This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.


And The Winner Was

I hate like hell to link to this local paper because of several reasons but on this item of interest there's not much choice.

Local dispensary Rocky Mountain Remedies won top honors for the best strain of medical marijuana at the inaugural Western Slope Cannabis Crown in Aspen during the weekend. The Kandy Kush strain, grown in Steamboat, beat out entries from 140 other participants and won the growers a trip to the 23rd annual Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam this November.

Nice job boys!! I'll be down soon to try some of that winning strain as my lobster claw syndrome has been acting up.


  1. lol, me and my friend were just talking bout dispensaries

  2. Now I know I want to move back to Colorado.

  3. Just curious, but why do you hate to link to the Steamboat rag? It isn't even an infrequent read for me, so I wouldn't know.

  4. IF the winners get to Amsterdam good chance they won't come home.

  5. I've talked to both of these fellows. They are sharp and are doing well.

    MB-take the position of growth because their survival depends on ad sales.

    Literally lie on a daily basis.

    Will not take a position on the damage caused by excessive alcohol abuse they promote along with the chamber of whores.

    Censor you when you call them out for the blatant hypocrisy on positions taken.

    They love the hits they take and brag how good they are.

    Got more if need it.

  6. Hmmm... guess I need to read more. All of this is a bit surprising considering the Colorado I left behind back in the 80's, but I've seen some strange things out of Boulder as well. Seems the pendulum has swung.

  7. I think it has swung MB but at legislative level they are trying their best to negate what the people voted for. The amount of people that turned out in Denver for 420 was amazing. The state finally cashed my check for my get out of jail card. I"m waiting patiently by the mail box.

  8. I'll be back up there first week of next month, teaching a class in Denver. If I'm lucky I'll have a day to run up to Boulder, but not much more free time than that.
