Hello Tangerineys from Querétaro. If we look a
little worse for the wear it’s because for the
past like let’s say two and a half days we were
participating in what can maybe be described as an
extravagant elaborate mexican rager. A three-day
birthday party. Three-day birthday party. And we
wanted to show you some of the festivities because
we did a little bit of recording while we were
there and i think you’re going to want to see it.
We first made the drive to the small town of San
José Iturbide in the state of Guanajuato and got
settled into our friend’s hotel called El Diezmo.
From there we drove to the party located on a
gorgeous property nestled away behind a modest
unassuming pueblito. Before getting inside we
encountered two security checkpoints to ensure
we were on the guest list. From there we walked
into this breathtaking property. We had no idea
what to expect exactly but this party was over the
top awesome! All guests were seated underneath big
canopies and lavish decorations. It all faced a
stage with live music, more on that in a minute.
It ended up raining pretty hard that day but
thanks to those canopies it didn’t ruin the party.
The servers made sure that our drinks were
never empty. I usually went with Don Julio
70 tequila or Black Label whiskey. By
the end of the night our friends were
making fun of me because i was drinking
whiskey and using tequila as a chaser.
We were then served a three-course meal
followed by them setting up a legit
Mexican taco stand for drunk food later in the
night. We forgot to show you the food because the
servers were very quick with the drinks. There
were several different outstanding performers.
[Mariachi band playing]
Including the very well-known Maribel
Guardia who was a movie star back in the day.
And today any Mexican will tell you that she’s
super famous for looking way
younger than her actual age
After the party, we were driven back
to the hotel where we spent the night.
And after a great breakfast at El Diezmo Hotel
we went to a nearby ranch where we played some
paddle and swam in the natural thermal waters
of their pool and quickly got very sunburnt
despite applying sunscreen repeatedly. I
swear this Queretaro sun is no joke.
After having a feast at the ranch we then
went back to the hacienda-style property for
day two of the party. When we arrived I was shocked
to find that they had taken the time to completely
change the decorations of the entire party! This
was no small task. Once again, we were fed a tasty
meal and were never left without a drink in our
hand. I swear, the number of times people cheers
in mexico is just a conspiracy to get everyone
drunk. On day two we enjoyed some amazing singing!
And then Andreas Zanetti who is a
comedian and piano playing performer.
[Playing Billy Joel’s “Piano Man”]
[Playing “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen]
[Playing “Soy Celayeño Con Gusto”]
Believe it or not there was
actually a third day to this party
and although we wanted to go back we were just
completely exhausted, totally dead, and did not
have it in us. We went back and slept for basically
the next two days straight. So after all those fun
shenanigans really the only thing i can think
of to do is hit the gym to sweat out all of my
sins. Maybe do a juice cleanse and hibernate for
the next three days. But to start our workout
we always do warm ups. I go on the elliptical. And i usually warm up on the rowing machine. [Maddie singing] Row row row your boat, gently down the gym.
And then after we get nice and sweaty with a warm
up then we can come and do a stretching routine.
I don’t know what more to say
about that other than, you know,
stretching. It’s to help keep your muscles from
getting damaged. Exactly, maintain flexibility, work
out your past life traumas. By the way we’re at our
gym called Seven Days Gold and they have a number
of locations all across Queretaro and also in
Morelia if we ever wanted to go and work out there.
W here we’re at right now is really cool it’s like
kind of on the roof, but it’s open air so we’ve
got a nice breeze coming in and then also you can
look out and see beautiful views of the city. But
importantly, we’re in the shade because i cannot
take any more sun on me, even through a shirt.
It’s so painful to do anything right now with
the sunburn. To have a backpack on, put my purse,
this sports bra underneath here hurts like a pitch because
it’s rubbing against all the skin. Can you see? Oh!
It’s so bad! So bad! And this was with putting
sunscreen on multiple times throughout the day.
So don’t even be like “oh wow you really
should have worn sunscreen don’t you think?”
We did. We weren’t even in the sun that long. It’s just the sun in Queretaro here is so hot at this high
elevation. It was fun though! The time at the pool
was awesome! Yeah it was. The thermal waters and stuff really like
soothed my soul. Well, it is back and bicep
day for us so let’s get this party started.
