Did you remember that it’s First Friday?!
Matt and I didn’t make it to the galleries tonight. I spent the afternoon doing boring work at my computer, munching on yogurt with cranberry sauce and hot tea with steamed milk.
And then I walked downtown to meet up with Faith!
Faith and I always meet at McGuffy for the dance performances on FF’s. Support the arts!! After the performance, our group of 4 had snowballed into 7 and we ventured around to find a restaurant who could take us. After a very unfriendly visit to Now & Zen followed by a sardine-like visit to Mono Loco’s bar, we settled down at a table on the enclosed patio.
Warmed, but a bit chilly.
But the Spice-A-Rita was HOT HOT HOT!
We shared a bowl of los chips around the table. Mono Loco has excellent chips! We were all really hungry at this point, so the chips were gobbled.
Our meals came out shortly…there were a few issues with raw onions and mine, but it seemed to come out in one piece.
Except after 2 bites I realized I was eating fried chicken instead of fried oysters
My replacement took a while to come out, and when it did I ate too much of it as I rushed to catch up. Now I feel too full with garlic/onion breath from salsa! I would like to eat a refreshing clementine but there is no more room at the Stomach Inn.
We had a great time with all of our friends though!
Our walk home was cold, but it was a WALK!!! And for that, I was very thankful.
