former king of the Cuban sandwich

On a warm morning in March, trash blows across a sidewalk in east Little Havana as a bus screeches to a halt in front of an empty restaurant. Its windows are too dark and dusty to see inside, but a banner near the roof offers signs of life: "Coming Soon: Ral Galindo’s Original Latin American." An old man slowly saunters through the crowd boarding the bus and up to the store. As he pushes open the door, Ral Galindo breaks into song.

"Yo no s nada," belts out the 75 year old restaurateur, stylishly outfitted in a trim beard, hipsterish Ray Ban glasses, plaid shirt, and tie. A book of Cuban poetry is tucked under his arm. "Yo llegu ahora mismo. Si algo pas, yo no estaba all." Galindo has good reason to sing: After half a decade of penury, he’s finally back in business.

For more than 30 years, Galindo was king of the Cuban sandwich. Heaping stacks of ham, pork, and Swiss cheese brought him fame and fortune. He opened nearly a dozen eateries around Miami that at their peak raked in more $12 million a year. And his best known joint, Latin American Cafeteria on 29th Avenue and Coral Way, became the symbolic heart of el exilio, a hub of Cuban politics where deals were struck.

"Everybody went there," remembers top chef and Miami native Douglas Rodriguez. "It was a show. You’d walk in and hear those guys tapping their blades on the cutting boards," he says. "They were sandwich maestros."

Like all empires, however, Galindo’s eventually came crashing down. Over the past decade, he has lost everything to two messy divorces, scores of lawsuits, and a pair of hurricanes. The Coral Way restaurant is now an empty lot. Instead, dozens of what Galindo calls "impostors" have sprung up around town, using variations of his restaurant’s name and sandwiches. But with younger business partners and a new location at SW First Street and 12th Avenue set to open this summer, Galindo is aiming for his old throne.

"The original Latin American is dead and buried," Galindo admits. "Now we have to dig it up with a pick and shovel and resurrect it."

But not everyone is wishing him well. His rivals fear he will win back business, and at least one ex wife
cheap ray bans thinks the sweet talking old Cuban still owes her money.

"It’s a good thing that he’s opening another restaurant," says Judith Espinosa. "At least my attorneys will have somewhere to go now."

Galindo was born near Havana in 1936, later moving to the capital to run his family’s sandwich shop. But the young entrepreneur felt stifled by Castro’s communist state, and he fled to Chicago at age 30. He worked nights in a Zenith TV set factory but indulged his true passion by bringing massive cubanos to work with him every evening, selling some and giving the rest away. "Some people fall in love with a woman," Galindo recalls. "I fell in love with sandwiches."

He moved to Miami in 1970 and found work as a cook at a Calle Ocho caf. But the owners didn’t know a thing about sandwiches, he says. "They were making them with boogers," he laughs.
cheap ray ban outlet "It was disgusting."

Four years later, Galindo and his older brother, Luis, started Latin American Cafeteria on Coral Way. Unlike other joints, they served sandwiches made with fresh ingredients right in front of the customers. In fact, it was from behind the massive wooden chopping block that Galindo met his first wife, Madelaine Ferro, when the 17 year old strolled into the restaurant looking for a job.

Business boomed as customers flocked to Latin American’s meaty sandwiches. But Galindo still insisted on personally overseeing his ever expanding sandwich empire. He took to sleeping at his restaurants rather than heading home to his young wife and two kids.

His obsession finally cost him his first marriage. When he tried to expand the spot on Coral Way, Ferro put her foot down. They argued about his plan to buy a neighboring building for almost $2 million, and Galindo moved out. Ferro filed for divorce in 1990, eventually winding up with their mansion in Coral Gables, two restaurants, several other properties, and $24,000 in monthly alimony.

"It was my fault," Galindo admits. "I was like a wandering ship captain, only instead of navigating the seas, I was navigating between all those restaurants."

But Galindo had business problems as well. His early success bred contempt among his competitors. Throughout the ’80s and early ’90s, dozens of Cuban sandwich joints popped up around Miami, often using the Latin American name and lettering. In 1993 alone, Galindo sued eight copycat restaurants, demanding they change their names. The tactic rarely worked. Galindo even fell out with his brother after cutting him out of the Coral Way restaurant. Luis responded by suing Ral and opening two of his own sandwich shops before dying in 1996.

