Meet Your Neighbor: Mike Guzman

Christine Stanley/Sierra Sun

Bartender/manager of El Toro Bravo

Near the Ponderosa Golf Course

Snowmobiling. I just bought a Polaris 700 Dragon. Its bitchin. Im going to ride … it in Jackson Meadows and Hope Valley. We also race snowmobiles all over the whole family is going to Yellowstone this year.

Weve been here for 20 years. Its family owned and operated and we tend to cater to the locals because tourists will come and go. Our philosophy is that the best advertising is word of mouth.

Carnitas and a Cadillac margarita. Its an old family recipe and will be the best carnitas youve ever had. That or the prawns Martin. Theyre made with fresh jalepenos and green onions very spicy but theyre incredible. Those are our signature items.

It was fun. We got married last week at the outlook by the Old Highway 40 bridge at sunrise. There were, like, 50 people there at 7 a.m. in their jammies it was a pajama wedding!

Hahahah!!! All the decent rafts were sold out, so I went to Tri-City Surplus in Sparks and bought a Navy Seals reconnaissance raft. I ended up spending, like, $900 on a three-man raft, but its very stealth.

Yea, Thursdays right here at El Toro Bravo its Hornitos night.The Suns Christine Stanley-interviewed Guzman for Meet Your Neighbor. Please send suggestions for Meet Your Neighbor to, subject Meet Your Neighbor.