No, actually, let’s not get any parties started
we did enough partying this week earlier.
Before i do this next exercise
there’s a very important step
Otherwise how are you gonna see my muscles?
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait! What is he doing? You can’t fully see
his muscles, didn’t pull his shirt up.
Yeah this is too light. Okay.
Most important step according to Maddie. [Laughs]
Oh also… Oh yeah my sunburn. You can see this sunburn.
So we did a little bit more free weights to
finish off and then ended with a stretch.
Something that’s different about gyms in Mexico is
that they have trainers on the floor and like you
don’t have to hire a personal trainer but if you
need an exercise program, if you need to be shown
how to do the machines, if you want to make sure
you’re doing your exercises right, things like that.
There’s always trainers on the floor to help you
do those things. And is that everywhere in mexico
or just here at seven days gold? I’m pretty
sure it’s at like any higher end gym. Oh i
didn’t know that was a mexico thing. I thought that
was just something like a perk extra here so maybe
you guys know if that’s all over mexico but that’s
certainly not how it is in the US. I’m pretty sure
yeah, we went to our like rinky-dink uh what
do we call those, they are like ten dollars a month?
Planet fitness. Planet fitness, we used to go to
planet fitness. When we used to go there
i’m pretty sure those employees just stand around
and they’re there to give you pizza once a month.
I also used to go to Lifetime Fitness
and LA Fitness i think it was called
and at all those you can hire a trainer but
there aren’t trainers on the floor like ready
to help you with things. Right, and you’re probably
paying out the wazoo for those. Oh yeah!
Well we were actually going to head home because
after the gym i obviously look like a hot ass mess.
And I would prefer not to go out in public
like this especially given what i’m wearing
is just like gym clothes but the mood struck
for pozole. I looked up a place and we found la
auténtica pozolaeria. Right around the corner from
the gym! Yeah right around the corner and it gets
a 4.7 on google maps which is actually pretty
darn high for… I don’t know, restaurants in Queretaro
for some reason don’t get very high ratings on
google maps people are just big critics here i
guess. But we’re gonna go check it out because it’s
thursday and thursday traditionally is for pozole.
Hello, good afternoon! Hello! I’m excited for some good pozole! Pozole is like chicken soup for the Mexican soul.
[chuckles] I mean, come on, it is. It totally is. Agree with me jordan!
Agree with me or they’re gonna think something’s wrong between us!
I’m ready. I’m ready also. I’ll have the green pozole with chicken, please.
Okay, medium or large? Large, please. Large. And we’d like pork rinds, cream, and avocado please.
Pork rinds, cream, and avocado? Yes please. Just one order of those.
And for me, a large green (pozole) with chicken, please. The same, okay.
To drink, can I offer you something? We have hibiscus water, sodas, limeade… Mineral water? Mineral water? Yes!
Very good. One for me too. Two mineral waters. Thank you. Perfect, I’ll bring them for you right away. Great.
The state of Guerrero trained us to
only go to pozole on Thursdays but
now here in Queretaro you can get it any day
of the week. But we still only go on Thursdays. [Laughs]j
So typically they will bring you the soup, the
pozole, with nothing on it except for, you know
the meat or whatever you ordered, and then you
can add radish, onion, lettuce, lime. One of the
best if not the best part about it, chicharron. So good, so good! It’s so incomplete without pork rind.
It’s so good because it adds like a crunchiness and
some more saltiness and then you could also
dip tostadas in it. Or we also ordered
cream but those are just additional options.
Do you like it? Yes.
It’s good. So i don’t know what all is in
pozole, if you can help me out with this
please do in the comments. But there’s
these big pieces of corn. I forget what
they’re called, do you remember? Maiz, no? I feel like
they have another one. I mean, corn is “maiz” but… I feel like these
big pieces of corn have another word in
pozole. But then i also got some chicken
Did you mention the…
oregano? Oh yeah. I’ll leave you the avocado here. Thanks. You’re welcome.
You can also add oregano. This is something
they typically bring out on the table for you.
And then Maddie ordered avocado
as well. Beautiful plate of avocado.
