2015....."wow"...My apologies for taking so long to update this page. I have been trying to figure out what to write here.
Man, .....I always have this problem wondering where to start....well, here we go...
Our 18th year of existing brings a lot of mixed feelings for me. As I start to step back from being a very active member of the Islander community for personal reasons of which some of you know, I am starting to feel a little sad and detached......."is this old age?"
Well, still doing that "catering thing".......I can't believe that after all these years of not having a storefront, and of not being able to work unlimited hours, that I am still able to have business from customers who either remember the restaurants, or who have had our food at a function that they had attended. To all of you, thank you for making me happy.....really
Like I mentioned last year, "beef prices" have increased 3 times over, so, unfortunately, my prices have risen for the first time in 3 years........
I will keep my cooking to the items that I've known for years. That way I can't screw something up....."it can happen".....maybe not to me.....but.....
I still have tremendous pride in the food that I serve, I always have and that guests who return to order from me are a testament to that. To you all, my debt of "Thank You" cannot even be measured in a statement here. But know this, I will always be thankful for all of you......"really".
And now the reason for this change....my wife, Belen.....
So, it's been a very "crappy" year for her, resulting a quite a few back steps in her health.....She still has her wits about her on the good days, and maybe not so much on the bad ones. I have unfortunately had to make changes to our world for Belen's safety. We are now not under the same roof as she is currently residing in a care facility where she will be watched over. This will allow me to work without stressing out about her safety. I see her everyday for at least 5 hours.
But through it all, she is still with me, and really,to me, that is the one thing that really matters. I again thank all who ask about her and wish her well, I do relay all of them to her when I see her in the afternoon. It means alot to her that people remember her. And of course, I will keep you all posted on her status.....
So, without getting anymore "sappy", it's time for the recap.....
Da Kine's........still here........but getting older..still
Da Kine's,....still here,......still kicking.....and tasting good as well.....give us a call when you need us, we'll be here....really. Or you can just talk story....you know me, I ALWAYS like to talk story....
Aztec Football and Basketball...."very impressive"....Chargers...."possibilities"......Rams....definitely getting better, way better.....UH football......"oh my god"....and finally...the Lakers...."not as bad as everyone thought, it's WORSE"
Let's all have a great year since the "getting older" doesn't stop,.....really, it doesn't. But you can still smile about it.....
