Siete De Mayo



So this is what my Cinco De Mayo comes down to. It's not a bad thing. Roberto's is pretty much the best fast food Mexican in town (nearly 20 different locations) and this is under a 1/8 mile away from the house. The place was packed but it always is in there. It doesn't take much to entice me to eat Mexican food... above all, I prefer it. What I found funny in the newspaper were the announcements for the holiday celebrations. They were all slated for May 7th. Yes, Cinco De Mayo is being moved from Thursday to Saturday. I can understand that you can get more people out on the weekend but come on! If they just had one little party, I'd feel a little better about it. Although, it isn't my holiday to complain about (I'll reserve that rant if they move St. Patrick's Day.)Posted by Hello

A 24 hour taco shop? I am living in the wrong part of the country *sigh*

24 hour everything really. Most Carl's Jr.'s are open 24/7 as well as all mini-marts. When I moved to Reno, I was used to having everything open late and remember my first time running out of gas because the stations were all closed. As you can guess, I didn't last there more than 6 months. It's amazing to see how life is somewhere else and I can't imagine living in Utah with alcohol restrictions.

Las Vegas sounds like a great place to live. I can see why it is booming. Great food, activities etc... Crap, I'm moving to a place lacking most of that (in comparison to Vegas, that is). You're right, Utah would probably suck -- all of the mexican food joints would have to close on Sunday, that's for sure.

I like it like that.

Something about the carne asada super nachos that is so so so bad for any diet that I could eat at a drop of a hat (the thing weighs about 2-3 pounds and costs under $6.) Having it so close, I just have to be good.

Hey martin, is this the Robertos over by the Capriotties sandwhich shop?
