SD..Any plans for Cinco de Mayo?

Every year, I say I'm not buying into that hype of it all..but something about drinking a couple of Negra Modelo's, Cadillac Marg's and some great food, always brings me back..

Going to Escondido for the Triple Trifecta of..Farmer's Market, O'Sullivans for a pint and then a restaurant..

Any suggestions on some great Mex places?

  1. I bought from Northgate, a 30 pack of tecates for micheladas, a el chavo pinata with mexican candy, squirt with tequila for palomas, fresh chicharron, chips, making two homeade salsas, guacamoles, and frijoles peruanos for maneados, and flan for late night party a mi casa.

    The celebration started early for me yesterday in Tijuana, with a cuban, mezcales, carnitas breakfast, and barbacoa de borrego.

    & Musica mariachi, nortena and banda for sure!

    I would say check out El Tejate or Cocina de Maria while in Esco or at least visit Vallarta Market which I like better than Northgate.

    Divertirte y feliz dia!

      Mmmm. Squirt and tequila. First had that at Carnival in Ensenada. Served in little terra cotta jugs/glasses with cut up melon in the bottom and bendy straws. Never knew the name "Palomas", thanks.
