Ok, so I love me niece to pieces. So much so that I will risk eating at Casa Bonita for her on her birthday.
For those of you who live in Denver you know what I'm talking about right? For those of you who don't please let me explain. It's this huge old funky Mexican restaurant in a dicey part of town that has everything a child could want under one roof. From the mariachi bands, the cliff diving show, the arcade and 1000's of square feet to run in, to the millions of family photo ops they have everything. Here's the kicker.....there is no admission fee, just a requirement that every guest purchase an entree to get in. Eew, ugh, gross. I can feel my stomach starting to turn already. I'm sorry but the food at this place is disgusting.
I'll be lucky to get out of there without getting the shits for the next week! There is one thing I can say about the food though. They have really good sopapillas! Duh of course they're good they are covered in sugar and honey and my kids are getting that crazy, weird "high" look in their eyes. OMG give me a margarita quick (great for the moment and my sanity but I'm sure they will be against me in the odds of getting the squirts later).
So the kids have run themselves ragged and have all passed out in the car ride home. Finally some peace and quite. Gives me time to pray that I don't wake up at 3 a.m cursing Casa Bonita and their cafeteria style dinners.
