I don't recall who asked this question, but Joe's Café Marina is open and observing health protocols. Please feel confident to enjoy your meals there. They may have to close soon due to the infernal "remodeling" of the waterfront, a whim of the gobernador in cahoots with our mayor to raise under-the-table funds for this year's election cycle at the expense of the hard-working and decent citizens of Zihuatanejo who are already suffering from the damn virus without losing even more tourists due to the whims and ocurrencias of our government officials.

Thanks Rob, that was me, but I did have breakfast there this morning and it was good as ever.

Joe's Cafe Marina closes at noon. We love his Chilaquiles!

The construction just started yesterday in front of Casa Marina, so Joe might not be able to open for a while. I'll try to stop by there later or mañana. ;-)

Was just told that it is not open today nor is El Cafecito.

So the "remodelación" is costing locals to close and lose business at the absolute worst possible moment during this infernal pandemia, and so far neither the Gober Precioso nor the PresiMuni have offered any compensation to the people affected. They won't even talk to the local neighbors about their damned proyecto. Lupita and I have been trying to help some of the folks displaced by the construction, but they got removed again by the damned obra del infierno and now have lost their only sustenance. It's all I can do not to call out the politicians responsible for this obra, but I don't need to put my family's life at risk. All I can do is ask that organizations like POR LOS NIÑOS and SAILFEST and GUITARFEST stop allowing themselves to be used by some of these politicians for their own political self-promotion. This is an election year and decent people need to stay far away from the political arena if they want to avoid the stench.

Glad I had my breakfast there yesterday morning. Looks like it may be a while before I'll get another one there.

As soon as Joe opens, we'll go there for breakfast because I am a major fan of his Chilaquiles.
