February 6 is statewide election day here in Baja Sur. It’s also Superbowl day. Normally liquor sales are severely restricted before and during election day but exceptions have been made for tourist bars/restaurants in the past. It remains to be seen if they will be made again. One possible way for a bar to serve liquor during the Superbowl is to claim they are hosting a private party.
I certainly hope that the Sandbar gets their act together in time for the big game. They have two issues, the liquor one and getting an English language feed for the game. The Spanish language feeds have completely different ads and what fun is it to miss all the crazy Superbowl ads?
The state of Guerrero just had their elections and an unusual coalition of center-right and leftists defeated the PRI candidate. You can read more at this link from the Miami Herald : Mexico Election Results Hurt PRI’s Comeback Bid
One last thought: most of the publicity for candidates here in Baja is done through radio, newspapers and signs since we have no true on air local TV stations. Here’s a photo of the stoplight corner in Todos Santos, in full regalia for election season.
