingo-Lation to Bingo-Rama to Speedy Gonzalez Bingo. It’s all the same game. And, always great fun. More and more wonderful people are turning out to play every other week. This is super and thank you very much for your participation.

I thought I would do something different with this article. Don’t know about you, but it seems to me that they all almost sound the same. Just the names are changed to promote the winners. So, this time, I’ve decided not to write an article at all. That will really be a change. Oscar will simply publish a list of winners. How about that?

NOT. Of course, I’ll write the article. Made ya look though, didn’t it?

I arrived at Nacho Daddy early. Had no choice. I was in charge of the beads. I stopped on Basilio Badillo in front of Nacho Daddy, flashers flashing, popped the hatch and Sean raced out to collect the basket of newly washed beads. Thanks for the assist, Sean. By the way, Gayle from Portland graciously provided the laundry service. I must have been napping so we didn’t get pics of the process. I don’t know how she did it but I do know that she separated a whole bunch of beans from the beads as they floated away in the pool. We’d run out of beads during an especially crowded Bingo event and Nacho Daddy supplemented with beans. Yay, Gayle! Anyway, I powdered the beads before delivery. Yay, me! Hey, we all do what we can, right?

Once parked, I got to the restaurant just in time to meet Gayle and Alex. Alex brought her neat Alaskan Eskimo doggie, Diva. She really is a diva and a very good dog. Then, Ron Biggs strolled in with his little dog, too. I wondered if the night was going to end up going to the dogs.

Our February events will benefit the local food bank—Banco de Alamientos. All of the volunteers, new and old finally arrived. Carole immediately began hawking the 50/50 raffle tickets. She may have started before she even came through the door for all I know. The woman is tireless. Moreover, she won’t take “no” or even “no, thank you” for an answer. Her success is legendary. Rock on, Carole. Robin was back, selling the BIG Raffle tickets. Three prizes were up for grabs—10 passes to Swimming With the Dolphins, valued at $3,000, 2 nights at Casa Isabel, worth $4,000 and 2 valuable clown paintings donated by Margaret Souder. The prize bags, each valued at over $1,500, were donated by dozens of restaurants, service providers and bars throughout Puerto Vallarta. We’ve got some great donors this year. Charlotte and Lori have done a splendid job.

By the way, Banco de Alamientos is a little known charity. However, they’ve been around awhile and they help feed over 5,000 people a month. Food donations will always be cheerfully accepted.

We were entertained by a pair of brand new callers this evening—Astrid van Dam of Superior Tours and another lady assisting. I didn’t catch her name. In any case, Tim introduced them as Laverne and Shirley. Well, being Dutch, they didn’t understand the humor. So, Tim re-introduced them as Thelma and Louise. The ladies were familiar with that pair. Yikes! Any case, Astrid had never called a bingo game before but, boy oh boy, she got down to it and we were off to the races again. Another Speedy Gonzalez night, Astrid style. In English AND in Spanish. Oh, and in Dutch a couple of times. Very amusing, very fun. Kudos, Astrid and thank you for joining us. Hope to see you again.

Let the games begin. Game 1 was won by Gerry White; Game 2 by Bob Turgeon. Game 3 was a double, with Gayle Adcock (my friend from Portland) and Marsha Germaise (remember this name) sharing the honors. Actually, it’s not a share. Each winner receives a whole bag of goodies. Game 4 was another double, with Fay Sloane and Marsha Germaise (remember her?) taking home the baggies.

Break time. Half time. Whatever. Time to replenish beverages and munchies. The Nacho Daddy staff was right on target as usual. I wasn’t feeling my very best so I was drinking mineral water (gasp) instead of cerveza or vino tinto. Hey! That’s okay once in awhile. I promise it won’t happen again. Couldn’t eat either but that didn’t stop the folks at my table and the tables around me. Gosh the food smelled delicious.

Back from the break, Astrid began again. We were going to blast all previous records for early dismissal. Whew! Faster than a speeding bullet. Well, Thelma and Louise, you know. Anyway, Alex Wassermann and Diva won Game 5. Then, Margaret Grimes won Game 6. Then, Karen Danielson and Alex Wassermann won Game 7. I was beginning to wonder if anyone else was playing. I should add that Gayle, Karen and Alex were all sitting at my table. Lucky table, kind of.

