Tamarindo Talk

April 24, 2009

Longtime beloved Avellanas resident Lola the pig has passed away. Our condolences to caretakers Christi Bettinsoli and Donatus van Akkeren, who gave Lola the best life a pig could want, and even named their popular restaurant after her.

Since a fire took their old spot, Jim Reilly and Sue Koomen have relocated Kahiki to Pachanga. The restaurant is now open every night except Monday. Jim and Sue want to thank everyone who has helped them get up and running again.

Betto has returned to Costa Rica, and that means he has resumed his tai chi and qigong classes at Ser Om Shanti. They are offered Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m.

At a time when a lot of businesses are closing down, Arnold Sibaja has taken the bull by the horns and opened the iOne Apple store in the GardenPlaza.

According to Arnold, the store is drawing customers because of its premium Mac computer products and Mac-certified technicians.

The shop is also a Dell dealership and offers tech support. It’s open every day from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, call 2653-2400.
