Libation Nation Tequila Episodes

Libation Nation with Ray Posado is ramping up to begin shooting 1/2 Hour Episodes after the wrap of Season 1 of The Inn Crowd which will be in the Spring of 2013. Ray Posado will introduce viewers into the world of Libations with a behind the scenes All Access Tour full of surprises and fun for the viewers. Three Episodes which are being called The Tequila Trilogy will begin in Las Vegas which is the home of John Paul Mitchell Systems which is the Parent Company of Patron Tequila which is now in its 4th Decade of Production and is considered the King of Tequilas!
The 2nd Episode in The Tequila Trilogy will take Ray down the Las Vegas Strip to the 3rd Cabo Wabo Cantina to be built by Tequila Aficionado and Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Member Sammy Hagar for an in depth look into how Cabo Wabo Tequila went from just a way to feed the need for a Thirsty Cantina in Cabo San Lucas during an Agave Shortage to what it is today as a Worldwide Mega Brand.
Sammy Hagar took his Tequila from just another Rock Star owned Booze Brand to an 80 Million Dollar Payday for his hard work when he sold 80% of the company to Campari Skyy which extended the reach of the brand to a Worldwide Level and quickly became one of the most recognized and requested Alcohol Brands on the Planet!

Episode 3 of the Trilogy will take us to the oldest Tequila Brand on the Planet.

Casa Noble was founded during the American Revolution way back in 1776 making it the Tequila with the longest history of continuous production and is still produced with the same formula in the sleepy town of Tequila Jalisco Mexico. Little has change for this fantastic Tequila over the years except for one major change recently.

Carlos Santana bought Casa Noble and is now not only a Legendary Guitarista in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but now El Rey De Tequila since he now owns the oldest and most respected Tequila brand on the Planet. 

Libation Nation will also have other shows about Tequila and its often bastardized cousin Mezcal but these 3 episodes promise to be unique. There is even talk that these 3 episodes may also either become 6 half hour episodes or 3 one hour episodes so stay tuned for more as it all develops.

Happy National Tequila Day America!

Happy National Tequila Day America! July 24th has been designated as National Tequila Day for our Gringo Friends North of the Border. Here in Mexico, everyday is National Tequila Day especially the closer you get to a Cantina Amigos!

So Let's all raise our shot glass high and say Salud!
I prefer not to use the salt and lime or as I call them "Training Wheels". Yes I said Lime, we do not have many Lemons in Mexico as they are very rare so the Lemon Slice is more of a Gringo tradition. The Lime and the salt is an old tradition that was more as a sterilization process rather than flavor as lime juice and salt together kill bacteria which was very present in the old days on the glasses in Cantinas. 
So many Brands to choose from, which one do you prefer? This National Tequila Day I am choosing Casa Noble which is the Brand owned now by Carlos Santana.
So no matter if you are a Tequila Aficionado Like me or just a Beginner like my cousin Paco seen below this is your day to enjoy!
We call Paco "The Fatman". He always looks like he has just Farted. He used to drink Rum but I set him up with some Tequila and he now has seen the light. Paco runs a taco restaurant here in Los Cabos and when you come to Los Cabos please go check out his place called Paco's Tacos.

Club Hopping In Los Cabos Mexico With Ray Posado!

Now that I got your attention you will notice something a bit different about todays Blog Post.
We are going on a Golf Adventure here in Los Cabos!

Cabo San Lucas and the Los Cabos area, in the span of a few short years, has become one of North America’s hottest golf destinations—and it’s no wonder. The Tom Weiskopf designed eighteen-hole Desert Course at Cabo del Sol, marks the sixth championship golf course to open here in the Cabo San Lucas area.
 From humble beginnings at the nine hole Campo de Golf in San Jose del Cabo, in the last decade golf has grown to become the number two attraction in Los Cabos. The municipality of Los Cabos, an area comprising roughly half of the Baja California Sur peninsula below the capital city of La Paz, includes Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, The Tourist Corridor and Todos Santos. In 1990, it was Don Koll, a dedicated golfer and successful California developer who commissioned Hall of Fame great, Jack Nicklaus, to design twenty-seven holes of golf at the Palmilla (now One&Only Palmilla) resort.
The impact on Cabo San Lucas and the Los Cabos area has been phenomenal. Koll envisioned this area as a world-class resort vacation center, and today there are three Nicklaus designed golf courses in Los Cabos—twenty-seven holes at Palmilla, eighteen holes at the Eldorado Golf Club at Cabo Real, and eighteen holes at Cabo del Sol. To round things out, there are the Robert Trent Jones II designed Cabo Real Golf Club, Dye Corporation designed Cabo San Lucas Country Club and the Tom Weiskopf designed eighteen-hole Desert Course at Cabo del Sol along the Tourist Corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. Los Cabos has been the site of the PGA Senior Slam Tournament since 1995, attracting golf greats such as Raymond Floyd, Dave Stockman and Hale Irwin.

