Mexico Fest Weekend!
Friday night I met up with Jorge, Diane & Andres with our intentions of going to th Lamplighter for their happy hour of $6 for beer and wings. However, apparently they do not accept Mexican passports for ID so we couldnt get in. Second option was the Cambie - and again - same problem. Is there like an abundance of fake Mexican passports going on in Vancouver right now for us not being able to get in?
Anyways - Andres suggested Malones and yes! Finally a place with no ID problems :) I had never been here before, and really loved the vibe. Music was great with everything from current Alabama Shakes and The Sheepdogs to my fave Jimmy Eat World track I used to play on my way to the surf in Huntington Beach.
We shared some wings, (maple chipotle, bbq and hot), a poutine and 3 pitchers.. then headed off to a house party!
Next day, I met up with my buddy Neil to go watch the Lions game! We had the craziest fans behind us filled with face paint, helmets & huge flags they would taunt the solo MTL fan with. However they gave us free beer while they kept calling Neil, Bob Marley. We destroyed MTL with a 43-10 victory!
Afterwards, Neil & I strolled over to the Mexico Fest happening in Coal Harbor and had Pina Coladas - well I had the colada and Neil had the pineapple.
Then I met up with Jorge, Andres & Diane where we checked out the rest of the festival, had some tacos, and shopped. Apparently they had argentina lesbian movies in the same bin as spanish Barney. We watched a beautiful sunset, and I called it a night. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
