TNB: R.I.P. Homero Gutierrez Villarreal: The Padrino of El Potrero
There was something exceptional about Homero. You could see it right away. He was handsome, with that unique mixture of unbridled hospitality and wholesome desire to bond that typifies the people of northern Mexico. But there was also something dignified, something a little melancholy, about him, too. Even during stomp-down 3 a.m. stuffed-jalapeno-eating contests he retained a certain quiet distance—listening and observing.
