I spent this past weekend in Mexico. I was in Northern Baja just south of Puerto Nuevo Mexico. Puerto Nuevo itself is an old fishing village turned big time tourist attraction boasting the best Lobsters on the West Coast. Although, I must admit I have a hard time buying into that, since I am from the east coast where our lobsters have claws. Despite this, I had a great meal and a great (clawless) lobster.
After dinner in Puerto Nuevo, we all retired to our respective houses. Summer and I headed back to our casa to walk the dogs and relax with friends. A few brave souls decided to head north to a Mexican Strip Club called Virgins. Virgins is in or around Las Gavaiotas which is another story all together. It is the snobby La Jolla of Mexico. Cool little town, clean, great apartments and houses and very safe. I just didn’t feel like I was in Mexico, Gringos everywhere, guards telling us to not talk so loud on the front porch and the supposedly private access to the wave out front was crowded with financially successful San Diego Surfers .
Ok, Back to the Mexican Strip Club story, and no, there is no Donkey Show at Virgins, not that I know what that is. ;-)
Apparently the deal with Virgins is that there are more strippers than customers. I would think that The Peoples Champ would like these odds, but the Mexican Strip Club Crew told me it was “no bueno.” On their way home, the GoGo Crew got pulled over by the Mexican Police. Normally, when you get pulled over by the Mexican police for no infraction, it is a sure thing that you are going to have to pay at least $60 to get out of a ticket or getting your car towed or having to show up at court in front of the judge. Now, here is when it get’s sketchy, they were all wasted! Drinking all day….. Drunk Driving is bad enough, but Driving Drunk in Mexico is crazy!
Luckily, one of the passengers in the car is a local, speaks the language, and more importantly knows the right names to drop. They got out of a Mexican DUI because they had smooth talking local.
Tip for you to avoid jail time, extortion and or bodily harm…when in Mexico, bring a Mexican.
