welcome home yuma: My Friend, Yuma, Arizona - 06/10/13 10:14 AM
Years ago I would see a black kid riding a bicycle in and around Yuma, Az. who was always dressed as if he was coming from church, wearing a bicycle helmet and always smiling.
What stood out to me most, was that he was never dressed as one would be to go about riding a bicycle in the middle of the day, and I would find him at random places in and around town. But what stood out to me the most, was that he didn’t really seem to have an urgency to get anywhere, more so as if he … (0 comments)

Today’s Menu Monday comes from Da Boyz Pizza & Pasta Downtown, located at 284 South Main Street #101 Yuma, Az. 85364 Ph# 928-783-8383.
Da Boyz Pizza & Pasta has two locations, one is in the Foothills and the other is located in downtown Yuma. I exceptionally like the décor, atmosphere and location of the downtown location. What Da Boyz has done for downtown Yuma, is what air conditioning did for the automobile.
As soon as you walk into the historic building, you feast upon the bevy of desserts that they have in the glass show case cabinet. Greeted, then quickly … (0 comments)

Today’s Menu Monday comes from Stan’s Market Place, located at 1920 South 1st Avenue Yuma, Az. 85364; (928) 783-2526.
Stan’s Market Place is a neighborhood grocery store, laundry mat and a quick bite for Mexican food all under one roof. What I love about Stan’s Market Place is that it reminds me of the “tienditas” found in Mexico within the neighborhoods. Where you could just walk a few houses down to a home that has converted its front living room into a store, and buy miscellaneous items people are looking for, without going to the large markets found on the commercialized … (0 comments)

Today’s Menu Monday comes from Mariscos Mar Azul, located 1314 South 14th Avenue, Yuma, Az. 85364.
Mariscos Mar Azul provides an upscale seafood atmosphere without the upscale price. Since the time of opening their doors, they have consistently worked on providing an atmosphere in line with their menu and I think they have tuned it in.
One of the items on their menu that I really enjoy feasting upon is their Aguachile. You can order it in either red, or green sauce, and I like the green sauce, the milder of the two sauces. Aguachile is butterflied shrimp, seasoned … (0 comments)

Today’s Menu Monday comes from Las Palapas Taco Grill, located at 362 West 32nd Street Yuma, Az. Although Las Palapas has a total of three locations in Yuma; 32nd Street, The Foothills location & 16th Street, I highly recommend the 32nd Street location over the other two. Although I have never been to their Phoenix, Az. location, they have one located off of Thomas & 40th Street.
Las Palapas brings you the Baja Mexican Beach feel without leaving Yuma. They have a great variety of salsas from their salsa bar, Mexican bottled beer, tasty chips and some of … (2 comments)

Today’s Menu Monday comes from Pueblo Viejo in Los Algodones, Baja California, Mexico. Los Algodones, or Algodones, Mexico, is a very short drive from Yuma, Arizona.
