The year is a bit past it's half-way mark and I'm about half-way through the alphabet! I'm at the 12th letter in the 27th week of the year - so just a LITTLE behind. I'll have to make up for it on the back-half but I'm confident I can whiz through M-Z without any problem.
For the letter L - I decided to cancel this week's vote. I feel like I know you guys pretty well and typically if there's a new place with some buzz - that's who you vote for. And well - Lime Taqueria opened in Mainstrasse recently and there's some buzz - so I took matters (and my Groupon) into my own hands and went for it!
Inside - you basically check the SMALL menu and order - then the girls will bring your order to you. The menu only has maybe 5 things on it - so you can't be with really picky people.
Larry got the BBQ Pork Burrito ($6.50) which seemed silly to take a picture of - I mean - it's a wrapped object. It was much better than my tacos and we both liked the flavor although it could have used more bbq sauce - because it was really just a hint of sweetness - rather than true bbq flavor. I didn't taste any of the pineapple salsa really - but like I said - we both liked it.
Why Should You Go? Well I love the concept but I didn't love the food. So not sure I'll go back. They have a new special each day (it was a rather boring sounding "Ground Beef Tacos" this day) - but those usually sound unique and funky. Maybe if I'm with someone else - I'll give it another whirl. I think I'd have to do some heavy convincing to get Larry to go back. Hopefully some of you have tried it and liked it better.
Europa for some gelato - Larry loves that stuff. The staff there is SO friendly and the servings are huge - I got a small and it was plenty! Larry's eyes were much larger than his stomach and he got a large and couldn't even finish it. I also found out they serve a very fancy sounding dinner! We've already decided on that for a future date night.
Then we just strolled around Covington - you never know what you'll find!
Then we stumbled upon Willard St! (That's my maiden name.) A couple blocks away - there's a Johnson St. We decided someday we need to find a house at the corner of Willard and Johnson to live in.
I have to put in a little plug for our morning as well - we went to the NACC Convention which had been invading downtown for a few days. I got to see Francis Chan speak and he was amazing! He wrote the books Crazy Love, Forgotten God and the just released Erasing Hell. He's so engaging and just sucks you in from the moment he opens his mouth. Sincere and authentic are two words I would use to describe him. His books have made such an impact on me - it was great to hear him in person. Not to turn this into a religious blog - but if you're at all curious about God or church or any of that (or already a church-goer) - I highly recommend his books. Wow.
It was a great way to spend a vacation day - I know that!
