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.

Let's see - no one I know got invited to the "dinner" at the White house and I'm sure no one you know was there either. Plenty of yuks I'm sure for those within the Beltway.

Personally I find little funny about this event given what I think about our "State of the Nation". Find it to be more of an insult than entertainment.

Bottom line this is for the privileged few who attend this event in their lavish dress and postured smiles. Why in the hell do I have to feed these fuckers!!


  1. At least you didn't have to cook for them...hahaha!!!

  2. When I think of the WHCD, I think Shark Week Inside the Beltway.

    1. Shark Week....perfect!

  3. Even the jokes are full of fakery. Mutual back scratching between pols and hacks.

  4. A friend just told me that one of your kings - he may have had a 14 behind his name made everyone be there when he took a crap. This is kinda like that.
