I have three meat eating incidents to report this week.
Saturday, June 21st, 7:00pm:
The absolute highlight of this past week was going to Danni and Curtis’s wedding. These are two of the kindest, coolest, grooviest people that I know and celebrating their wedding with them was delightful. In addition to all of the lovely people in attendance, there was a wine/beer bar and a taco bar (chicken tacos!) and a sundae bar and a boatload of dancing and laughing and general jubilation… it was one big, wonderful party.
Tuesday, June 24th, 5:00pm:
On Tuesday, one of our friends invited us over to her condo (which she just BOUGHT, because she’s an ADULT) for drinks/desserts. Before we went over, Stephanie and I swung through Ballard and grabbed a bunch of $1 tacos at El Borracho’s. (I’ve written about going to this place previously.) This time, I made sure to try one of every variety (they have nine different kinds of tacos!); I still think that their carnitas taco (Coca-Cola braised shredded pork) is my favorite, but the cochinitas pibil (orange achiote pork with pickled red onion) was very good, too.
Saturday, June 28th, 1:00am:
Finally, last night we went to… Taco Bell! We had an impromptu night out (i.e., deciding to meet up after 10pm), with a couple of our friends at King’s Hardware over in Ballard. We each had some cocktails and then we split a pitcher of cider. It was fun, but it’s been awhile since I’ve been out at a busy bar on a Friday night… there were so many drunk, boisterous, LOUD, happy people! Anyway, Stephanie and I go to Taco Bell maybe once a month (it’s the only fast food place we go to, unless you wanna count Subway), but I usually order all veggie options because it’s easy and they’re sufficiently tasty (crispy potato taco!). But last night I had a hankerin’ for a cheesy gordita crunch (with beef). So I ordered one. And it was glorious.
