so, my birthday was a while ago, but life happens, people get busy.  meals are postponed.  but friday we got together for mexican food to have a delayed celebration…with margaritas.

i always ask what folks are getting before they order.  i’m too curious to wait.  i get to a.h. and say…what are you getting…she says. “SHRIMP WRAPPED IN BACON.”  and she looked a little too excited about it for my comfort.  just kidding.

anyway, the place was packed.  i’m super glad we had a reservation.

i think it is sort of cool that people in mexico still make these papel picados, the traditional handcut paper banners!

i have to go…cody bear is staring at me….some form of mandarin collie mind control.

Happy late Birthday. The decoraitons are pretty and colorful and the bacon wrapped shrimp looks divine. Mexican is my favorite type food.

Happy birthday, Goodbear! What a colourful restaurant. The word “swaddled”, though, kinda evokes a sudden fondness for my old vegan days…
