Atenas Advisor

August 15, 2012

Long-time Atenas resident and former California travel agent Laurel Carpenter has just opened her new travel agency, Tardis Travel, with the slogan “Let us plan your perfect voyage through time and space.” Laurel offers tours within Costa Rica, around Central America and almost anywhere in the world, including flights into low Earth orbit (no kidding!). Contact her at 2446-8452 or email vagabondtimelord@gmail.com, or check out the website at www.tardistravelagency.com.

Be sure to mark your calendar for Feb. 10, 2013, for the next Atenas Charity Chili Cook Off, founded six years ago by Kay and Tom Costello, of Kay’s Gringo Postres. Stef Bogatinoff, chairperson of the event, says, “This past February we hosted 24 chili teams and 1,000 visitors and raised $5,000 for our charity, the Hogar de Vida de Niñez. We expect the upcoming event to be bigger and better.” See www.atenaschilicookoff.com

And, speaking of Kay’s, the café is now serving not just hamburgers, but “Brangus burgers,” featuring choice ground beef direct from the Soto Valerio family’s Brangus cattle ranch in Guanacaste. Kay also takes orders for the finca’s fine ribeyes, N.Y. strips, sirloins, cowboy steaks and other cuts. Deliveries of some of the finest beef you will have ever eaten (and not just in Costa Rica) are made at the café each Thursday for orders received before 10 a.m. Wednesday. Call Kay at 2446-0664 between 8 a.m.-4 p.m. daily.

The Atenas Bridge Club meets each Tuesday at noon, at Don Yayo’s restaurant on the Aguacate (the old highway to Orotina). Visitors welcome.
