Guadalajara Original Grill - Tucson

Gerry spent the morning at the rec hall practicing her knitting in the round.  She is making some hats for all the great grandbabies that we have now in the family.  We need to slow the grandkids down a little so she can catch up with them.  Grand daughter Stephanie is expecting twin girls in April.

It was time to get our Guadalajara Grill fix and we met friends Kathy & Mike there for happy hour on Friday night.  It is a busy place so Gerry and I arrived early enough at 4:45pm to get a table for the 4 of us.  Kathy & Mike are still working and arrived a little after 5:30.  By that time we were on our second drinks
and had ordered the salsa that they make at your table.  I don't do well with spicy salsa so we got one mild and a medium salsa.

When we arrived I was surprised that they weren't that busy, but it started filling up really fast right after we got there.  During the course of the evening all the tables were occupied and it was very loud.  I loved it.

Kathy & Mike

 We all sat around and got caught up on what's been going on with us all over the past 9 months.  Mike recently accepted a new position and is doing well, while Kathy continues to work for the University of Arizona.

 They make all their tortillas in full view of the customers.  You can really tell they are fresh when you bite into one.  I'd like to buy a couple dozen of them while we are there but I don't think they would go along with it.

They have a mariachi band that starts playing at 6:00pm and takes requests.  We only know a few songs and usually just listen to them play.  For the most part they sound great and are entertaining.

We spent about 2.5 hours at our table chatting and having a great time.  We left the waitress a great tip for occupying the table so long and headed for the bar area.  We managed to get a table out there and ordered another round of drinks.  It is a nice bar area but  we soon decided to call it a night.  After all, we still had to drive home.

Now we have to work on finding a place to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.  We met Kathy & Mike 5 years ago on St. Patrick's day and have made it an annual get together in addition to the other regular get-togethers while we are in the area.

That was our Friday, how was yours?
