She was bold and resilient yet warm and welcoming, a vivid representation of the spirit of Mexico and its vibrant society. Dolores, was loved and known to everybody by her nickname, Lolo. Lolo has always had a unique joie de vivre and lived a great life to 103 years old. She was fun, a great Mexican cook, and loved tequila. She was full of ’refranes’, Mexican sayings, and had one for every occasion. With every glass of tequila, her signature toast echoed around the room, “por los presentes y los ausentes.” – acknowledging those present and those no longer with us. Her refranes will be found on some of the collateral in the restaurant adding a fun, authentic touch to the experience. Lolo also loved her birds and kept birdcages in her home. Antique birdcages will be placed on the patio of the restaurant, adding an evocative old Mexico vibe to the space.
Surfing has been a part of Mexican culture since the 1940s. The surf scene evokes a feeling of never ending youth, freedom, adventure, and a desire to live beyond the rules and constraints of modern society.
