This week’s SHOUT OUT goes to Marco and the staff at I Wanna Pizza. They have tasty, fresh, thin-crust pizza as you might expect, but they also have some sensational and unusual topping combinations that you have likely not seen before. Our personal favourite is the Especial… but the Tomorrow Land is not to be missed. There are many more to choose from, and Marco is always up to new challenges and is easily inspired. Do you have a special pizza combo you want? Just ask him! Recent classics have included his corned beef pizza for St. Patrick ‘s Day and pizza that looked like an American flag for the 4th of July. And don’t forget to ask what they have for dessert.

Local Tip: Order the salad, it is HUGE!

Not only is the food great, but I Wanna Pizza is a fun place to hang out. Marco and Paco are fun and attentive hosts. We always have a great time there. If you are really lucky “the real boss” of I Wanna Pizza will pay you a visit.

Cat Lovers Tip: Meet Nieves. She is “the Boss” at I Wanna Pizza 

And as much fun as it is to hang out with the guys at I Wanna Pizza, it is great to know that they also deliver for those nights you just don’t want to go out. Orders can be placed by phone at 998-381-3036 or 998-256-6821. Be sure to tip your delivery guy 🙂

This week’s SHOUT OUT goes to the rooftop bar at La Sirena Resturant and Lounge. In the last year, Anthony and the staff have really upped their game by adding a beautiful rooftop terrace to their restaurant. It is a perfect place to enjoy a drink and tapas at sunset, or well into the evening. Here’s the view!

Local Tip: They have a happy hour from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm Monday to Friday.

All this, plus they have a full restaurant downstairs that offers locally-inspired Mediterranean Cuisine using local ingredients. In the morning, they are open for breakfast (with Richard “Rickie Ricardo”) and they have a New York Style deli that is open in the afternoon. Check their extensive and diverse live music schedule for what bands will be playing and if you are looking to go salsa dancing, stop by on Friday nights. Monday evening is all about jazz. And if there is a sporting event you want to see, they are more than happy to show it on their screens.

04. September 2018 · Comments Off on Shout Out: Tigres! · Categories: Beach Reads The Blog, Shout Outs · Tags:

This week’s SHOUT OUT goes to The Tigres de Quintana Roo. The great Yogi Berra once said, “Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good, too.” And we can think of no better way than to spend a warm evening watching the Tigres de Quintana Roo and having a few cold beers in Cancun. If you haven’t been to a game yet, we highly recommend it. The tickets are inexpensive, easy to get, and there isn’t a bad seat in the house.

The Tigres de Quintana Roo are a Triple-A Minor League Baseball team that play in Cancun. The team is part of the “Zona Sur” (Southern Division) of the Mexican Baseball League and are owned by Major League Baseball All-Star pitcher Fernando Valenzuela. The Tigres won the Mexican League championship in their inaugural season and were dubbed: “El equipo que nació campeón” (The team that was born as champions); unfortunately, they have not had as much success in recent years, but they are always entertaining.

Local Tip: Get a guy!

The ball is fun to watch, but just being in the stands is an experience. There is always a lot of excitement going on. The music is loud. Hawkers walk up and down the aisles selling everything! Food and  drink of course, but also unusual souvenirs and noisemakers. There is a Tiger mascot who has loads of personality, and they even have cheerleaders with energetic, if not necessarily synchronized dance moves.

The best part is that once you find your seat, you never have to leave it to get a drink or snack. When you first sit down, you will be offered something to eat or drink by a man in the stands. He is now “your guy” for the evening. He will run back and forth to get you whatever you want. Beer, tacos, popcorn…. you name it! You don’t have to miss a minute of the game. At the end of the game, he will present “la cuenta” before you leave. At that time you pay him for your food and drinks along with a nice tip for all of his running back and forth. It is a very civilized arrangement.

Even if you did not like baseball, you could go to a game just for the food. You can get pretty much anything from ballpark classics like hot dogs and cotton candy to more Mexican favourites like tacos al pastor.

The Tigres de Quintana Roo’s season runs from March to September so the guys will be wrapping up their regular season games this week. You can find the schedule here. And you can buy tickets online here or at the ticket booth at the stadium in Cancun.

The Tigres play at Estadio de Beisbol Beto Ávila which is near Costco and the downtown Wal-Mart. You can take the ADO bus to and from the game, just keep an eye on the time at the ballyard to ensure you don’t miss the last bus back to Puerto Morelos. Eat, drink and enjoy watching the Tigres de Quintana Roo.
