by Michael Miller, Albert Brilliott, better known as “Alberto” to hundreds of his friends, will be toasted at a short remembrance ceremony at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in downtown San José, Costa Rica on Saturday August 20th, at 7 p.m.
Bill Alexander, the owner of the Sportsmen’s Lodge, said that this will be an informal event. “I plan to say a few words about my good friend, Alberto,” said Bill. “I will raise a glass to his memory, and I hope others will join me.”
Alberto, a well-known figure in Downtown San José, passed away in his sleep on Thursday, August 11. He had been a resident of Costa Rica for nearly two decades, and on many an evening could be found holding court at the Sportsmen’s Lodge.
