24 Mar 2014 #RBQuests: From Old San Juan, Puerto Rico
Wondering what we are doing? I will be sharing social media with the tag #RBQuests. Use this link to the TagBoard or see below to follow along.
My first night in Old San Juan, I was honored to have with Mr. Gay World Puerto Rico, Juan Ortiz, as my guide. Want to learn more about the Mr. Gay World Competition? My interview with Juan will be on YouTube soon!
We began our evening at the NuYoRican next to Da’House with sounds of salsa. We went to meet one of Juan’s fans and eat a top 10 tasty pizza at La Foccacia. This bright restaurant beckons all types of people and acts as a gallery for many local artists and writers. I highly recommend you enjoy the art and the food.
Our next stop was the local favorite, Lupi’s Mexican Grill, which has two locations, one in Old San Juan and boasts 60oz Margaritas! Owned by Eduardo Figueroa, of the NY Mets, San Francisco Giants, and the California Angels, this fusion restaurant is lively, friendly and authentic.
Mr. Gay World Puerto Rico and I then went to Santurce which he called the “gayborhood!” Our stop included Circo, a club renown as the top Saturday night hot spot for drinks and dancing!
Our first hotel was the Condado Plaza Hilton and my room on the 7th floor had outstanding ocean views! For the next two nights, we will stay at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar. More news, photos and video from the road coming soon!
Do you have any Puerto Rico favorites? Share them in the comments below! Maybe we will film there next!
