It's time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Where's the place to go? Anywhere but Pedro's?

On a more helpful note, Eldorado Grill is having some sort of event, including a band.

You'll be happy to know that I had tacos for lunch today. A free Jarritos too, on account of Cinco de Mayo.

In the past I have gone to Casa del Sol, but it was way too crowded. Hard to get a drink. So tonight I'll celebrate with a snifter of Don Julio añejo. If only I could afford their 1942 on a regular basis.

Habeneros. Took one of the little ones there yesterday. I really like that place and kick myself for not thinking of heading there more often.

In a major menu planning faux pas, I will be eating Oyster Sauce Chicken tonight.

Please forgive me, for I have sinned.

My mother has retired to Jalisco, so I get a botttle of good tequila every few months. Never been a fan of 1942 or any other anejo; all that time in the barrels leave them tasting an awful lot like whiskey, which I can't stand. I do like reposados, of which the best available here seem to be Tradicional, Milagro, and Don Julio. Last night we sipped Tequia Arette, which is very good, but not as good as the Don Fulano we had last year, which is the best I've ever had.

I wound up celebrating the day in the proud tradition of most white folks that don't know or care what they're actually celebrating - we went to a completely unrelated restaurant and consumed things that were tangentially "Mexican" at best.

I have to say though, the cask-conditioned Max Stout at the Vintage chases a plate of "Irish Nachos" pretty darn well.
