We are the Trujillo and Chavez Families.
We have lived in the Rio Abajo area of New Mexico for many generations.
The name "Fat Sat’s" comes from our Grandpa, Saturnino Trujillo.
Back in his day, friends and family of Saturnino Trujillo, just called him"Sat". Grandpa Sat, came of age in the roaring '20s, which we always thought was fascinating. We heard plenty of stories about prohibition era,which lasted from 1920-1933 and what life was like in the era of Chicago gangsters. Which, of course we found fascinating.
Most intriguing, was the creation of the SPEAKEASY.
Speakeasy Bars were run behind closed doors and would not be entered without a secret password. They offered exclusive cocktails and food menu items in a restricted environment that is only accessible to a few. The word “speakeasy” came from a bartender’s term: people were supposed to “speak easy” when at a bar, meaning not to draw any suspicion towards buying alcoholic beverages by looking nervous or talking quickly.
As proud descendents, we continue to pay tribute to "Fat Sat" and those of his generation, through the continued care for this family business that carries his name.