Just when his first divorce was finally settled in 2000, Galindo was watching a mystery on TV one night when he spied a woman half his age enter his restaurant. When he asked her what she wished to do in life, Judith Espinosa said she wanted nothing more than to be a housewife.

"I didn’t see her as
discount ray bans a woman, really, but as someone who could help me," Galindo recalls. They were married months later, but Galindo filed for divorce after less than a year. He now says he was betrayed by a close friend who set him up with Espinosa, only to have her suck him dry.

"She was totally in it for the money," Galindo says. "It was a disaster. She tried to control me completely. When I had a nervous breakdown and went to the hospital, she tried to take over my business by firing people and taking
replica ray ban sunglasses cash out of the registers."

During the 2002 divorce proceedings, Galindo claimed Espinosa routinely took thousands of dollars out of his three restaurants. She denied it, countering that she spent her own money trying to salvage the businesses and that Galindo dropped the divorce.Articles Connexes:

If he doesn resign by tomorrow, we will step up our actions, such as by occupying several important government buildings, he said, adding that demonstrators would not interfere with essential government agencies such as hospitals and social welfare offices.Chan Kin man, another protest leader, said the demonstrations will continue as long as the Hong Kong government fails to give a satisfactory response to their demands.hope people will understand why the action keeps on escalating.

Piggyback Entrepreneurship

Allow me to make you a proposal:

Please believe me when I tell you that I have
discount ray bans invented a new shampoo that is made of sawdust. The finest, freshest, woodiest sawdust you can find. It’s so great that once you use it, you will never use anything again. The sawdust in my shampoo cleans out all the dirt and grime in your hair and leaves your head smelling like freshly polished furniture! It’s so unique that I am considering filing a patent for it.

I understand that you operate the world’s largest retail operation, present in over one hundred countries. I want you to stock my sawdust shampoo ‘Saw Saw Sha Poo’ !!

Hey, before you get excited, let me lay down my conditions:

I will not be exclusive to you.

You will let me price my product the way I want. Sometimes my product will be free; sometimes priced at 1 dollar; sometimes at 2 dollars; all depending on my mood, markets and madness.

You will have to serve every single customer who demands my shampoo; delivery time being ‘within a few minutes’.

You will send me a monthly statement of accounts and will settle my dues in 30
cheap ray ban outlet days by the calendar.

Commission? You want commissions? Hmmm Maybe a 30% all inclusive of shipping, stocking, delivering, tracking and accounting. Of course, if I sell for free, you get nothing and I get to keep all the branding and goodwill.

Now tell me, if you were this giant retailer (think Walmart), and a nincompoop like me appeared at your door with this sawdust of a proposal, what would you do? Break your chair on my head to make me experience what ‘sawdust shampoo’ actually feels like?

I guess if you are clued in, you will have guessed by now that while Walmart may shoo me away, if I make a ‘sawdust shampoo’ app (that does whatever I claim it does), then I can go with this ridiculous proposal and all its terms to Google, Apple and Amazon and they will gladly accept me as I am. Unconditionally. Without any obligations. Like a mother accepting her child.

Dear reader, welcome to the world of piggyback entrepreneurship. A ride so incredible, that once you have gotten on, you will never want to get off.

And why am I so excited about this concept that may already seem a bit stale and strange to you?

It’s because very few of us (entrepreneurs included) really think of the magnanimity of the opportunity that Piggyback entrepreneurship offers.

1. No Piggy? No success. No success? No Piggy!

Just a few years ago, apps like Instagram, WhatsApp, Twitter and Angry Birds would have been impossible to launch.

If you think hard, who would have been able to support the servers, bandwidth, billing, collection and reconciliation involved of millions of customers, most of them paying nothing or at the most a couple of dollars? Apple, Google and the rest solved that case for the guys mentioned above.

Coming to my central point:

During the late 90′s to late 2000 (a decade), the mobile phone (plus what went on it) was dominated by telecom operators. Tell me, which app or service launched during that period, do you remember, that made your life interesting, productive or pure fun?

There were no ‘apps’ launched, because the inward looking, introverted telecoms did not believe in piggyback entrepreneurs! They thought of entrepreneurs who brought them ‘saw saw sha poo’ proposals as ridiculous and shooed them away.

Today, if you consider the economics of most of these telecoms, you will be moved to tears. They are highly leveraged (under debt) and constantly under the threat of going bust. This is my explanation of ‘No Success, No Piggy’ the reverse of ‘No Piggy, No Success’!

