SUR Restaurant & Lounge manager Peter Madrigal

The episode of Bravo TV’s hit show “Vanderpump Rules” that aired last Monday took place in Los Cabos, Mexico, where Stassi Schroeder flew down with some of the staff of SUR Restaurant & Lounge to celebrate her 25th birthday. Among the celebrants were Schroeder’s ex-boyfriend Jax Taylor, Peter Madrigal, Tom Sandoval, Kristen Doute, Scheana Marie and Katie Maloney, both accompanied by their boyfriends.

Tonight on the Vanderpump Rules saga some of the SUR Restaurant & Lounge staff are in Los Cabos, Mexico, to celebrate Stassi Schroeder’s birthday. After watching the previous episodes, I am not sure who has been invited. Will Scheana Marie be there? Over last season, she had become friends with Schroeder, but the relationship dissipated over time.

If Guillermo Zapata’s birthday party on the hit Bravo TV show Vanderpump Rules went smoothly two episodes ago, it was not the case of Peter Madrigal’s 30th birthday celebration in the last episode. Zapata is a co-partner of West Hollywood’s SUR Restaurant & Lounge where Madrigal is a manager.

 

Server Katie Maloney had a little too much to drink during Madrigal’s party (she admitted this to me last week when I popped in at the restaurant). And she talked too much. Turn on your TV or DVR for tonight’s show and see if she was right….

SUR Restaurant & Lounge Bartender Jax Taylor, Vanderpump Rules cast member

If the drama slowly built during Season 1 of Bravo’s TV show Vanderpump Rules, Season 2 started right in the middle of it. Much of the show that stars the servers and bartenders of SUR Restaurant & Lounge in West Hollywood seems to be centered on Stassi Schroeder and Jax Taylor’s relationship. Over the course of the episodes, that has resulted in lots of crying, fighting and roller coaster emotions for the pair.

During the second episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Lisa Vanderpump’s new TV show “Vanderpump Rules”, we watched girlfriend/boyfriend Stassi Schroeder and Jax Taylor break up after a two-year relationship. The show is filmed at SUR Restaurant & Lounge, located in West Hollywood, CA. It follows the staff ruled by Lisa Vanderpump, co-owner of the restaurant with her husband Ken Todd and Nathalie & Guillermo Zapata.

 

I recently dined at SUR Restaurant & Lounge. As you can see Stassi (who is a server) posed with Jax (who is a bartender) with me. I can tell you that it did not end up in a cat fight. Are they back together? I don’t know more than you. Only way to find out: watch the next episodes airing on Mondays on Bravo.
