  1. We are looking for a source for several yards of good topsoil to be delivered. Any leads?
  2. Embrey and his team did a fabulous job on my kitchen, indoor and now outdoor. He will be back here Monday if you want me to pass on your info. His cell service is sometimes iffy, but he does respond to whatsapp and even calls fairly quickly during working hours. Try texting him if you don't have whatsapp.
  3. There are two Peneco stores. Main store is downtown next to Nat Mendez Jewelers and one block before Hotel Cuidad de David. The other is just over the overpass, first right, two blocks, turn left, down on the right. I like Peneco but also like to shop at Selecta for excellent fabrics at very good prices. Selecta is just over the overpass on the left, first store past Beverly Hills Plaza. If you're looking for some basic work, I may be able to help. My "workshop" will be open again soon now that the jazz fest is done.
  4. Despite the apparent rumor circulating through our little pueblo, there are LOTS of tickets still available for the Garden Party at the Panamonte Inn on Friday, and also LOTS of tickets available for the fabulous double jam scheduled for Saturday evening at The Rock. Stop by and see us tomorrow at the Tuesday Market or at the office in the Mercado (second floor across from Ro-Her) on Wednesday 9-2 or Thursday 9-2 (you'll be in town anyway for the Parade, right??). Tickets are $25 (CASH ONLY Please), and will also be available at the door until we reach capacity. Other Jams available for pre-purchase or at the door are Baru Restaurant following the show in Central Park, and also at Baru Friday evening after the show at Valle Escondido. These tickets are $10. The Jams at Mike's are currently sold out for pre-sale. A limited number of tickets MAY be available at the door starting about 8:45 if space permits. Also available are a limited number of tickets to the shows at Valle Escondido on Friday evening, and Saturday and Sunday. These tickets are available online at www.mieventos.com, in person at the office, and at the door (space available). If you are still thinking about attending the "Biggest Little Festival in the World," GET YOUR TICKETS NOW! You don't want to miss out!

  8. You love music, but still don’t have tickets for the 2017 Boquete Jazz & Blues Festival? Haven’t you seen the lineup? Not yet mastered the ways of the web? Holding out against the technological take-over as a matter of principle? Do you prefer a face-to-face encounter or telephone conversation? If the online-sales setup has been holding you back, there is good news! The festival is opening an office on the second floor of the Boquete public market, located on Avenida A Este, across from Romero. Beginning December 9, the office will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday in December. We are here to assist with the purchase of festival tickets and jam packages, as well as answer questions on the blues bus providing transportation from Albrook and Coronado to Boquete. Don’t put it off any longer! Ticket prices increase on January 1, so drop by the new office or call us at 6409-0488 before the end of the year. The deadline for the reduced ticket prices also applies to the continuing online sales. Either way, get your tickets now!
  9. Yep, saw the map on their site but doesn't give details about locations in Chiriqui other than that there are some.
  10. Is there a Punto Pago orange kiosk in Boquete anywhere? Seems like I've seen one but not sure where. It's an orange kiosk where you can pay bills, recharge phone, etc. If not Boquete, location in David or places between? Gracias.
  11. BTW - Mike's is open for breakfast from 8:00 to 11:00. Come early and grab a bite to eat!
