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.
as you may or may not know (depending on how long you’ve been reading my blog) john makes a mean margarita – i still can’t wait to get back to Monticello, sit around his mom’s kitchen – eating pico de gallo and talk about life with the family.
as for tonight, we’ll see if we have any stories to tell later on…. :p
san jose/edmonton = edmonton, ottawa/buffalo = ottawa, carolina/new jersey = carolina (although john’s strongly opposed to carolina having a team due to their geographical location, hey – we can’t be cute and agree ALL the time), colorado/anaheim = anaheim.
i have my toothbrush in my mouth as i’m typing this so i won’t get into ‘in how many games’ detail. we’re still waiting for some more hockey podcasts coming out of Hockey Northwest but I believe Dave’s having some technical issues.
I’ll tell ya, tonight there was no hockey on and well, i missed it – how will i survive the summer?
EDIT: okay scrap that cuteness comment – john JUST posted a blog post about hockey and hockeynw… from across the room on his computer… GAW!! no wonder laura can’t stand to be around the two of us for extended periods of time.

this morning i noticed a bus stop ad on robson – a woman in gardening attire tending to her “plants” *wink wink* thanking showcase for showing her how to “grow her own”. now i know someone on metblogs or beyondrobson is going to have a post up about this pretty soon because it seems to be a trend to take pics of advertising space in vancouver and blog about it. i thought i would jump on that bandwagon – but i didnt take a pic of it. so i’m not as cool :p
