Before we ever moved to Mexico and bought the Luna Blue Hotel, we made a list one night over several bottles of wine, People Who Can Stay for Free. They were people who inspired us, who we admired, who turned us on or were our personal heroes.
The list has changed somewhat over the years. Some of the people on it sadly passed away. Others were dropped for personal reasons. (Sorry, but you just don’t steal Sandra Bullock’s husband. Enough said. LOL) And, we have added new people in the years since. Today we’d like to add a couple more.
We are addicted to the fictional televised exploits of a biker gang known as the the Sons of Anarchy. Sons of Anarchy’s fourth season premiere starts September 6, and to celebrate, we are adding two people from that show to our People Who Can Stay for Free list:
The first is Kurt Sutter, the outspoken take-no-crap creator/writer/producer of the series (who also has a small acting part). Not only has he made one of the best shows on television, but his pain-in-the-ass, in-your-face media persona makes us want to invite him to dinner and open a couple bottles of tequila.
Second is his real life wife Katey Sagal, who plays Gemma Teller, the matriarch of the biker gang. Only Katey Sagal could play the baddest, sexiest, take-no-prisoners, leather clad biker chick babe on TV and also make her loyal, committed, loving and occasionally tender. Whether she loves you or hates you, you’re in for a wild ride.
We love this show and think it has the best writing/directing/acting on television since Deadwood went off the air. If you haven’t seen it, check it out.
Actually, Cheri wanted to add several of the hot guys from the show to our Stay for Free List, but Tony said we had to draw the line somewhere.
So, Katey and Kurt, if you’re ever in Playa del Carmen, the Luna Blue is yours for free.
