Putting the Fat in Fat Tuesday? You bet I did!
Apart from the cookies, let’s just say I did some good work at Taco Tuesday. I made my way through two bowls of chips and salsa, shrimp and cochinita street tacos, and a TJ dog (that would be a hot dog, wrapped in bacon, and covered with jalapenos, salsa and other goodies. It’s insane).
I was sporting a serious taco/chip belly. Thank goodness for the $2 tecates to wash everything down!
If you should ever find yourself in downtown San Diego anytime soon, do yourself a favor and hit up La Puerta for some serious tacos and margarita action. I hadn’t been there in quite a while, and I’m so glad it was in the cards last night. It does get pretty busy, but lucky for us the downtown Mardi Gras festivities seemed to clear the place out. Fine by me!
Ah yes, it was Mardi Gras. We (my friends and companions for the evening – Mike, Stephanie and Karl) didn’t go to the Mardi Gras party in the Gaslamp. Instead we made our way over to the Hard Rock Hotel to see Built to Spill in concert.
It was so much fun! Built to Spill has been around for a while, and honestly, I haven’t really listened to them in a while, but man did they put on a show last night! They might be a little older (aren’t we all?) but they didn’t skip a beat. It was pretty crowded but I somehow managed to run into two of my brothers friends, both of whom I had met 2 years ago. Always fun to run into a familiar face! (Hi Zack and Ryan!)
Oh yah, there was also this:
That would be a dog in a motorized mini-car jamming out to LMFAO’s ‘Sexy and I Know It.” With a light show. Loved it.
It was a very good night. I even came home with a party favor from the Hard Rock Hotel bar. Okay, maybe not. During the concert I finished my drink and decided that I didn’t want to lose my spot by disposing of it at the bar. So in the purse it went. I had intended to drop it off after the concert, but, well, you know how it ended.
