I first learned about San Pasqual, patron saint of cooks and shepherds, from my friends Gil and Lucy in Puerto Vallarta where I purchased the wood carving at the top of this post. I will be writing a piece on Gil and Lucy soon. There are many sources online that discuss San Pasqual. You can read one of them HERE. It is said that a chef’s kitchen can never contain too many images of San Pasqual. I am at this very moment preparing Thanksgiving Dinner for family and friends and it is cheering and consoling to have his little wooden statue staring down on me. I am convinced that the food I prepare benefits from his supervision.
The Sea Gull Cellar Bar was famous for the napkin art created by local artists, customers, and employees. I have selected a few napkins that I think are appropriate for Thanksgiving. Enjoy.

David you are such a fine gift to our community. THANK YOU so much.
There are hearts still awake loving what you’ve done here.
ps. The carrot juice napkin was passed around the table. I see at least four artists’ hands in it.
You are very kind, Max. Thanks.
So many memories. How many pieces of napkin art do you have, David?
Not as many as I would like. Yes, memories, where we all end up sooner or later.
Hey Dave, Peter Russell here….I recall boxes of napkin art in the storage behind the bar. Priceless..
Oh David…you’ve done it again!!! It’s wonderful to have memories stirred and shared. Thanks for including me.
