Purtex,
Nothing special, but Kiosko 13 had very friendly people working there, cold beer and it was close to the stage so you could see the dancers and, boy was the music loud. They would see me coming and have a cold one waiting for me when I got to the counter. Sometimes I even helped out. It's quite a place on Fri & Sat nights.

I am not deployed in Baghdad.

Thanks for asking.

No I did not get a chance to try the El Cono sangria. What is it? Lots of conch, oysters, and the hot pockets. I also tasted the Pitoro, great stuff but burns like hell...

I love going down the hill going west past El Tunel de Guajataca... I have various pics over the years, and the PR flag has faded so much since the 1st time I went... It used to be so vibrant- I hope they replace it soon (if they havent recently).

My favorites, 2 things I couldnt do without in PR:

Crashboat Beach in Aguadilla:



Cafeteria Chano in Aguadilla as well, wow... their chicken <3

This is my son @ Chano's... My fiance is in the back with the swim shorts.

There used to be a Sangria made in Mayaguez that was really, really famous. We used to buy it there by gallons, it was really inexpensive. I can't remember the name of the place. And then the beach in Aguadilla named Crashboat is just incredible.
It is nice to share so many things from my Isla del Encanto!!

The sangria made in Mayaguez is from a place called Fido's. It is very famous.
Here's what Wikipedia has about it:
Sangría de Fido ['fEd-oh] - the heirs of Wilfrido Aponte still bottle "Sangría de Fido", a powerful concoction inspired on sangria, but actually made with fruit juices, Bacardi 151 rum and burgundy wine (technically not from Bourgogne, but produced by E & J Gallo Winery in Modesto, California). Originally bottled by hand by the bartender since the mid-1970s, "Sangría de Fido" has a sizeable reputation outside Puerto Rico, and can claim tasters from as far away as California and Spain. E & J Gallo once awarded Aponte with a "Customer of the Year" award and flew him to their headquarters. Aponte was reportedly offered $250,000 by Bacardi to sell his original recipe once, to which he refused.

Vegas Grl, I have not . Never heard of it either, but I think only once I have been around the San Sebastian area. Lovely area, though.

I went to El Colegio in Mayaguez and we used to drink it like it was water! Many drunken nights after a tough test. Very good! Like I said earlier, El Cono in La Parguera is very good as well. Very strong!!!
