The head beside me was I felt, a badly done Bela Lugosi head for my dracula statue that I had redone by another artist.  This is the first not so good head.

Your right! That head looks nothing like Bela.I hope you didn't pay the artist who did it to much money?

I gotta say I love that Bela head.  No, it's not technically a good likeness, but the campy-caricature style of it is really cool.

I'm with Andy on this one, I like the Bela head. NO it's not some great likeness, but it's got a zany Mardi Gras cartoonishness to it. There is a place for 'wacky', don't you think?

I think he is in Saltillo.

I have been wanting to visit Mexico, and a Monster Cafe would be a perfect place to start. Maybe one day I'll be able to make it down there.

Rough translation.........

MONSTER CAFÉ Nombre: Matthew Quintom Green Matthew, originario de Atlanta, Georgia, comenta que encontró en el centro de la localidad la casa ideal para el proyecto que tenía desde hace varios años atrás, 100 por ciento creado por él. “Es un café restaurante con venta de aperitivos, pero lo principal es que es un museo cinematográfico, con un ambiente 100 por ciento familiar en un horario adaptable”, comenta. La decisión que influyó en él para establecerse e invertir en Saltillo, se debe a que después de estudiar varios lugares para llevar a cabo su proyecto, se dio cuenta que éste era el lugar ideal, además que en la Secretaría de Economía de Estados Unidos existe un boletín informativo que dice que de 63 ciudades dentro de la República Mexicana, Saltillo es la ciudad número 1 para tener un negocio con una economía próspera. Asegura que el proyecto que tiene con el Monster Café, se debe a que es un tema que toca a todo el mundo, refiriéndose a que de alguna o de otra manera todos saben de películas, así que es el tema central de dicho lugar. Los muros pintados de los pósters de las películas de terror de los años 30, 40 y 50, dan la bienvenida a los visitantes que quieren pasar un momento lleno de terror y al mismo tiempo disfrutando del menú que se ofrece. “Con el pasar de los años ha cambiado la idea inicial del terror, las películas universales clásicas tienen un tema cómico, se veían fantasmas o monstruos y la gente se reía y no se asustaba, en cambio ahora es sangre y violencia”, comenta Matthew. Con respecto al trabajo y remodelación, fueron 1 año y 6 meses en donde artistas saltillenses fueron los que pintaron los murales, porque lo que pretende es generar fuentes de trabajo. Uno de sus planes a futuro es hacer el segundo nivel que es la terraza, para que turistas tanto nacionales como extranjeros visiten el lugar lleno de terror y de música. Este empresario le quiere dar un consejo a las personas que algún día desearían abrir su propio negocio: “Que no tengan miedo, que lo hagan y luchen por su sueño”, finalizó.

COFFEE MONSTER

Name: Matthew Green Quintom

Matthew, a native of Atlanta, Georgia, says he found in the center of the town house ideal for the project that was several years ago, 100 percent set up by him.

"It's a restaurant with sales of snacks, but the main thing is that it is a film museum, with a 100 percent family at a time adaptable," he says.

The decision that influenced him to settle and invest in Saltillo, is that after studying various places to carry out his project, he realized that this was the ideal place, in addition to the Ministry of Economy of the United States there a newsletter that said that 63 cities within Mexico, Saltillo is the number 1 city for a business with a prosperous economy.

Ensures that the project has with the Monster Café, is because it is an issue that touches everyone, referring to that somehow or other we all know from movies, so it is the central theme of that place.

The walls painted posters of the horror films of the 30s, 40 and 50, welcoming visitors who want to spend a time of terror, while enjoying the menu on offer.

"Over the years has changed the idea of terror, the films have a universal classic comic, were ghosts or monsters, and people laughed and were not frightened, however now it is blood and violence," says Matthew .

With respect to work and remodeling, were 1 year and 6 months where saltillenses were artists who painted the murals, because it aims to generate jobs. One of its future plans is to make the second level is the terrace, for both domestic and foreign tourists visit the place of horror and music.

This employer wants to give advice to people who would like to someday open her own business: "Do not be afraid to do so and fight for his dream ended.
We're all here because we're not all there.
