The dish that drove the internet insane...

Bacon and spring pea guacamole at Lolita.

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.