This is good. Really flavorful. It’s going to be so hard to beat Pozoleria Tia
Felix that we had in Taxco because that was like…
Oh my gosh! I think I died and went to heaven. This
is right up there. The only problem is it’s a
little bit on the toasty side today for Queretaro
for the season, anyway. Compared to
other days. And we were sweating at the gym and i’m
sweating again because it’s a hot hot soup! [Laughs] It’s
a whopping 77 degrees outside right now but it
feels particularly hot in the sun especially
with a sunburn. Wow! Wow! He just throws me under
the bus but i was very careful about saying that
it feels hot compared to the season, for the season,
compared to other days recently. And we just went
to the gym. And this is a hot soup. Get out of here
Jordan. Get out of here with that. I feel like
pozole is a perfect post-mexican party recovery
food. And then on the side we just make a suero and
you’re good to go! I’ll make a suero. Some salt.
If i can get any out. Or a lot of salt! [Laughs]
Okay, and you have the Mexican hangover remedy. That’s in mineral water. Yes, in mineral water.
How’s that salted rim? [Laughs] If you’re coming to Mexico
one problem that you’re probably going to run into
when you get here is you’ll go to look for
your favorite show on netflix and it’s not
going to be there. Because a lot of the content
is location restricted where you have to be in
the US or you have to be in Canada because they
have different licenses for different countries.
Well something you can do to get your favorite
show back is to get a vpn. A vpn allows you to
virtually locate yourself in another place,
for example, i can say i want to be in Miami
or Houston or something like that, and boom
i’m in Houston, and i’m able to access the
us Netflix library again. Our favorite vpn allows
you to not only access US Netflix but 30 Netflix
libraries around the world. And this is the only
major vpn company that i know of that gives you
unlimited devices with just one subscription
so you just buy one subscription and it covers
all your phones, your tv, your ipad, everything. If
you would like to check out our favorite vpn you
can go to tangerinevpn.com, they’re running a sale
right now, it’s 83% off plus three extra months free.
Again that’s tangerinevpn.com. After Pozole I was
like oh my gosh, I’m completely dead, I still really
really need to recover from sleep from monday
and tuesday. I mean two days you wouldn’t think
would make me this tired but apparently they did. But two days of partying and then being out in the sun all day. And a sunburn.
It takes it out of you. So I took a nap,
did some laundry, got all cleaned up.
Now, look at this. Oh hey! We’re ready to
go out the world! Nice black shirt. Oh
yeah, we’re matching. Lovely. [Laughs] It’s like kind
of a couple thing, don’t you think Jordan?
One of our friends here in Queretaro has his own
cosmetics line. He manufactures, produces, markets
his own line of cosmetics. And today they’re
opening, with a partner, the very first store.
The very first physical location called Derma & Beauty so that’s where we are right now.
We were just participating in the
ribbon cutting or we are here to
witness the ribbon cutting of the
grand opening of the story. Okay, and now I’m here with Graciela.
One of the partners of the store. There are 3, right? 3 partners?
That’s right. You, Farid, and your husband? And my husband, yes.
Very good. And this is the first store, right?
It’s the first store in a project with 200 stores coming in the future.
In the first phase, we have a project of 10 stores for this year.
Next year there will be 20 and then we’ll roll out the rest of the 200 stores.
Oh, how great! And why do you want (a store) in Juriquilla in Querétaro?
Well, we decided on Juriquilla for the first store because it’s our territory. We are “Juriquerences”
Oh, “Juriqurenses” I didn’t know that word. [laughs] Oh, no, I just made it up. I love it.
“Juriquiences” Well, I’ll try to teach it and find the word. But, well, it’s our home.
We have a lot of friends here. We know they will support our project and they’re going to help it grow.
Ah, okay. That makes sense. One more question, what clientele do you want for your store?
We have products to pamper everyone, all types of clients including for men, there’s a selection of skin care products.
We have some special makeup services. If it’s your wedding, when you go to get married, you can come to us to plan
the service to come do makeup for your all your guests. We are covering many services and taking care of all ages.
Including boys and girls, men and women. That’s great! And you have a lot of variety in the store too! There’s a lot! That’s right.
And we’ll continue looking for things in the market and attractive things to bring people in. Today in Juriquilla, and later, in all of Mexico.
Wow! Well, I don’t have much makeup, but I need to buy everything in the store. [laughs] Exactly!
