Where: 2101 N California Ave

Cuisine: Mexican/Tex-Mex/Taqueria

Please join me and Nina for RC this Friday at Lonesome Rose.

This is a Land and Sea Dept. joint (Longman & Eagle, Lost Lake, Milk Room), so of promising pedigree. And it’s regional focus is more on the Tex-Mex side, which appeals to my “tay-has” roots …

As an added bonus, there’s a “hauntingly beautiful,” speakeasy-like bar beneath the restaurant called Golden Teardrops, which sounds rather enticing.

No reservations taken here, but the friendly person I spoke with over the phone yesterday said we’d likely be safe around the 6:30pm hour (we’ll try to get there a little early to put our name in).

Let me know by noon on Friday if you can make it!

Ok, Mother Cluckers, here’s the deal— I’m pregnant and cranky and the only thing that will help is some Mother Clucking fried chicken. So I plan to get some on Friday evening at Mother Cluckers Kitchen. They don’t take reservations, but let me know if you are in— it’s counter service so Sawyer and I can go early if needed and reserve some tables.

Not able to join me? Go cluck yourself.

Hey all, I’m taking Jenny’s rc this week to check out Ixcateco Grill. It’s headed by a former Bayless chef dude, so there’s that. And Mexican food is the absolute best food ever, so come share the same sentiment, or argue with me.

Let’s say 6pm. Let me know Friday by noon.
