05 Jan Coffee Talk/News from Xochitl’s Cholla Cafe
RESTAURANT NEWS: We are not trying to compete with the Reef’s lovely piano
bar, but we do now have a piano in the restaurant for anyone who cares to
play. It has been a very fun addition. There are some local excellent
musicians who have graced us with some fine music. We also now have
wireless internet available, so bring in your laptop or use the in-house
computer, and tend to business while socializing in the community atmosphere
of the cafÃ©.
New on the menu: Our tortilla soup is back by popular demand, and is an
excellent meal on these cold days. Our shish-ka-bobs served on Thursday and
Friday nights are also very popular, as are our Monday night all you can eat
spaghetti nights. This all in addition to our regular fare of good food and
CHOLLA CHARITIES: After receiving news of a high infant mortality rate
during the cold season, we have been receiving and distributing many
blankets and warm clothes for children. You are welcome to bring these by
the restaurant, but you will be cheating yourself out of a very rewarding
experience of meeting the local community if you were to take them to the
back streets of Penasco and look for families to give them to. Either way,
the important thing is to share the surplus as quickly as we can, so that
families don’t suffer from the cold.
We thank you all for generous monetary donations to Cholla Charities, also.
With the prosperity from the development in the city, families are not
generally hungry, as in the past. However, if there is any sort of
emergency, the bottom falls out on the family’s delicate financial
stability. This includes funerals, illness, and accidents. We raised over
$3000 through the holidays, and have spent about half of that already. Keep
your donations coming in when it is possible.
