People ask Luna and me what we do on our days off (Monday and Tuesday). Usually, we schedule work-related meetings that we can’t hold while we’re cooking or waiting tables. Other times, I’ll take care of administrative tasks, make online updates; and occasionally, I’ll check in on my Facebook account, and see what’s been happening in my absence.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, we eat out. On a pretty consistent basis, we’ll go to Taqueria del Sol, where we can enjoy the requisite Marguerita with our usual order of two tacos (our usuals are the Memphis and Carnita, but they are all faves), the salsa trio, guacamole and chips.
Not too long ago, we were “busted” by the Loaf’s Cliff Bostock, who caught us saying “hello” to one of Luna’s favorite chefs, Eddie Hernandez, while shoving amazing Mexican food in our faces.
Contrary to what many folks will think, when chefs (and food critics) get together, they tend to eat the food and talk about anything else. We ended up talking about parking–an issue for us, not so much an issue for Eddie, but also an issue for Cliff (who confessed to us that he doesn’t dine downtown (midtown, too, maybe?) as much as he used to because parking and parking enforcement is a disincentive for heading into town). Just last week, we finally experienced some parking relief on Mitchell Street, but we hope that more reasonable measures will be implemented in other parts of Atlanta.