Time for the raffle drawings. Okay. Guess who won the 50/50 raffle. If you said Marsha Germaise, you would be correct! $1,950 was the jackpot. I’m not kidding! Three bingo games and a raffle. Talk about luck. The BIG Raffle prizes went to Roger Leclare (Casa Isabel), Vina Vandervelde (paintings) and Gerry White (Swim with the Dolphins package).

Game 8 was won by a total stranger, namely Johanna Westhaver.

Congratulations to all our winners tonight. Well, there weren’t that many now were there. Anyway, 91 generous people played, had a bunch of fun and raised a whopping $11,050 for the food bank. How great is that! Thank you all for coming out and we hope to see you on Tuesday, February 21 at Nacho Daddy. Come early so you can get a good seat.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention as many of our sponsors and volunteers as possible. Tim and Lina of PVRPV, Lori of Rio Amapas-Private Luxury Residences, Charlotte and Carole of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates, and Robert, Bryan and Tammy helping wherever needed.

Don’t forget, folks. Bring food items to the next event and collect your free bingo card. Bring someone we’ve never seen before, collect a free bingo card. See how that works?

Until then, this is me, signing off.

BINGO #2 FOR CANICA – CHILDREN WITH CANCER

Follow us on: Share this on:

Written by Judith St. Gaudens author of Lilacs For Carrie

GALA NIGHT for Charity Bingo! When I arrived at Nacho Daddy, had I not had a reserved table, I’d have been playing bingo on the street! I’m not kidding! It was almost standing room only.

 

The final attendance for the evening was 150 generous, children-loving people playing bingo for Canica—Centro de Apoyo a Ninos con Cancer A.C. or Children with Cancer. What an amazing crowd. Wish list items piled up near the stage. Several children comfortably ensconced at a table near the front, avidly waited for the games to begin.

The usual pre-game activities ensued — Tim on cards, Lori on beads (I feared we might run low on beads), Robin BIG raffling, Carole 50/50 raffling, Lina handling the camera duties (Tim gave Oscar the night off) and Charlotte and Tammy running around doing everything else necessary to get us started. The Nacho Daddy staff was spot on. Food and beverages ordered and delivered with their usual precision.

A special treat for the evening was our guest callers — the always lovely, Pamela Thompson! and, wearing an interesting sxxtkickin’ boot — the marvelous Gary Green! Gary started us off with a BIG BINGO RAH, RAH! That’s not been done before. Then, Pam let us know that there would be no joking around. Just bingo calling. She wanted to be finished with the event by 8:30. Then, it was off to the races … and I mean RACES!

The first winner of the evening was none other than Ross Shaping. Way to go, Ross. Then, Joann Cain shouted “BINGO”, winning Game 2. Wheee! Denise Deramee took Game 3 and Connie Kogut wiped us all out, winning Game 4. Dyn-o-mite! Our beautiful children helped to deliver the heavily laden prize bags to the winners.

Suddenly, it was halftime! The children passed out marbles to all the participants — so we will remember them in the future. I’ll keep mine close to my heart, as are these children and all children with cancer — in my heart and in my prayers. I hope I’m not the only one. The children attending this evening’s festivities introduced themselves to the crowd. I believe the youngest was three. I sort of had to keep doodling so I wouldn’t cry. It was an emotional evening at times. It’s interesting to note that the types of cancers that affect children have a very high cure probability at around 70%. Canica arranges transportation to treatment facilities in Guadalajara for the children. The charity provides other important services as well. By participating in the games this month, we are contributing to the health and welfare of these deserving children.

Raffle ticket sales were brisk during halftime, too. Not only that, I spotted author Karen Blomain at a back table. Karen’s novels, “A Trick of Light” and “Season of Lost Children” are must-reads. I highly recommend them. Thank you for playing, Karen. Hmmmm. Oh, yes. The inimitable Bill Kelly also joined us. I’m certain there were other dignitaries and celebrities in the mob. I just couldn’t see them for all the people.

Additional food and beverages delivered yet again, Pam had us off to the races once more. Bev Shaw snagged Game 5. Nice one, Bev. Kurt Lauer and Debbie Burke bagged Game 6. Whooo, hoooo! Bruce Abrahamson won Game 7. Well done, Bruce.

