Mexican Food With A DJ

Strawberry Margarita

Frozen Strawberry Margarita

Oh, how I LOVE when I discover a hot spot I am absolutely coconuts about.  This Mexican restaurant was absolutely fun and amazing.

A girlfriend and I were gallivanting in the ritzy part of town and stopped by this joint on a whim Friday night for some girl time and good eating.  We had never tried this place before and, you know, I like trying things I’ve never done and going places I’ve never gone to before—so I’m always game for trying something at least once.  I’m all about livin’ life, baby.

Apparently they have a live DJ on Friday nights—and, boy, was he rockin’ it out!  I couldn’t stop dancing in my chair!  And you’d think, as it was a Mexican restaurant, that there’d be Mexican music playing—but, no, he played a mix of everything BUT Mexican music.  Go figure!

People randomly got up from their tables to dance—even though there was technically no dance floor.  But I love when people just dance wherever they can find some space!  It’s a restaurant, after all—not a club.  But it sort of turns into a restaurant/club on Friday nights.

The DJ was so good at DJ-ing, I couldn’t help but go ask him who he was and how often he played there.  I had to get up another time to go ask him the name of a song he played that I had never heard before but found myself chair-dancing to.  (I’m a good chair-dancer.)

He was kind enough to tell me the song name and that song is now my new favorite song of the moment as I keep playing it on repeat on YouTube while I’m in the house messing about and I find myself house-dancing all day.  Oh, the little joys of my life—I tell you!

Mushroom Quesadilla

Mushroom Quesadilla with crimini & shiitake mushrooms, jack cheese, spinach, and crema; Gaucamole & chips.

Needless to say, the restaurant filled up with more and more people as the night went on.  It’s obviously the “happening” spot.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, take yourself to a restaurant that turns itself into a “club” with a “live” DJ for some good eating and good dancing all wrapped into one.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  For goodness sake, it’s probably not a good idea to try to drink a margarita on a completely empty stomach.  (There was a reason that quesadilla HAD to be purchased as an afterthought—but that’s neither here nor there.)

  1. I need to find a spot like that. There’s a Japanese place where the food is consistently good but no music to chair dance to really. Now you’re motivating me to be on the hunt for one around me!

  2. Sounds like you had a great night indeed, aaah music and food what a lovely combination, eh?! I have a Vietnamese restaurant in Berlin that is sort of similar, well actually its not, it plays great music but there is no DJ, but I do move and bop in my seat as I stuff my face everytime i go there!

    1. “Baby I’m Yours” by Breakbot. It’s such a dancy song. I don’t even know if it’s old or new, but it was my first time hearing it. I’m playing it now, Liz—watch out!!

      1. just found it on youtube–what a fun video! Love it when you find a new song to love. Do you know Galvanize by Chemical Brothers? I had the same experience–heard it, found out what it was, then listened to it constantly. A few years have passed and I’m still listening to it! New music finds are almost as good as new food finds 😉

        1. Lol. LIZ!! I just found it and now you got me playing that one on repeat. Don’t remember hearing it before. I just love fun dancy songs that make you happy and want to dance. 🙂 Good times. Thanks!

          1. we’ll chair dance together, haha. Glad you like Galvanize. I had never heard of it and like you, loved the beat and the tone. Here’s another fun one: Five Years Time by Noah and the Whale. Not so dancey, but it’s happy and the video is sweet. I can’t watch it without getting a huge grin on my face. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8YCSJpF4g4

          2. I’ll check it out. Chair dancing at home at the computer. Love it!!! 🙂 Watch out if I get up though. The whole house is getting danced all over. 🙂

  3. This is the second instance I have seen of this sort of appetizer. Found this Chicken, Bacon and Sundried Tomato Flatbread appetizer at a chain restaurant called Carrabba’s Italian Grill mentioned on a blog post. They both look fabulously tasty. Do you have a Carrabba’s restaurant in your city? We don’t, more’s the pity.

    Virtual hugs,

    Judie