We’ll do a before and after with Maddie with a makeover so you can see the things we can do!
And sorry about the interruption, it’s that they brought us more tequila. [Laughs]
That’s what you said “ay no!” That’s the reason why they’re here. For the tequila. [Laughs]
We’ve already drank too much this week! It’s the week of tequila for you guys! [Laughter]
Very well. Thank you so much, Graciela! And thank you both!
I’m using my finger like I said but you can use a sponge.
Or you can use a brush.
Any brush for this. Okay. Yeah, that looks really nice! It’s natural, I love it!
So they have a makeup artist here today and she
was helping me pick out a concealer – Moira and
so i’m going to get this one. It’s 400 pesos
and it looks really nice! Blends in super well.
Hi Farid, how are you? Welcome, my friend! Tell me about your brand.
The brand is 25 years old and it’s popular in the market. Those sold here are of high quality at a very affordable price.
Here is one of the things we sell the most, this brand.
And KJ? KJ. There are various brands, one is called KJ. It’s very well known. Very well known.
The balloons. “Me too! Me too in the video!” And this is “Exactico”.
This is a very big seller. When we had the idea to open a store.
We wanted it to have the image and feel of Sephora. And “prestige” brands.
And where you can find Patrick Starr, Bobbi Brown, Mac, and all those.
We decided we wanted a lot of alternative brands. New brands, that are very good, but they don’t have much marketing.
Those that are recommended by word of mouth.
Where do you sell these? That, my brand, there are many ways of selling it.
Those that have a thousand places to sell it. For example, Farmacias Del Ahorro. Okay.
And then there are those that sell wholesale who sell it to various stores.
Or to people who will then resell it. Is it only (sold) in Mexico? And Colombia, Ecuador, and Costa Rica.
Where do you manufacture them? Querétaro. Queretaro.
Well, I hope you have a lot of success. Thanks a lot for showing us. Thanks a million! Thanks a million!
I think that was really cool that we got to
participate in that grand opening. I’ve been
to a number of them in the US, but i think that was
actually my first that i’ve ever been to in mexico.
So that was really awesome. And it’s cool that
it’s a couple of our friends doing it. Yeah!
And now we’re headed probably the
coolest street… Where am i going here?
Um okay i think i’m going this way. Hang on. What’s happening on the road is very confusing.
Okay this doesn’t look too confusing but it was
confusing before. Okay, what are you doing? Oh my.
We are going to what might be the most awesome
street food in mexico. I mean, maybe in mexico,
but I meant in Queretaro. [Laughs] And i’ll give you
a hint. It’s my favorite street food but this
might be my favorite of this street food. So we’ll
just we’ll just get there and show you what it is.
So we’re pulling up here and we parked, and Jordan
curb checks. And i’m like ah Jordan! He’s like
“don’t worry (no te preocupes)” I’m like you want to know what’s “no te preocupes”? What his rims look like on his car
back in Phoenix. They were scraped up
all over the place. Like okay, your rims were “no
te preocupes” I’m worrying about my car! The only
reason why my rims were ever scraped up Maddie
was because my rims stuck out further than
my wheels whereas on most cars the wheels
stick out further. So anytime you go up
against anything in that car it’d scrape them.
I think the reason that your rims
look like that is because you had
no spatial awareness as to where
your wheels and the curbs were!
But we have arrived. We are outside of, or i think
i believe it’s kind of Zona Centro? Is that
right? We’re in Zona Centro. Zona Centro, okay. Let’s go. So
after that little spat i feel like is the perfect
time to bring up this topic. Yes, we are still
broken up but as we said in our breakup video
we are good friends and we want to continue
making videos together when we can. When we
feel like we’re not going to bite each other’s
heads off or something. We’re not in a bad mood.
But as we mentioned in that video the reason
we broke up is because one of us wants kids
and the other one doesn’t. The rest of our
relationship or the rest of our friendship
was virtually perfect i would say as far as a
relationship could be. So yes that was not a ploy
to get more views, we are actually broken up. And you say that because we’ve gotten quite a
few comments to that extent. Yeah we’ve gotten a lot of comments. “Was this
just ploy to get more views?” Like are you kidding me? Get the hell out of here?