I think it was at this point in the evening where the raffle tickets were pulled and the winners announced. The largest 50/50 raffle pot in Charity Bingo history – $3,100! – was won by Donna Bellwood. Donna told us the story about her son, a child cancer survivor, who will turn 36 years old this month. She generously donated her winnings back to the cause making the total take for the evening — wait for it — a whopping $25,250! Can you believe it? Well, believe it. The BIG Raffle was won by Llora Weismillek. The fabulous prize was a trip to Guadalajara, including transportation and two nights lodging provided by Superior Tours.

A very special shout-out to Pamela Thompson of HealthCare Resources for her efforts to drive folks to Bingo Night. And, I’m not talking by car, either. Emails, postings on Facebook, Twitter, more emails, more postings. The woman is tireless and I believe her endeavors definitely paid off tonight. Wonderful job, Pam. I don’t know where you find the energy but I know the children are grateful as is the rest of the community

We finished up the night with the always-challenging Blackout Bingo. I love this one. It was won by Richard Law and Donna Bellwood! Yippeee!

Congratulations to all our winners! Kudos to the 150 people who made the event a huge success for the children. Thanks as usual to our energetic sponsors – Tim and Lina of PVRPV, Charlotte and Carole of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates and Lori of Rio Amapas-Private Luxury Residences. Without your hard work, Charity Bingo would not happen. And, what a wonderful list of contributors again for this event. Those prize bags are loaded! Many thanks to all.

By the way, the Bingo event was a done deal by 8:20! A Bingo Marathon! Whew!

Okay, kids. Let’s not forget that we play Bingo once more for this very worthy cause on Tuesday, January 24 at 6:30. Can anyone remember where? Oh, yes. Nacho Daddy! Until then, this is me, signing off.

ANOTHER EDITION OF BINGOLATION!

Follow us on: Share this on:

Written by Judith St. Gaudens author of Lilacs For Carrie

Once again, a bunch of us got together at Nacho Daddy to play Bingo to benefit Discapacitados Visuales de la Bahia—Help to Blind People. Gosh, folks. Isn’t the weather fabulous? I arrived early after spending a splendid afternoon on the beach. I recommend it.

After finding my preferred table, I discovered that I had forgotten paper for notes. Had a pen, just no paper. And, Nacho Daddy recently laminated the special Bingo menus. What to do? Napkins just don’t work for note taking. Tammy to the rescue. Thanks Tammy for providing some really nice paper. Tammy told me that she really loves paper. Who knew? By the way, she loves tires, too. She recently had a birthday. I wonder which she got … paper or tires.

Showing up at the venue early gave me the opportunity to watch the all the avid, excited Bingo players find their favorite tables and place orders for their favorite food and drink with the A-1, top drawer Nacho Daddy Staff.

Carole, our nifty 50/50 raffle chica, was all decked out in a fur trimmed Santa hat. The white fur pom-pom bounced atop her head on a red springy thingy. Words fail me from time to time. Like now. Certainly a festive hat.

The room slowly filled. Carole peddled her tickets; Tim sold the cards (I’d like a lucky one, please). The beautiful Lori was in the house doing whatever else was required to get ready for the games. Lina, Tim’s lovely sister, worked the room selling BIG Raffle tickets for an unidentified but gigantic gift basket. The 411 will follow, I promise. As soon as I learned that chocolate was involved, (Charlotte was spotted bringing in the basket) I purchased three tickets. One stop shopping for Christmas gifts was my thinking.

Oh, by the way, Charlotte had a Santa hat identical to Carole’s. Thought I was seeing double. Ka-boing, ka-boing.

Stuff from the wish-list was piling up on the stage. Good news for our cause, to be sure, but, the room was only half-full. We couldn’t wait any longer. Our now regular guest caller, Sean Moore, was ready to Bingo. Check one, check two, check, check. N-45 started us off, in English and espanol. Sean’s espanol just gets better each time we play.

Gosh the restaurant was dark tonight. But, no holiday decorations. Awwww, shucks.