Though considered by some as intimidating, the six signature championship golf courses are pricey to play, but ultimately playable. Low handicappers will find them challenging and will appreciate the genius and skill that went into their designs, while less experienced players will be rewarded with a good day’s combat. The magnificent terrain is comparable to that found in Arizona and California desert golf courses. What sets Los Cabos apart is the presence of the Sea of Cortez, a sparkling water-wonderland of incredible hues reaching as far south as the eye can see. Golfers here in Cabo San Lucas Mexico have an added bonus eleven months of rain-free vacation play.

Move Over Las Vegas Place Your Bets In Cabo San Lucas!

For many years Caliente has operated a Sports Book Betting Facility on Marina Blvd in Cabo San Lucas and one day not too Long ago that all changed. The old Sports Book located next door to The Cabo Lounge and above Subway one day closed its doors to little fanfare but much wonder. Not long afterwards we here in Cabo found out why and we were more than pleased.
Caliente was about to really heat up the action with a move into its new home in the Puerto Paraiso aka The Mall!
The one arm bandidos had arrived finally in Los Cabos! This gives Cabo San Lucas a real feel for excitement and action and everyone for the most part was very happy but still there was something missing.
Low and behold the Table Games began to arrive!
Slot Machines and The Famous Caliente Sports Book however continue to be the most popular and sought after attraction at the new facility.

This is how the Caliente Company describes their operation...

At Caliente Puerto Paraiso, a gambling hall, restaurant, and bar, virtually any sporting event or horse race in the United States and Mexico is fair game. 

You can follow the results on our TVs. 

The bar, at the back of the smoky betting salon, is filled with red lounge chairs and black, fake marble tables. 

It's open 9 AM to midnight.

You can wager on football, basketball, baseball, soccer, races, and boxing matches, and more at legalized sports books in Mexico. 

Race and sports book, 185 electronic terminals and more.

There is only one in Cabo San Lucas, "Caliente Race, Sports & Book" located in the Puerto Paraiso.

If you can’t stand to miss an opportunity to place a wager on your favorite team, this is the place to go. Stop in, check the odds, and place your bet. Odds are similar to Las Vegas lines.

There’s a small lounge with multiple televisions if you want to watch the action and count your winnings (or mourn your losses).

Caliente Puerto Paraiso is the place to be if you want to relax in a casual atmosphere and watch any sporting event on any major network.

Race, Sports & Book
Blvd. Lazaro Cardenas s/n Local #292 inside
Puerto Paraiso MallCabo San Lucas,
Baja California Sur, Mexico
Phone: 143-8099.

Open Mon–Fri, 10am–12am; Sat–Sun, 9am–12am.

Well I hope this has been helpful and I will see you at Caliente!

