Morning, readers!

Ever thought about dropping everything and moving to Mexico? I have. And

so did Catherine Beeghly, a CN&R contributor who up and took her

Chihuahua, Snickers, with her to Puerto Vallarta. She shares the story

of her personal journey in this week's feature story.

In other news: The future of the El Rey is in question; Starbucks gets a

"parklet" downtown; and pending state laws could make it easier for

rural patients to get access to medical care.

Don't forget: There's one week left to vote for your favorite things! Go

Until next time,
