Six of us (including Elizabeth and me, in the pic) went out tonight to take advantage of a Restaurant Week deal at Tio Pepe, this Spanish restaurant half a block from my house. Man, was that a good choice. The food was great, and there was a tiny bug on the table (not a big deal) so we all got free sangria. Apparently the bug’s name, in Venezuelan Spanish, is “chiripa,” which in Mexico means “luck.” Luck indeed – the sangria was tasty and fairly not-cheap. So all in all, discount 3-course dinner, free drinks, and good company….I’d call it a win.
