07 July 2011 | Club de Capitanes
Last night I decided to go to hora feliz (happy hour), to anyone that knows me that should come as no big surprise. I decided on a place called Club de Capitanes, which means Captains Club...seemed appropriate. Now let me tell you that hora feliz here is really happy, first of all a Pacifico is only 15 pasos, which is about $1.35 USD, second of all happy hour lasts until 7:00 PM. As happy hour was winding down in comes two of the cutest little kids you've ever seen, they each had a box of handmade jewelry with them, which is pretty typical here in San Carlos. The owners of Club de Capitanes and all of the employees seemed to know Gabriella and Ruben and after they made their rounds showing off their jewelry, the manager sat them down and brought them a large plate of french fries. As they sat, very politely I might add... and munched away at the fries, all eyes were on them, you couldn't help but adore them...they were so cute. After they finished up the fries they got up and VERY slowly made their way towards the door, again showing off their jewelry. Gabriella is quite the salesgirl, at 14 she speaks a fair amount of english, when I inquired about purchasing more than one bracelet she started offering me multi product discounts. So not a bad plan, wait till the customers have had a few brewskis, get some free fries from the restaurant and work the intoxicated gringos on your way out. So I'm sure Amber, Ashley and Shaybo are asking soooo did you buy anything? Well you'll just have to wait until I get back to find out.
