Hey, remember that thing where everyone on the internets went bonkers when the New York Times gently suggested that people might like to add green peas to their guacamole? Yeah, well look at the picture above. It appears the crew at Lolita were listening and not even denouncements from Jeb Bush and Barack Obama could sway them from their path.
And that course is just a start because Lolita is doing a full-on three-course Mexican BBQ dinner on Sunday and Monday, July 19 and 20. It covers just about every last bit of summer food you can think of.
Guacamole with green peas included.
The list of places to get a late-afternoon snack or drink continues to grow this summer, and we’re certainly not complaining.
Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran are opening the outdoor seating areas and the bars at Jamonera and Lolita in Midtown Village for their new summer happy hour menus on Sunday through Thursday from 5 PM – 6:30 PM.
Drinks will range from $4-$6, and all sorts of tapas will be available for $5. It may not be Granada (the city that offers free tapas with every drink), but, then again, it’s not far off.
Still unconvinced? Then check out the menu below for a little motivation.
With Cinco de Mayo just a week away, we over at Foobooz Headquarters decided we could no longer put off going through the folder we had marked, “Cinco de Mayo: Deal With Later,” in our emails. So here it is you tequila and guacamole guzzling heathens: your guide to Philly’s Cinco de Mayo.
Cinco de Mayo Street Festival at El Rey: The Stephen Starr restaurant is hosting its first ever, all-day (5/5, 2pm-10pm) street festival, featuring Mexican street food (think tacos, quesadillas, nachos, corn, margaritas and agua fresca), live mariachi music, piñatas and giveaways. The festival will be on the 2000 block of Ranstead Street.
