Thursday night Margaritas.

Last night we did our weekly Los Tios Margarita Night. It is actually pretty fun. A few weeks ago we happened to pass by there for dinner on a Thursday night and a band was playing. The following week we ended up there again on a Thursday and realized the band plays on the same night every week. So it has now become our weekly "date". It's nice to sit back and relax, listening to the band, and eat good food. We use to get the Fajita Nachos every time but we decided to switch it up last night. I had a couple of Chicken Tacos and W1 went with a beef one. It was wild, as it took about 2 minutes for our food to come out. I was shocked. The best was the dessert though. Last week we decided to try the sopapillas. They were amazing. Most places give you honey to put on them which is delicious. This place gives you honey and caramel.

Last night was the saxaphone player's birthday from what I gathered. He was doing well in his salmon (aw come on, it was PINK) shirt. His girlfriend was also there. She has been there every week too. Last night she was in a black cocktail dress looking very professional. Last week however, she was in jeans and a black tee shirt with a huge pentagram on the back. Very odd.

Another set of regulars that seem to show up each week are a couple of guys (and I stress "couple") that don't really look like they fit in. They look to me like the guys you would see hanging out playing Magic the Gathering, or Dungeons and Dragons. Long hair, 80's rock band tee shirts. We don't talk to any of these people, but we do enjoy the "people watching". People get up and dance, and some of them are really good. W1 wants to learn to dance like them, but I told her I didn't think it would be fun. The ones who are really good don't have a look on their faces like they are enjoying themselves. I think they are just really concentrating. But I would think if it takes that much concentration, it would take a lot of the fun out of it. You can't really enjoy the music if you aren't paying attention to it. Just my opinion, I'm probably completely off on that one.

Ok, short update there, but it beats waiting 2 weeks right?

What you do, see, is learn to dance well enough for it to be fun, but don't get so involved that you have to concentrate to show just how good you really are! Sounds a lot like Caretta's on a Wednesday.
