Moving to Puerto Vallarta... how it all came about was very unexpected and fast. It was one of those moments in life where things just come together at the precise moment and you just feel it inside you that...
Y'all remember Street Bar, right? Neither do I. I'd lived here for maybe three or four months when I happened upon it—and it's RIGHT THERE on Francisca Rodríguez, beside Archie's Wok. Yes, it's obscured a little by the garden in front...
I was recently dubbed the 'Drag Queen Whisperer' by someone here in Puerto Vallarta. This nickname came about from my many interviews and interactions with drag queens that perform here due to my job. I found this to be...
National Tequila Day was earlier this week. An extensive—or maybe just cursory—search online came up with very little information as it regards the origin of this landmark and even which 'nation' celebrates it. Regardless, articles abound as to the...
To the Editor: My husband and I came to Puerto Vallarta for Pride weekend and we had a very good experience.  Your magazine, the O&APV 2018 Pride Guide, had a nice overview of the city and the events.  It was...

The reception from last month’s cover story, The Spectacular Rise and Fall of Peter Deep and Club Manána, and the conversations it prompted locally once it hit the newsstands, illustrated both the long memory of some evergreen residents, and...
Summer is here! The daily temperature is creeping upward. The crowds have dwindled and some of our favorite high season haunts have closed for the season. Or they’ve been completely demolished — and yes, I’m looking at you, Los Guapos...
Of course, you did.  It was everywhere and it was unrelenting. I had a midday appointment that ended around 2pm and, even though I was sooooo hungry, I stopped at the office for a moment and when I was finally...
