As much as I suck at planning events, I still love trying to plan them and coming up with new fun things to do. I also prefer for these things to be planned in advance, because I’m a crazy psycho scheduler (different from planning, because it only requires me to organize myself) and I like to get my social ducks in a row.
This is the reason I’m so excited for the monthly DC blogger/blog reader/Twitter meet-ups. Every third Wednesday. Mark your calendars.
In a similar manner, another group of friends and I have recently decided to have monthly get-togethers of our own. It all started with Taco Night.
I have a funny story about tacos, but I’m actually planning to start a new story-telling thing next week, so I’ll save it. Plus, it’s kind of gross and wouldn’t fit in here.
Anyways, my friend Unmani hosted taco night and it was awesome. I’d had a terrible day, so I was very happy for friends, grub and Corona.
Corona Light, because I’m ballooning at a pretty steady pace these days. I arrived early and assisted with the meat preparation. Unmani had never cooked with beef before, so I stepped up to do the dirty work.
She added all the spices, and it turned out great. Everyone chipped in to help, so dinner was ready in no time.
I made a giant taco salad instead of using any shells. I like to think this allowed for more cheese and sour cream.
The food was great, but it was also fun just to hang out. There were even kids there, and I kind of liked them. This is a big deal folks.
Kids that plank are pretty cool. The boy was hilarious and a total flirt, and the baby was adorable. I kept my distance for the most part, but maybe this is the start of a less child-fearing life.
What do you like on your tacos/taco salad? I don’t think there’s anything I don’t like. Beans, salsa, sour cream, guac, cheese, tomatoes, olives, peppers… you name it, I’ll put it on!