“Looks like your channel is going downhill,
you must have done this as a publicity stunt.”
it it pains me that anyone would
think that i feel like we are…
We try to be as honest as possible no matter what,
even if it’s a tough subject. Like me getting an
explant or the breakup. So no, this was nothing of
the sort. Oh we’re almost here! So right now we just
got in line and we’re in a line of about 20 people
and we’ve been here before and so far this seems
normal. But this is actually a sign all across
Mexico that you know it’s going to be a great place
if all the locals are there, if there’s a long
line, or all the tables are filled up. And that
is the case here. The line is building up behind us. Okay so i’m going to reveal this esquites place!
It’s esquites but it has all these flavors
you can get chipotle with bacon, you can get
i forget all these… I’m forgetting
all these in English. Shrimp with guajillo. Garlic. You
can get what i’m gonna get bone marrow, “tuétano”. On this side where you order you can also add
additional salsas, additional toppings, but they
put most of your typical stuff like mayo, cheese,
all of their varieties of salsa that they have.
Oh boy! This is like the disneyland of esquites
Hello, good afternoon! I’d like a large with half garlic and half bone marrow please.
Mayonnaise and cheese? Yes, just a little mayo, please. Should I put mayo and queso in the middle or just on top?
In the middle, please. Shall I add a sauce? Yes, “traditional” please.
Oh! It’s almost ready! Anything else? Thank you! You’re welcome.
A large cup of esquites with bone marrow, please. All bone marrow? Yes, please.
The same with mayonnaise and cheese? With everything, yes.
so this is something you normally don’t see at
esquites places either. Along with all the
flavors, you can choose whatever toppings you
want, and just put them on after you get your
esquites. And they also put a piece of elote on
top of esquites. So you get a little hybrid experience. [Laughs]
Oh, you got a runner! [Laughs]
There’s hardly any room for more on there! Perfect! You think you got enough on there, Jordan? [Laughs]
How much? 80 please. Look at all of this!!
We both got this, tuétano. But at
first this tuétano, bone marrow, i think before
coming to mexico i would have thought that
this was like a gross flavor to get. A flavor?
A gross like… i don’t know… Bone marrow sounds
very exotic but now i’m like oh yeah i have
tongue tacos and bone marrow esquites what next?
Brain? Eyeball? Yeah bring it on! Sort of, maybe.
No don’t bring it on. I don’t know. Eyeball
no. You want some brain though? Sesos. Tacos de sesos. I’m not there yet. I don’t know, maybe?
I have not seen a more popular street food place
than this in queretaro. Well, I don’t know, as
far as esquites, are there ever lines like this? Actually the only one that i remember that was
kind of like this was in tequisquiapan in jalisco. It’s now a pueblo mágico. Tequisquiapan isn’t it in jalisco. Oh no
no what am i thinking of? Tlaquepaque! sorry it’s another long “T” name. Tlaquepaque sorry.
Tequisquiapan is a pueblo mágico. But Tlaquepaque in jalisco. Those were some
good esquites! I think that’s where my love of
esquites was actually born! It actually was born there but they did not have all these flavors
like they do here. No oh my gosh. But here’s the
problem it’s so… It’s like overflowing
they don’t skimp on these esquites or
the cheese. There’s mayonnaise and lime in there.
So it’s good they put a bag because as you can see
it’s like all the juices and stuff are dripping
out of here. This is not really an eat-in-the-car
kind of food wouldn’t you say Jordan?
[laughs] No te preocupes, we can eat it in the car!
So we each got a large. They were 40 pesos
a piece. This is very weird we’re just
kneeling on the sidewalk but we don’t
have enough hands to hold the camera
and eat so mmm!! We’re setting
you on a little ledge here.
Best two dollars I ever spent. [Laughter] Well, if you’re
eating breakfast now, lunch, dinner, whatever it is… Provechito!!
[Laughs] Provecho! Or cheers! Salud! [Laughs]
so we parked right here about a
block away from that esquites joint
and i have to say if i lived
right here i’d be so fat right now
on the screen here is a playlist of all the videos
that we’ve made here in Querétaro and i really
love that we can have days like this and i
hope that we can release more videos like
this showing like daily life. So please subscribe
to our channel to see those and one more thing…
Gong that bell! So you get notified the next time
we release a new video on saturday
morning and we will see you there.
