Now here's something I haven't done in a long while. Compose a post on the fly the same day I post it. I wonder how that happened?
Normally I spend Sunday afternoons putting together my five posts for the week. All neat and tidy, ready to go at 6:05 AM every morning. But yesterday, after mowing the lawn next door in preparation for the arrival of guests there today, we decided to get cleaned up and go downtown.
We started out at Brisas Grill, which has a happy hour all afternoon. We were disappointed that the band was not playing and that we were the only guests. We shared a delicious shrimp ceviche and then were unexpectedly joined by a couple of friends.
That led to moving to the local bar next door. Just a tiny street side affair that does not draw tourists. They do serve a mean bowl of Chilichole though. (not sure if that is the correct spelling) You have to order a beer or beverage to get it though. Much like a botanas bar. So, just for good measure, I had two! While sitting there, another friend passed by and joined us. This place also does ribs on a charcoal burner placed on the sidewalk out front. Ok then, let's have a couple of orders of ribs too!
From there we decided to go down to Playa Sol and watch the sunset. They have 2 x 1 also. The sunset was disappointing but the beer was cold! And the conversations rapid and entertaining. Sergio was not serving food so we decided to head back downtown and get fish fingers at Bamboo.
While there, we hooked up with a couple of more friends and it really turned into party central! It was really hot in there though so after awhile we decided to saddle up and walk down the street to Adelita's. By now the band was playing at Fayne's and everyone was in a silly, happy-go-lucky mood. Even Fireboy was there to perform. We had a round a drinks there and then everybody decided it was probably time to put a cap on it and head for home. I was quite pleased with myself for having contributed so much to the local economy!
So now you know why I have no posts ready for the week, am composing on the fly and, most importantly, have a killer headache this morning!
