Because of snow days, we still have two and a half more weeks of school remaining. State tests finished last week, and our students are pretty much done and exhausted. So are we, kids, so are we.
We are all dreaming a little of late nights outside, catching lightning bug, sipping yummy drinks, and enjoying the long, care-free days.
For a little pick me up on Friday, we decided to go out to our favorite restaurant on the Independence Square – El Pico – in time for happy hour. I typically indulge in the regular margaritas, but decided to mix is up and get a watermelon one. It was the perfect taste of almost-summer.
Of course, I love pretty much everything about El Pico. We’ve been going there since right after they opened, and it was the first restaurant we took our youngest to. The servers know our names and usually our orders. Our go to meals are the fajita salad for me, and the Tex-mex salad for my husband. We also love the burrito bowls and the avocado tostadas.
If you’re on the Square, definitely stop in. Oh, and get the hot salsa!
