Welcome to Chardnado

   Memories are full of mirth and they play tricks on your mind like a teasing-loving but pretty schoolgirl. I went to bed in March 13, 2001 working for Vons-Coronado as their wine guy and I woke up today in 2013 working for Vons-Coronado. My recollections in between those dates are like whipped cream clouds sailing across the hungry man in the moon and then disappearing into the starry night. Did I work for Avenue Liquor, Wally's Marketplace, the Wine Bank, Harvest Ranck Markets and…See More

Mr. Vino: Italian on the Outside, Russian River on the Inside

I parked my crappy, dappy and yet happy cherry-tomato colored truck on Fourth Avenue, I spilled out the driver's side with a fist-full of dead Presidents embossed on coins to feed the ghoulish hunger of the Satanic parking meter. I saw lovely Rita driving by on her parking enforcement golf cart like a ravenous Great White Shark stalking her prey. She had a pretty scarlet-colored lip-stick sharp smile and she was laughing like a lunatic. Lovely Rita looked like she was on a yellow-parking ticket…See More

Take Me to Your Liter Part I A Mr.Vino Adventure

  It was one of those days that you love that your on the Coronado Island, where you feel you have died and gone to heaven. You have to pinch yourself to make sure it isn't all  but a happy dream, beautiful sun, clear warm water, an ice cold Mexican beer and the pleasant company of stunning-looking bikini girls. A blissful the feeling was going through my bones. I was lounging around Mr. Vino's pool, surrounded by three of Mr. Vino's most lovely girlfriends, the two blond bookend bombshells,…See More

Some Like It Hotter!

   I was sitting with Mr. Vino at his his dining table enjoying cheese and crackers and a tasty glass of Andrew Rich Pinot Noir in his Ocean Boulevard mansion overlooking the big blue ocean, when he made his stunning announcement.  Mr. Vino decided to remake a classic movie like Some Like it Hot.  He was going to produce the film with his girlfriend Talley Ho and it was going to star his other girlfriend Mary Melons.  The director of the film was the cult filmmaker, Tim Burton and was going to…See More

Air Force One & 1/2

I was finishing a glass of Mission Brewery Blond Ale by Mr. Vino's pool and enjoying the warm sunshine. Suddenly, I was being charmed by the vision of  the dripping wet  Mary Melons rising out  the pool  like the Goddess  Aphroditein her all American red, white and blue bikini. When Mr. Vino broke this spell, by telling me that Mary and I  had to get ready for a very important guest.  I quickly put on my five dollar flip flops, Beatles T-shirt and  Chargers lighting bolt baseball cap and Mary…See More

Mr. Vino: The Power of Lafite Part II

After a delightful swim with Talley Ho and Mary Melons, Mr. Vino and I caught some more sunshine with the gorgeous girls. We chatted about why there were no oranges or orange trees on Orange Avenue. "Why is called Orange Avenue? There are mostly palm trees on the Avenue. If you drive into Lemon Grove, there is a giant lemon as big as a baby elephant," I said. After a slight pause, Mr. Vino said, "Maybe we don't see the orange trees because we don't look for them." "What!" I…See More

Mr Vino: The Power of Lafite: Part I by Frank Marquez

While most of the country was buried under several feet snow, it was an ordinary day in Coronado, warm and sunny. I was ready to go to the beach and armed myself with my faded beach towel, my cheap ten dollar sunglasses and my Rite -Aid sunscreen. I was wearing a pair of orange surf shorts to catch the relaxing Coronado sunshine. I was watching the green waves tumble like a troupe of Chinese acrobats onto the shore, baking in the sun like a happy little lizard. I thought how logical it was for…See More