Cabo San Lucas After Dark With Ray Posado

Here it is the middle of July and things are really heating up here in Los Cabos. This time of year your schedule changes and Geckos hide under the rocks in the heat of the day. With Temperatures approaching the century mark, sweet relief from the heat can be found with air conditioning by day and going out at night. The Latter is what this about...
The first stop I needed to make at about 9:30 PM was for Dinner at one of my favorite places in the Marina that is owned by a friend of mine and they never will let you down. They offer everything from Sushi to Steaks and the food is fantastic and a great place to People watch.
When you visit Cabo you must try Solomon's Landing in the Marina and tell them Ray Posado sent you. Oh did I mention they have Killer Desserts too? Having fueled up on a wonderful fresh filet of Wahoo it was time for me to head out into the night...
The Marina in Cabo at night is an eclectic blend of sounds, smells and people that is similar to a European Sea Port but only much warmer and the Language is much more Romantic to Listen to. The occasional Lone Mariachi can be seen strumming and tuning his Guitar followed by a chiclet vendor. As I left Solomons Landing I asked myself where I should go and my feet answered me by carrying me to The Tanga Tanga.
My friends Robert and Daniel were at the bar when I arrived at The Tanga Tanga. They both have boats in the Marina and look to the Tanga Tanga as a place to obtain customers for Fishing Charters and do quite well doing so. I had a Shot of Casa Noble Tequila with them and I was off again into the night in search of who knows what at this point but I knew whatever it was it was going to be fun and result in me sleeping in to beat the heat on a lazy Sunday. I made the decision to head over to check things out at another favorite locals hangout on Marina Blvd and just like that I was off...
I arrived at my next stop the Cabo Lounge to find people sitting outside which was unusual to me but when I found out that the inside was packed I did not further question why. It was now nearing 11 PM and the 2 block stroll from the previous watering hole had made me thirsty once again so I ordered up a Casa Noble Tequila with a Coke Chaser and checked my email on their house computer as getting email on my smartphone is not something I like to do ( the screen is too small ). After visiting with a few close friends for the better part of 30 minutes I was off again into the night...
As I was heading to my next destination I was sidetracked by Slims Elbow Room aka The Worlds Smallest Bar! The place holds more Tequila Bottles than it does People as seen here...
The bar has a capacity of about 6 people including the Bartender. The only exception to this rule I can think of is if Circus Vargas is in town and a clown car pulls up front and 48 Clowns pile out of a VW Beetle. Great little place to get your drink on with many Tequilas to choose from at reasonable prices for a Marina Blvd Haunt. I had my shot and I was off to my next stop...
It was time for me to hit Rip's which is a local institution located in the Plaza Mariachi right below the World Famous Cabo Wabo Cantina.
This open air bar has everything you need and if they do not have it then you can find it in the open air festive atmosphere that surrounds Rip's. From Tacos to Tequila to T-Shirts this Plaza has it all. I had myself a couple of Casa Noble Shots here and shot the breeze with friends as the clock struck Midnight. Wanting to keep on the move so the sweat did not have time to gather on me I got up from my stool and headed out across the Street to one of the oldest if not oldest place in Cabo, The Giggling Marlin.
In the early 1970's Cabo San Lucas was not much more than a sleepy Fishing Village with few roads and even fewer buildings. The Giggling Marlin was far from what it is today and started out as a Taco Cart but has expanded to become an institution Loved by Locals and Tourist from all over the world. They also have brought new meaning to the term "Hangout Spot" as witnessed below...
Seeing a few of my friends I had myself a shot of Tequila and then grabbed a Cuban Cigar at the cigar store at the entrance to the Marlin and I was off again heading to Squid Roe...
Arriving at Squid Roe I noticed the place was packed and now that it was after 1 AM I thought it might be best if I grabbed some Tacos at my favorite place for Pastor Tacos I know of before they closed, so I was off to Pepe's Tacos...
Pepe's who also has a location in Puerto Vallarta is famous for their Pastor Tacos and if you have never tried them you are truly missing the worlds best taco! Especially one from Pepe's!
Artful craftsman take sharp knives and carve the succulent meat much like a sculptor takes to granite and then tops it by flicking a pineapple slice from above the meat onto the taco which makes for the most desired taco in all of Mexico!
These ain't no Gringo Tacos these are the real deal! I started off with 4 of them along with a Double Shot of Casa Noble and a Coke.
Ok call me a pig, but I ordered 2 more! They are awesome! Now it was time to sit back and order another Casa Noble and People Watch! Locals get freaky at night and are fun to watch as seen here...

Finishing up my Tacos & Tequila it was now getting close to 2 AM. Even though the bars would be open for another 2 hours or so I noticed my batteries on my phone and camera were getting low so I thought I would call it a night. What better way too than on a full tummy of Taco Goodness! Squid Roe would have to wait until next time. It will be there and so will I so in closing I headed off into the night to my bungalow in search of slumber...
