That is Cheryl, my wife at Manne's Biergarten with Mario, seems that the Sunday prior our first full day I got a bit "you know" at Manne's now tonight I walk up everybody says "Johnny!!!" and Cheryl knows people I don't remember



It must have been a good night the security guard at PM said in the morning "you good?" I said "yeah are you"

Seems the bruise on my back came from trying to navigate the railing over the pool going into PM. Cheryl said she gave up





I love that stuff

I cannot say enough about La Brocherie on Ave. 15 y 4th and 6th streets. We have a group again we all met through PI and there are several missing this year. We come from all over the US, Canada and Mexico and try to be here about the 1st week in Dec.



This chicken is amazing and Fabian is passionate about his food, great guy



We went back a couple times, it is that good

Maybe if we were here more or longer it might get old but we both love the water here, temperature is perfect

Another dish not to be missed again at Playa Maya, the famous Playa Maya Coconut Shrimp, they are huge and juicy dipped in the mango sauce and a bit of house habanero sauce

Breakfast is included at Playa Maya and they have four great options but I know they make great Eggs Moliterno and it was fantastic. The plantains on top were delicious skin kept on they were very sweet.



You can go to Playa Maya for breakfast even if not staying there, just walk in they'll take care of you.

My yearly picture with Susie Q, I know she prefers better shots but at least I can like a picture with me in it. I like to tell my oldest daughter "well mom wasn't around!"



Now on next years trip I wonder what the view will be directly behind us sitting there between the palapa post and palm tree. That should be open in some manner soon and looks to be beach club type set up.

I walk the beach every day and generally stop there at Blue Parrot and haven't gone in but I like that shot and it looks good printed.

The first Sunday we were in Playa was Manne's Prime Rib and we went Mine went home in a to-go box, which on Tuesday I asked Raciel the manager if they could heat that for me? He asked if I want frajitas/ Si

Fantastic, maybe worth bringing one back for this



They added rice, beans and guac chips
