We had a great margarita-filled night on Friday. Gus & Russ came over to our place to sample our homemade selection – I used John’s recipe and poured everyone a glass – we made a toast, i’m not sure why or about what, and our night officially began.
Once my sister and friends arrived we made our way to the best lil mexican restaurant in the west end, Poncho’s. We got there about 830 – the time of our reservations – and the place was PACKED. We had to wait about 15 minutes but they still catered well to our party of 9.
The food was excellent (we swear the salsa had a lil more kick this time) and the margaritas were plentiful.
Poncho’s is definately worth checking out, not only based on the menu but the atmosphere/character of the place is incomperable around here. Live music, laughter, pleasant wait staff and of course the Poncho’s Special.
When you order this drink Poncho himself bring out a little cart equipped with a coffee pot, candle, and about 4 different kinds of liqueur. It’s quite the display and smells extremely yummy – like sugar and liquor. He does a few tricks, lights it on fire, fills it up with coffee, covers the drink in whipped cream and tops it off with anothing liqueur poured from a flaming ladel. I owe John one the next time we go.
i have to run around the lower mainland this morning – because my sister told me to – and when your big sister needs you to switch around your work day and do something for/with her that’s fairly important, you do it. i’ll have to take the canada l– i mean the 98 b-line out to richmond and meet up with her, it should be an adventure. i’m not looking forward to working 11:30am to 7:30pm but what can ya do. some things just need to be done. and besides – now i’ll get to work a lil longer with Lolo – which I havent done since she went on the crazy 12:30pm – 8:30pm shift like a madwoman. fun times. i know i’ll be totally ready to cash out early tonight, as soon as i walk in the door…. or maybe right after House….
EDIT: i can’t go to bed early! we have philly/buffalo tonight as well as habs/canes!
