|Poquitos' yummy eats. |
After catching up and discussing our
Left the hipsters for mason jars... Carl and I thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Grim's as we watched one of the most awkward first dates ever. Okay... we weren't entirely sure.. but there was like a 95% certainty that it was a first date. I mean the girl was flipping her back and forth saying "I'm just like really into... and not a fan of..... and when I go out, I like... blah blah.. what do you enjoying doing?" The guy was overdressed for a first date - full suit - at Grim's on cinco? puhleeezee you're trying a little too hard, bro. A few more laughs here and there, Carl and I decided that we really enjoyed the atmosphere at Grim's - we decided our next outing would be to go dancing at Woods (the upper level dancefloor) and maybe rent out the Butterfly Lounge for a birthday party... and then, we got carried away with our little event planning.
Next thing you know, it was time to meet up with Sarah and Robert for our cinco dinner!
We chose Barrio for our cinco de mayo dinner partayy... and indeed, it was a fiesta. Ayayayayaya - arriba arribaaaaa! I had heard many people rave about the ambience, food and drinks at this place and had been stoked for it this entire week.
With sangria, a round of pacificos, a gorgeous, Jake Gyllenhaal look-alike waiter and Carl's tequila... Barrio was fabulousness all around.
Some of my favorite eats at Barrio: Grilled Prawn and Rockfish Ceviche ($13), Chicken Verde Enchiladas ($15) and Mexican Coke Braised Pork Belly Tacos ($16).
|my yummy ceviche... love the plantain chips.|
check out the cute flag!
They also had grilled Mexican corn for $4!
|one of my favorite pictures of this night... Sarah was not having it. bahaha|
Aww look at my besties with their dranky dranks! Double fisting I see... soo proud. But po' Carl, he doesn't look too happy to take his tequila shot... aw sad face, Carl hahaha
Robert's drink (in his right hand) was called a Paloma in a bottle... Grapefruit soda, tequila and lime... yumminess.
|bahaha, YAY, that's more like it!|
And then this happened... Robert ordered a bucket of Pacificos....
And the result? Well, who knows what to call it? I'm just going to label it "fun."
|Here is "fun" at its finest. bahaha|
|WTH... I was expecting Barbie or at least a ring pop. sad face.|
|Yes, Robert... I know. Our toy sucked...|
Just laughter, jokes and sharing stories... that's the way we like it.. oh and of course, rounds and rounds of sangria and margaritas.
Hope you all had a fabulous festive cinco de mayo yesterday!
