August 10 - Up The River

Postby freeeye » Wed Aug 09, 2017 11:33 am

Thursday, August 10, beginning at 6 pm we are hosting another VallartaScene meetup at Mordidas.

Since we are trying out a new bartender we are offering a special drink price for VallartaScene members attending this meetup. Order any fancy martini and it is half price. That's generally 25 pesos for a killer specialty martini. (Regular martinis are also included in this offer, for those of you not so adventurous). We are doing this to put the new bartender, Omar, to the test. Omar was formerly at Michel's Trattoria on Olas Altas. Just mention VallartaScene to Sheyla, our waitress, for this discount.

No purchase is necessary to attend the meetup and everyone is welcome. If you are new to town or just visiting, this is a good way to meet a few of the stranger locals.

At this meetup we offer an optional 99 pesos All-You-Can Eat Meal.

99 Peso All-You-Can-Eat Meal:
- Shit on a Shingle with mashed potatoes or rice and portobello/onion sauce.
- Super Salad Bar
- Veggies
- Dessert (mini banana split with tropical fruit and ice cream)
This meal is all-you-can-eat for as long as the food lasts. No takeouts, sharing or dogie bags, please.

The "Shit on a Shingle" is an old family tradition of mine. It is hamburger in a spicy sauce of portobello mushrooms and onions. Served over country mashed potatoes or jasmine rice.

Drinks are at our normal lower than anywhere else prices: 20 peso Beer (Corona /Pacifico /Victoria /Corona & Pacifico Lite) and 25 peso well drinks. Top shelf booze is also cheaper than anywhere else in town. Margaritas are 35 pesos (made with fresh-squeezed limes and real tequila - no mix). Sangria is 55 pesos, wine is 50/glass or 200/bottle. Cocktails are some of the best in town.

If you haven't been to Cafe Mordida, it fronts the Rio Cuale outside of the normal Vallarta tourist zone on the old cobblestone road to Guadalajara. The colonia, Buenos Aires, is a working class/family neighborhood, much different than anything in the tourist zones. The view from the Mordidas balcony is entertaining.

We are easily accessed by walking, bus, car or taxi. The blue and white Paso Ancho R-04 bus stops virtually at our front door (the last one runs back to town at about 9:30 pm) and we can call a safe taxi for anyone who needs one. Parking is a tad limited but doable. By foot we are an easy 40 minute walk from Los Muertos Beach or Centro (with no hills to climb).

The meetups have a very casual, relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Many locals attend and this is a perfect opportunity for travelers to interact with locals in a non-commercial venue. At this time of year, these meetups are not crowded. Come early for the best seating.

LOCATION

Manantial 375A (upstairs, behind the green gate), Colonia Buenos Aires, East Vallarta.

Can't guarantee that we'll be breaking in a new bartender then but we will definitely be doing something.
Tuna is always good.
