Mr J. recently had a birthday.
(He doesn’t like me calling him Mr J., but since he doesn’t read this blog, who cares? Plus he told me not to reveal his true identity on this blog).
For some reason, every year Mr J. celebrates his birthday in a quiet, sober manner down at Pueblo Laguna, along with close family and friends. I’m convinced that the next night he goes out on a big blowout down in Villaricos without telling us.
Pueblo Laguna is owned by two brothers who have had the place for years. If memory serves me (it probably doesn’t) they’re half Spanish, half Italian and speak excellent English.
It’s a very nice place. Lots of wood. Pleasent staff (lad’s South African, but the good kind). Nice large bar. Internet café. Sports TV. Smaller inside restaurant, with lots of US style crap on the wall, and a large outside covered patio.
Short answer? It looks like a tourist bar, but it’s run with pride and efficiency. If you’re in the area, pop in for lunch or dinner.
