Yeah! It happened! We have officially welcomed our first visitors! Martha & Darrel Knight, our compadres, arrived on Friday after a short, uneventful flight! Since Eddie was at work on Friday, we started the day out by walking down the block for some famous “Chicago Devil Dawgs” … in other words … Hot Dogs! I must say that, although Martha really enjoyed her Chicago style HD, I am still very much partial to the La Verne hot dogs created by honey in the backyard!
Oh well … I tried! After a nap and a nice walk around the block, we went out for dinner to a place that Eddie had tried (and loved) a couple of weeks back. I was adamant that we continue the “Friday Night Margaritas” tradition (although, I did cry when I realized it wasn’t going to be with our babies, Edward Jr., and Ashley, whom we have met every Friday for Margaritas for a couple of years now!). So, we uber-ed it over to the “DeColores Restaurant” in the neighborhood of Pilsen (which looks a little like Olvera Street on steroids!). We were greeted by Sergio, the owner, and we were not disappointed … all I can say is … OMG, they made us a “Magnificent Margarita” all by hand, with fresh ingredients right there behind the bar. “Salud” was all we could utter before our table settled down to a serious silence as we enjoyed one of the best margaritas we’ve ever had. Then came the food … well, it followed in much the same manner as the margies … prayer, silence, gobbling, enjoying! Delicious is not a word to do this meal justice. You’ll have to come and visit so you can try it for yourself! Really!
It was a great day and we ended the evening with a nice walk back to our apartment, fully content in the experience, the wonderful tastes, and the blessing of good friends. Talk to you tomorrow!
