Cultural Purpose Dinners at Cafe Todos Santos - We are happy to present a new program of food and entertainment at Cafe Todos Santos. It is a full calendar of dinners with a cultural purpose: the study and enjoyment of dishes with a different history, philosophy and cooked in different styles. The purpose is a journey through different worlds and different ways to prepare and cook, so that a dinner becomes not only fulfilling for the stomach, but also a pleasure for the eye, the nose and the taste buds. The program will last the whole winter season to March 2011. It will take place four nights a week and so divided:

Tuesdays: Meat Dishes
Wednesdays: Pasta
Thursdays: Vegetarian
Fridays: Seafood.
Each night will introduce dishes cooked in many different ways, using local products and transforming simple staple in culinary treasures. Exclusive does not mean expensive; the dinner includes a single dish, composed of two, three or more variations. A vegetarian night, for instance, could be dedicated to the discovery of different chilies, prepared and cooked in different styles. A "meat" night could highlight the use of skewer, to roast pigs, chicken, and ducks. A "fish" night could be dedicated to frying styles and a "pasta" night could include several types of pasta, mirroring the different character of Italian regions.

If the Mediterranean is considered the cradle of civilization, its cuisine, the real one, will be our guide. So, in the course of the nights, we could organize wine or olive oil tasting. Dinner will start at 18:00 to 20:30 and reservation is recommended, only 20 seats available. The cost will be of 150 Mex$, not including beverages, service and taxes. For reservations, contact Cafe Todos Santos - Angelo Dal Bon, angelodalbon [ -at- ] gmail.com, 6121450274, Baja California Sur

Kitty Needs A Home Of Its Own - My name is Ashley and my foster parents picked me up off the highway in Buena Vista last March after I was hit by a car. After a trip to their Vet we learned that I'm about 5 years old and that my hip was broken in 4 places. I recovered at their house in Pescadero where they have 3 inside cats that aren't happy to share their space with me. I am very mellow and would love a place of my own with a family that doesn't have any other pets. I have luxurious black fur and gold eyes. My foster parents will be happy to send you a photo upon request. Please make my holiday wishes come true. I promise to become your best friend! - Roxanne Rosenblatt, caboroxy [ -at- ] yahoo.com, 612-130-3162, Pescadero


Found Puppies - A pair of adorable sibling pups followed us home on Dec 23. They appeared on Calle Las Brisas. Both are brown one lighter and the other with some black. They might be a couple of months old. We think they were abandoned as they don't want to leave. I can email a photo. Any suggestions about how to find a home for them would be welcomed.