Takeaway Piggyback entrepreneurs help themselves and also the backs they ride on; so don’t be shy and ask for the free ride.

2. If you ride someone’s back, make sure you scrub it!

Ever since I remember traveling, I have detested hotel toiletries. I have major problems in hotel bathrooms and can give a lady a run for her money as far as ‘nakhras’ go! Either the soap smells like a stale rose or the shampoo feels too thin (remember, I am into sawdust shampoos!) or the conditioner feels like it’s knotting my hair up like a Baba from the Himalayas.

To solve this problem I always lug my toiletries around, adding a few more kilos to my already bulky bags.

All this changed when I stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel in Singapore. I still remember walking into the
cheap ray bans shower and staring at a set of toiletries by a brand that I had never heard of before called ‘L’Occitane’. I reluctantly tried out the pale yellow shampoo and was instantly transformed. This was undoubtedly one of the best products I had ever used!

Since that memorable trip, I have bought thousands of rupees worth of L’Occitane goodies from their stores all over the world. The simple act of sampling their goods in the Four Seasons’ bathroom made me their customer forever. In fact, I rarely stay at Four Seasons hotels (can’t afford them) but always buy L’Occitane goodies!

This is a classic example of Piggyback Entrepreneurship. Most hotels don’t want to spend ridiculous amounts of money on toiletries and always compromise. On the other hand, great brands like L’Occitane find it difficult or expensive to find potential customers in large numbers at single places and hence partner with hotels to power up their toilets!

Takeaway: Piggyback riding in business can be at equal or unequal terms
fake ray bans but once given a chance, be sure to offer your very best. You just might enjoy a better payoff than your host!Articles Connexes:

Politicians walk

No, the publishing magnate and radio broadcaster isn’t buying them all, it’s her excited guests who will do the honours when they attend Nora’s annual Women of the Year awards at the Four Seasons next Saturday.

It’s always one of the best nights of the year, and preparations this weekend are quite something.

The second annual Oireachtas Charity Show takes place in the Shelbourne Hotel on November
Michael Kors discounts 12, and stylist Marietta Doran has been very persuasive in encouraging politicos
wholesale Michael Kors handbags outlet "to walk", as they say in fashion parlance.

When Deputy Nicky McFadden was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease in 2012,
Michael Kors handbag outlet her Oireachtas friend and colleague
replica Michael Kors handbags Jimmy Deenihan asked Doran to organise a fashion show to generate funds for Motor Neuron Disease research. More than 20,000 was raised last year, and this year’s event, sponsored by Newstalk, hopes to bring in even more.

Fine Gael’s Simon Coveney, Richard Bruton and Deenihan have all signed up for catwalk duties along with Dublin South East posterboy Eoghan

Of course,
replica Michael Kors handbags no Oireachtas fashion event could take place without blonde bombshell Mary Mitchell O’Connor, for whom style is a badge
fake Michael kors handbags outlet of honour, and jokes about her driving are greeted with the widest smile.Articles Connexes:

It’s "I love you" day!

Every February the 14th, throughout the globe, couples profess their love to each other. manners.

If you’re running behind, call don’t text. When you apologize, your date will hear the sincerity in your voice and together you can figure out the new meeting time.

Ask before being gallant.

Most women appreciate gallantry, but there could be some exceptions. When in doubt, preface your courteous gesture with: "May I.?"

Yes, ladies first is the societal norm for
Michael Kors outlet a date.

After opening the door to the car, before closing it, make sure to look for a hanging
fake Michael kors handbags outlet skirt, belt, or purse strap on the edge of the car.

At a door crossing, wait for the
wholesale Michael Kors handbags outlet people exiting to come out first. You will then let your date go through.

Help to remove or put on a coat is always appreciated. Especially when bundled up for Canadian winters.

If walking on the sidewalk, stand street side by your date to protect her from slush splashing cars.

Offer your arm for
cheap Michael Kors slippery side streets.

Going downstairs? Precede your date, to protect her in case of a fall. Going upstairs? Step behind her to catch her if she slips.

Pull your date’s chair and gently slide her into her seat. Ladies, take control of your chair. Do not trust him ; ). You are the driver of the chair. He is simply assisting you.

Give your date the best view of the restaurant or of
Michael Kors handbags outlet the outside scenery.

