“House of Blues is a great place for live music in the evenings. You can catch concerts and more at the live music venue (check their website). However, my recommendation is the Sunday "Gospel Brunch" - Yes it really is gospel music over a terrific southern-style brunch. Regardless of your religion this is a fun time with amazing food and talented musicians. For a flat rate you can get a full breakfast / brunch buffet. ”

Store
“Again, I had to think of a way to work around the limits of this program to tell you of another unusual and wonderful happening in San Pancho. EntreAmigos, working with one of the founders of the original Cirque du Soleil, who has a home here, create the Cirque du Ninos. Each year the real Cirque sends down a dozen or so acrobats and actors to train the children of our little town a range of acrobatic skills. They spend six weeks in training and then in one glorious weekend, we have the Children's Circus. Can you believe all of this for little San Pancho? ”

Art Gallery
“If you like pop art and modern medias, this is a great gallery for you. We visit every time and always leave with something new for our collection. It is just a small store with a handful of artist being featured but every time we come, we see something new or that catches our eyes. The staff have always been friendly and knowledgeable about the art and sometimes you will catch the artist there sharing about their art and signing prints. The only thing I do not like about Pop Gallery is that my wallet is always a little lighter when I visit because I just have to have a another piece for our collection.”