Happened to notice a beautiful young couple dressed in traditional clothing strolling through the restaurant. How lovely they were. I hoped they would dance during halftime, whenever that happened. One never knows anymore. The lovely couple was our prize delivery system for the evening.

Game 1 was won by Ron Springer, Marlene Rosenberg won Game 2. Whooo hoooo! Carol Clarke walked away with the prize bag for Game 3 and Judy Raad (a winner from our last event) won Game 4.

Tim called halftime after the (gasp) fourth game. Once again, we were treated to spectacular entertainment provided by members of Discapacitados Visuales de la Bahia. First, dancing by the young couple: Luis Enrique Mendez, who is the nephew of the charity founder, Rebeca and his partner Erendira Meza. They danced to La Negra and Guadalajara. What talent! Then, we were treated to a musical serenade by Edgar Gil on guitar and Antonio Morales on accordion. They played and sang Cielito Lindo and Caminos de Guanajuato. The charity has hugely participated in the events. It has not only been entertaining but gratifying as well. No blindfolds this week—just beautiful music. Many thanks to all the entertainers. Help for the Blind is truly a worthy cause.

Something nice happened during halftime … more folks started showing up. Can’t stay away. The festive music drew them in. Welcome newbies. Hope you played with us.

No matter where I turned, there were bobbing pom-poms. Ka-boing, ka-boing. Love those hats.

The first bingo of Game 5 was not a good bingo. Instead of a right-side up “T”, the player made an upside-down “T”. Ohhhhhh! Jan Saridakis (she was at my table) and Barbara Sandino were the eventual winners. Game 6 was won by Janet Seigneuret. Wheeeee!

The raffle girls were ready to raffle after Game 7, which was won by Joann Cain and Dennis Smith. Mr. Smith was at my table. Anyway, the 50/50 ticket was drawn and $900 was won by Margaret Souder! She generously donated her winnings back to the charity. What a wonderful gesture, Margaret. Thank you. The BIG Raffle was won by our own Lori Lorenzen! Lots of chocolate compliments of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates and a gift certificate from for $1,000 US off interior design services! WOW!

Before we could get underway again with blackout bingo, we had our traditional bead spill near the stage. OH,NO! As usual, it was handled quickly and quietly. I love Bingo, don’t you?

A couple of street bingos during the final game. No one paid any attention because we were only a few numbers into the game. Anyway, we’re used to it. Game 8 was won by Dennis Schram. He won the same game the last time we played! What are the odds of that happening? Wow!

Congratulations to all the winners. You guys rock!

In spite of the holidays, we did well. 48 people came out and we collected a total of $7,190 for the evening. Thank you all for coming.

A big round of applause for all of our volunteers, especially Tim of PVRPV, Lina of PVRPV, Lori of Rio Amapas-Private Luxury Residences, Carole and Charlotte of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates. Without you, Charity Bingo would not be a reality. I would be remiss if I didn’t extend warm thanks to Sean and the Nacho Daddy staff. And to all the prize donators, we’re very grateful for your participation.

Our next Bingo event will be held at Nacho Daddy at 6:30 on Tuesday, January 10, 2012. It will benefit Canica—Ninos con Cancer (Children with Cancer). Please join us and help to raise funds for another worthy cause. Watch for the wish list. Signing off until then.

Happy Holidays to all!!

Charity Bingo #1 for Discapacitados Visuales de la Bahia

Follow us on: Share this on:

Written by Judith St. Gaudens author of Lilacs For Carrie

Well, folks. To begin with, I gotta say that our first Charity Bingo event benefiting Discapacitados Visuales de la Bahia – Help to Blind People, was amazing. We had a wonderful turn-out … 84 people braved the downtown traffic jams, detours and hard to find parking. Thank you all for coming. You helped to make the evening a roaring success. And, what an interesting evening it was…am I right?


Let’s get to it. Sean Moore of Nacho Daddy, our beloved guest caller, coined a new word for us. How’s this … ”BINGOLATION”. Love it!

The evening started out almost like any other. We ate, we drank, and we greeted friends, old and new. Tim, Carole and Robin worked the room selling Bingo cards (necessary items if one really wants to get into the game), 50/50 and BIG Raffle tickets. Several representatives from our charity arrived and sat in the front of the restaurant. It was great to have them participate. Some were visually impaired, some not. Two beautiful young women dressed in colorful, traditional garb accompanied them.

