New Puerto Vallarta Hamburger Mary's Shutters

After only nine months, Hamburger Mary's in PuertoVallarta has shuttered. The iconic name brand was home to American cuisine and drag entertainment.

The closure was confirmed by co-owner Susan McKenna to O&APV, a social news publication located in Puerto Vallarta.

McKenna stated that there might be a chance the business could find a new home, but that's not for certain. However, on the restaurant's official Facebook page, they seem more optimistic:

"Hamburger Mary's PVR is moving! We will provide you with more details about our new location soon! STAY TUNED :)"

Hamburger Mary's is an entertainment staple in the drag community. The first venue opened in San Francisco's SoHo district in 1972 and from there has reached 16 other locations in America. Puerta Vallarta was its only international venue.

Located at Basilio Badillo 283 in Zona Romantica, the tri-level restaurant and bar replaced the Original Roberto's. Mary's Puerto Vallarta grand opening happened on April 10, 2021 with Mizz Peaches as the official hostess.

As with most Mary's venues, the location offered nightly drag shows, drink specials and a Sunday brunch.

Each Hamburger Mary's location is locally owned and operated.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
