Let there be lights  Santos on the tree
Santos Guzman, Boardmember, El Bajio Taqueria. “Santos Claus”. Santos Guzman is a longtime Milpas family business owner of 18 years. Winner of the 2013 Menudo Festival and featured in Forbes and The New York Times, El Bajio is well known for its delicious Mexican cuisine. Santos led the effort to return the holiday lights to Milpas, and was one of the major engineers of the Taste of Milpas on Eat Street, an event in which he also starred as one of the most popular stops on the Taste route. He decorated the holiday tree in the Milpas roundabout by fearlessly scaling up a very tall ladder! He loves making the holidays bright and special in this community. We love his cooking, so we’re happy he loves bringing his amazing food to all our events!