Then, Sean ramped it up. Bingolation! He started calling the letters and numbers. Game 1 was won by Rosalie Elliot. The beautiful women delivered the gift bag and posed for a picture with the lucky winner. Game 2 was won by Rhonda Angelo. Same prize delivery system. How nice is that? The famous and fabulous Bill Kelly won Game 3 and Michelle Mayer won Game 4.

Now, ordinarily, we have halftime after Game 4, cause we’re halfway through. See how that works? This was the second time that Sean decided to have halftime after Game 5, which by the way was won by our own Dennis Smith. Dennis is a lucky guy. We’d had a fake Bingo during Game 5. Like the automaton I am, I cleared one card. No way to recover. Really, I must pay better attention.

It’s halftime. A hush did not come over the crowd … not yet. We ordered more drinks and food, bought a few more raffle tickets, talked, laughed. I complained about the unlucky cards I’d drawn. Oh, well.

Now, a hush came over the crowd as a lovely young lady, Graciela Ruiz, began to play her keyboard for us. She played Cielito Lindo and Fur Elise. Graciela is extremely talented and her audience was enthralled. Then, Tim and several helpers distributed blindfolds to each of us. The idea was for us to experience how the visually impaired feel and hear the world around them. Once our blindfolds were in place, two more musicians took the stage … Edgar Gil on guitar who sang Los Laureles and El Sinaloense accompanied by Antonio Morales playing the accordion.

Listening to the beautiful music in the dark without distractions was an amazing experience, at least for me. Tim mentioned to me later that he was surprised at how many people were unable to keep their blindfolds in place throughout the performance. I can understand that some might feel just a little uncomfortable, perhaps even claustrophobic. Muchas gracias to all of the musicians and participants from Discapacitados Visuales de la Bahia. I believe that many of us learned a valuable lesson from this demonstration.

Once again … BINGOLATION. Game 6 was under way. Several numbers into the game, the street in front of Nacho Daddy erupted into an Aztec dance routine. Drums, rattles, conch … no less than eight plumbed dancers twirled and galloped up Basilio Badillo, leading a more traditional posada musical group, followed by families processing their way to Cathedral de Guadalupe. I’m thinking Sean didn’t hear the commotion, but many of us were so engrossed in watching the parade, we missed a whole bunch of numbers. Finally, Sean stopped calling, the parade passed by and we began Game 6 anew. Sean kindly summarized the numbers that had already been called. Jim Raad was the lucky winner of the game.

On to Game 7, then, which had three winners: Kerry Leathers, John McKwen, and Judy Raad. Hmmm do you think Judy is related to Jim?

It was time to announce the winners of the 50/50 raffle and the BIG Raffle, namely Patti Rock who won $1,825 and generously donated it back to the cause and Tik Thurston, who was the proud winner of the BIG Raffle Action Package including a boat trip from Pegaso Tours, a one night stay at Casa Isabele, a canopy tour compliments of, ta daa, Canopy Tours and … and (2) Cheeky Monkey T-Shirts! What an amazing prize.

Game 8, the big ol’ blackout bingo was won by none other than Dennis Schran.

Congratulations to all our winners!

An interesting coincidence … the total collected for the evening – $12,700 is the same amount collected the previous game, including the 50/50 raffle amount. Very interesting. Very interesting, indeed.

Signing off until then.

The ingredients are of the highest quality and are absolutely terrific. If you love your french rolls imbued with the memory-inducing, arousing aroma of fresh bread just out of the oven, this is the for you and now delivered nightly to The Dog House. Panaderia Alondra proprietor’s have made this panaderia a Puerto Vallarta institution for almost three decades and in the process, have become part of the Southside fabric. “We are passionate about our product and look forward to a long partnership with The Dog House” enthusiastically noted the bakery staff.

The Dog House, located in front of Paco’s Ranch on Ignacio L Vallarta, offers customers a variety of artisan sausage meats as well as traditional bacon-wrapped all-beef hot dogs.

