Restaurant and Food News

Movie Night at Buena Vida Tuesday - This Tuesday we will be showing "Walk Hard-The History of Dewey Cox". John C. Reilly stars as fictional pop star Dewey Cox in this parody of the increasingly predictable rags-to-riches music biopic. In my opinion it is just a parody on the movie "Walk The Line" which makes it even funnier. I loved it! We open the doors at 6:00 P.M. for those of you who would like to eat and we will be starting the movie at sundown (approx. 8:45 P.M.). If you have any questions please give me a call. We look forward to seeing you! - Jessie Rutowski, jessierutowski[-at-], 6121343100

Basilfields Revised Summer Schedule, M W F, 10 A.M.-1 P.M. - Now that real summer is here, we're going to earlier hours and three days a week, beginning Monday July 28th. The new schedule is Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10 A.M.-1 P.M. The new crop of sweet corn will be ready in a couple of weeks--stay tuned. We currently have basil, mixed lettuce, arugula, garlic chives, swiss chard, spinach, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, papayas, mangoes, bananas when available. Don't forget some colorful zinnia flowers to brighten your home. - Ben Solis, basilfields2[-at-], 612-147-0435, Todos Santos

Señor Greenberg's Mexicatessen In Cabo San Lucas - Wanted to pass along a recommendation for the new Señor Greenberg's "Mexicatessen" restaurant in the food court of Plaza San Lucas next to the WalMart in Cabo San Lucas where we had an excellent breakfast. Great food and very reasonable prices, plus free wireless Internet inside and outside. There are also a few computer stations available. Very pleasant and clean, and with very good, friendly service.

To contrast this with our previous morning's breakfast just a few hundred yards away, we were thoroughly unimpressed by the new VIP's restaurant. Expensive (especially for a "chain" restaurant), with far below-average food and service. No reason for us to ever go back to VIP's again when Greenberg's is so close by. - Alan And Debra,, Todos Santos

Dig/dive/plunge Into The Mysteries - In the Seeds Of Civilization novels, a Seattle aerospace engineer and his team of amateur investigators follow a trail of strange artifacts in a search of the truth about the age and origin of Earth’s earliest civilizations. Each new investigation reveals clues that are truly “out of this world!”