You could be wearing Armani and smelling of Gucci with a freshly shaved lumberjack beard, but the "Wow, you look great!" could quickly be replaced with
michael kors handbags outlet "Geez, where did he learn to eat?".

Need a Dining Etiquette 101 lesson? Read this previous blog post.

This is also true for business meals and activities. Unless you decided to split the bill, be prepared to pick up your part of the tab. If you are not sure and your date
Michael Kors discounts doesn’t offer to pay, be proactive and say ‘let’s "go Dutch".

Michael Kors outlet join me for dinner?".

No texting, tweeting, tagging or telephoning during your date.

oakley sunglasses discount Durable Power Of Attorney

The Durable Power of Attorney is an important legal document. Everyone over the age of 18 should have one.

A "Power of Attorney" is a legal document in which one person gives another person the power to act for him, including the
fake oakleys power to sign papers for him. The person who is giving the power is called the "principal." The person who will get the power is referred to as the "Attorney in Fact" or "agent." "Attorney in Fact" doesn’t mean the person who is getting the power has to be a lawyer. Any adult such as your husband, wife, son or daughter, brother or sister, can be your Attorney in Fact. Broad powers are given to the Attorney in Fact in a "General Power of Attorney". This includes powers to sign checks and contracts, buy and sell real estate, manage bank accounts, and generally do anything
oakley sunglasses discount the principal can do. A "Special Power of Attorney" gives the power to do only one or more specific things, such as the power to buy or sell a certain piece of real estate for the principal.

A "Durable" Power of Attorney is one which will continue to work even if the principal becomes disabled or incapacitated (unable to handle his own financial affairs). To be "durable," a Power of Attorney must contain these words: "This power of attorney shall not be affected by the disability of the principal." A "Springing" Power of Attorney is one which will start to work only when the principal becomes incapacitated.

Most Powers of Attorney which people have are Durable General Powers of Attorney. That is, they give broad powers to
fake oakley wholesale do anything, they can be used while the principal is still healthy, and they can be used even if the principal becomes disabled or incapacitated. However, you cannot tell by the title. Some Durable General Powers of Attorney are called "Durable Power of Attorney." Others are called "General Power of Attorney." Still others are called "Power of Attorney." You have to read the actual words of the document to find out whether a Power of Attorney is "general" or "special", "durable" or not, and "springing" or not.

A Durable Power of Attorney is an important part of every estate plan. If a person becomes incapacitated, the Attorney in Fact can
cheap oakley sunglasses wholesale withdraw money from accounts to pay bills for the principal, open
fake oakleys cheap and close bank accounts, sell stocks or mutual fund shares, sell or rent out real estate, and do whatever else is necessary to handle the financial affairs of the principal. If a person has any assets in his or her own name and does not have a Durable Power of Attorney, there will be a problem if that person becomes incapacitated. The family members will not be able to withdraw money or pay bills for the incapacitated person. A family member will have to retain a lawyer, appear in court, and petition the court to assign a "conservator" of the incapacitated person’s property. (The conservator used to be called a "guardian.") After the court officially appoints someone to be the conservator, the appointed conservator will be able to withdraw money, pay bills, and handle other financial matters for the incapacitated person.
fake oakley sunglasses cheap However, the court will order the conservator to keep careful records of every penny that comes to the incapacitated person and every penny that is spent for the incapacitated person. The conservator will have to go back to court every year, or as often as the court orders. Each time the conservator goes back to court, the conservator will have to provide an accounting of all the money that came in and went out since the last accounting. There will be more attorneys fees and costs each time the conservator goes back to court. A good Durable Power of Attorney will easily avoid the
fake cheap oakleys expense and hassle of a conservatorship, and allow the Attorney in Fact to handle the pricipal’s finances without court supervision, legal fees of an attorney, and having to provide exact accounting.

Does Kevin Costner have the answer

Personally, I think it pretty sad that a private citizen (albeit a private citizen with a vast amount of money) decided to work on a fix for future oil spills after Exxon Valdez while our own government didn
cheap oakley sunglasses bother because they believed that there would never be another catastrophic spill. I guess that shows us who the smart one is, doesn it? Actor Kevin Costner and his scientist brother, Dan,have been working on a machine to separate oil from water since 1989 and have spent more than 20 million dollars doing so. Today, Costner just may be the saving grace for everyone effected
fake oakleys by the disastrous BP spill in the Gulf. According to a June 9 article in theNew York Daily News, Costner vacuum like machines could separate oil from sea water and provide a little bit of help to the oil soaked Gulf states and to themillions of birds and sea creatures being sickened or killed offby the toxic sludge.