Charity Bingo #2 for Casa Hogar Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco

Follow us on: Share this on:

Written by Judith St. Gaudens author of Lilacs For Carrie

Charity Bingo Night  for Casa Hogar

Most of the tables were full of eager Bingo players and once we were fed and beveraged by the able staff of Nacho Daddy, we were indeed ready to get started. The still unsticky beads were distributed by Lori, Tim was selling cards, you know, of the Bingo variety, and Robin and Carole were selling Big Raffle and 50/50 raffle tickets. Oscar was back and taking pictures. Glad to see you doing better, Oscar.

It looked like a pretty good crowd. There were several visitors from Portland, Oregon this evening. It’s c-o-o-o-l-d in Oregon. Many familiar faces and many new faces as well. I expect we will be seeing new faces all the way into the season. Good. That way, we can make new friends.

The main event of the evening began practically the same way as the last time we played. Our dandy guest caller was, once again, Sean Moore of Nacho Daddy. And we were ready to BINGO-O-O-O-o-o-o, paying strict attention to the letters and numbers called



.

Game #1 was won quickly but it was a fake bingo. The player thought B-13 had been called. It hadn’t been. However, it soon was called and the same person, Jessie Gedary, was the winner. Yaaay! We moved on to Game #2 and three winners shouted out with enthusiasm…”BINGO!!”. Tim was busy confirming that all bingos were good bingos. The winners, Rob Morris, Jay Mortensen and Peg Egan, were thrilled with their prizes. Jay was seated at the Portland table. Game #3 was a quiet fake bingo, then a fake-out bingo because it was a good bingo after all. Silly people. Roger Mallett was the lucky winner. Game #4, took forever. I don’t know why, but it was finally won by Ross Shapiro.

Half time gave me the opportunity to check out who was in attendance. Gil Gevins and his wife Lucy, attending for the first time, were at a table behind me. Gil was named “Jalisco’s Funniest Human Being” a while back. He has written several books, “Refried Brains” among them. All are available on Amazon.com. Let’s see…Lary and his daughter, Nicole, were playing nearby. Bill Kelly was playing, too. A female impersonator/lip-sinker by the name of Dixie, another newbie, was at a table behind me. Quite a star studded night.

Halftime also gave everyone the opportunity to unfuel and refuel and purchase more raffle tickets. Sales were brisk for both raffles. Then, we were off to the Bingo Races again.

Game #5 was won by Ross Shapiro, our double-dipper of the evening. He was quick to point out that a different card won. Lucky guy. Lucky cards. Then, we had a bead spill on aisle one. Oh, no! Tim was on it immediately but, apparently the spill was quite serious as it spread to aisle two. Don’t lose any beads, guys!

Game #6 was won by a street person. Well, not really. Juliana Montagano  actually won the game. I love it when people holler “Bingo!” when they pass by the restaurant. We all sit up and take notice. I was within one of winning…B-1 to be precise. Bingo is a game of chance, you know. Chances are you don’t have the number. That’s been my experience this season.

At last, it was time for the raffle drawings. Roger Mallett (the winner of Game #3) won the 50/50 raffle. When you’re hot, you’re hot. The prize came to a total of $1,825! Roger generously donated his winnings to Casa Hogar. What a lovely gesture. Thank you Roger. Mary Jacobs won the Big Raffle…the basket included a one night stay at Casa Isabel and two beautiful still-life paintings donated by the artist, Alex Sanchez. Congratulations, Mary!

Once all the photographs were taken, we began Game #7, which was won by Jeff Bemge who was sitting at the same table as Jessie Gedary, the winner of Game #1. Lucky table.

Just before Game #8 (black-out) began, I thought I heard rain. Nope. Just the sizzle of the famous Nacho Daddy fajitas cooking in the hot juices. Mmmmm. My mouth began to water. No way did it smell like rain.

Quite a ways into Game #8, my pen rolled across one of my cards pushing the beads to one side. Awwwww. No way to recover from a roll-over accident like that. Shoot! We had another accident near the front of the restaurant. I don’t know if beads and cards were involved or just drinks. Either way, bummer. It was an accident prone evening.

After a surprisingly short game, Adam Manthei was declared the winner.

Charity Bingo #1 for Casa Hogar – Puerto Vallarta

Follow us on: Share this on:

Written by Judith St. Gaudens author of Lilacs For Carrie

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!
