Isla Mujeres Feb 2013 Part 3

Hair of the Dog Poker Run
Benefitting Isla Animals www.islaanimals.com
This was a blast! We had to 'run' to different bars and at each one we received a cocktail and a card. Bloody Mary at Jax, Margarita at Sunset Grill, Grapfruit Mojito at Ixchel, Coronita at Avalon and Sangria at Fenix. Yes. We completed the run. Our cards sucked but it was so much fun and we got to hang out with some really fun people.

The bar at Ixchel - you can see all of the Poker run participants in green shirts. Since we were staying there that night (yes, I get around), we went upstairs for a bathroom/photo op.


We were all too tired (sloshed) to walk all the way down the beach to the bridge to Avalon, so we cut through the ocean!

I hadn't been out to Avalon since about 2006(?) when some friends were staying there and invited me to hang out for the afternoon. The bar was a really nice place to have a drink. Nice view of the beach. It made me think of that long ago afternoon and my friend Al, so I raised my beer and sent him a 'cheers' in heaven.



Me and Jeff -- he's a blast!


The official poker run tshirt.





Chilequilas from Tacos Tumbras. Second only to Alexia y Giovanni, but they were closed. No worries.




This is the view from Ixchel Penthouse 709 (partly). There was a wedding at Sunset Grill and we had massages on the balcony as the music and festivities drifted upward.

I seriously just sat up from where I was lounging on the beach and snapped this. Viola. Perfection.

Fantastic costumes at Carnivale Celebration on the Square







Tarzan and Me. Yep, we're a 'thing' LOL

Coronation of the Carnival King and Queen (Tarzan and me...again) ;)