So, the question is : Why won the government invest in Costner and his firm Ocean Therapy Solutions? Costner said that BP is already interested in getting some of the machines to help cleanup, but the government isn Time is of the essence right now and the government should pony up whatever amount it is that Costner is asking because so far, the solutions haven
oakleys sunglasses been working. Maybe, just maybe, Costner machines will work and the onslaught of oil will be lessened. Even though the machines can stop the spill, they can at least take some of the oil off of the surface. Why not try it? Is our government really that cheap? I know we
wholesale cheap oakleys in debt (to the amount of 1.5 trillion) but we spent our money on less useful things in the past. When people are losing hope and one person is putting himself out there with machines he has worked on for 20 years,
wholesale oakleys I take a chance if I was President Obama. Otherwise, I fear, there may never, ever be a solution. I assuming that thegovernment and BP want this messfixed as soon as possible, and while there is no gurantee thatthis machine
fake oakleys will work completely, at this point anything is worth a try. I, for one, am completely disgusted by our government weak
oakley sunglasses replica efforts to fix this and by BP greed and complete ignorance. Pretty soon, people are going to start getting out and rioting and I don think Obama wants something like that to mar his Presidency.Articles Connexes:

American Pharoah captures U

In winning a seventh straight race, American Pharoah became the 12th horse and first since Affirmed in 1978 to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes.

As he crossed the finish line, jockey Victor Espinoza pumped his fist as the crowd of 90,000 at sold out Belmont Park roared.

Espinoza, who failed twice before to win the Triple Crown by losing the Belmont Stakes, did not have to wait long before knowing the third time
cheap oakleys would be the charm.

"I’m telling you at the first turn, that was the best feeling I ever had," he said. "The way he runs and stretches
fake cheap oakley sunglasses legs, and the way he hits the ground, it doesn’t feel like you’re going that fast. It feels like he’s in slow motion."

Wood Memorial winner Frosted finished second, 5 1/2 lengths behind American Pharoah, while Keen Ice grabbed the show spot.

The victory secured American Pharoah trainer Bob Baffert’s first Triple Crown after the Hall of Famer was denied three previous times at the Belmont Stakes,
cheap wholesale oakley sunglasses with Silver Charm in 1997, Real Quiet in 1998 and War Emblem in 2002.

"I was prepared for somebody coming (in the stretch) because I’ve gone through this
oakleys sunglasses so many times," said Baffert. But, he added, at the eighth pole: "I knew he was going to do it."

"All I did was take in the crowd," he said. "The crowd was thundering. I was just enjoying the call and the crowd, the noise."

American Pharoah, the muscular son of 2009 Kentucky Derby runner up Pioneerof the Nile, now has seven victories in eight career starts.

The winning time of 2:26.65 for a mile and a half over a fast track was well off the record of 2:24 set in 1973 by Triple Crown winner Secretariat.

American Pharoah held a two length lead over Frosted at the top of the stretch before widening it out and winning easily.

"It’s exciting because we have not seen this for so long," Frosted jockey Joel Rosario said. "The winner really looked brilliant."

Prior to American Pharoah’s
fake oakleys cheap victory in the eight horse field on Saturday, 13 horses since Affirmed’s 1978 Triple Crown had triumphed in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness but failed to win the Belmont, the longest and most demanding of the three races.

"I wasn’t as nervous as I usually am before these because I really felt I had the horse," said Baffert. "When I saddled him I could tell. I told Victor in the paddock, ‘Dude, he is ready, ride him
cheap fake oakleys with confidence.’ And he did."

American Pharoah won the May 2 Derby by a length and two weeks later claimed the Preakness Stakes by a jaw dropping seven lengths in a driving rainstorm.

He was the only horse to run
oakleys sunglasses in all three of the Triple Crown races this
replica oakleys year. The bay colt’s owner, Ahmed Zayat, said he would like to keep the sport’s newest rock star on the track through the end of the year.

Zayat has already sold American Pharoah’s breeding rights.

"We would like to enjoy him as long as we can," he said. "I personally made a promise to my family and to the fans we need to enjoy our stars and race them as long as we possibly could."Articles Connexes:
