News and Events, Questions and Answers


1000 Mile Bicycle Ride To Put A Positive Spin On Baja - The first annual Baja Love Ride will be held in February 2011. The Baja Love Ride is a 1000 mile bicycle ride over 15 days. This "ride for a cause" fundraising event will entail a 1000 mile bicycle ride from Rosarito to Cabo San Lucas. The ride begins on February 14th, 2011 in Rosarito Beach and finishes 15 days later on February 28. Riders and teams can participate in the entire 1000 mile course or they can join in two other shorter rides as part of the Baja Love Ride. There will be a five mile "Good Start" ride, which represents the good start a child needs in life; which is perfect for children and families to enjoy. There will also be a single day (one leg) community ride complete with overnight camping as an option. All proceeds from each leg of the Baja Love Ride will go to children's charities located in the communities along the route.

While the main goal of the Baja Love Ride is to raise as much money for children's charities as possible, organizers believe there are added benefits if the ride is a success. The organizers of the event hope the Baja Love Ride will reinforce what Baja residents already know---the area is safe, welcoming and a wonderful haven that everyone should support and enjoy. The Baja Love Ride organizers hope the ride will change the negative perception of the area and believe it will also give Mexico the chance to showcase the huge investment in the Baja highway system.

The Baja Love Ride will be in Todos Santos on February 28th. Everyone with a bike or without is encouraged to participate. Proceeds raised in Todos Santos will go towards supporting Hogar del Nino A.C. orphanage in Todos Santos.

Stepping Out - Food and Entertainment


Hotel California Presents Jazz LP - Saturday, January 8th - Back by overwhelming request one of our favorite bands! "Jazz LP" from Xalapa, Veracruz - Debbie Stewart, info [ - a t - ] hotelcaliforniabaja.com, www.hotelcaliforniabaja.com, 145.0525


Tracy Durland - Singing For My Community / Cantando Para Mi Comunidad - Sat. Jan 22 7-9pm At Cafelix - Tracy Durland is a singer of ecclectic Jazz expanding her musical selection to include songs that reflect her community. Comprising half the program are melodies in Spanish; beloved Boleros and Romantic Tunes from the era in Mexico which coincided with the flourishing of Jazz in the USA during the 30s-60s. Juxtaposed with some great American Jazz Standards, this is an opportunity, here in Todos Santos, to share in the enjoyment of classic songs from our two cultures. Mark your calendars for a special evening of entertainment.



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 [ - a t - ] gmail.com, 6121450274, Baja California Sur

Has Anyone Seen Zapatilla? - If you are the fortunate one who has captured the heart of Zapatilla, a white Husky/German Sheperd with a coiled tail who has been missing 4 weeks from La Pastora beach would you please get in touch with me? She has many friends with whom she wanders off for weeks at a time but none of the usual suspects know of her whereabouts. Please let me so that I can sleep soundly knowing she is in your tender loving care. Her fellow pack , equine herd and yours truly are concerned and miss her. Thank you! - Euva Anderson, horsejunkies [ - a t - ] hotmail.com, 044 624 14 16881, Todos Santos

Quote of the Day: " While crossing the US-Mexican border on his bicycle, a Cyclist was stopped by a border guard who pointed to two sacks the man had on his shoulders. "What's in the bags?", asked the guard. "Sand," said the Cyclist. "Get them off – we ll take a look," said the guard. The Cyclist did as he was told, emptied the bags, and proving they contained nothing but sand, reloaded the bags, put them on his shoulders and continued across the border. Two weeks later, the same thing happened. Again the guard demanded to see the two bags, which again contained nothing but sand. This went on every week for six months, until one day the Cyclist with the sand bags failed to appear. A few days later, the guard happened to meet the Cyclist downtown. "Say friend, you sure had us crazy," said the guard. "We knew you were smuggling something across the border. I won't say a word – but what is it you were smuggling?"

The Cyclist smiled and answered, "Bicycles..." " ~
