Cool 25 Peso Margaritas? Woo Hoo!

First, I spent 2 weeks convincing my guys that it's okay to make our delicious house margaritas strong and tasty - like always - and serve them for only 25 Pesos. The guys are so ready and excited you'd think they've been drinking margaritas!

Then I surprised them by announcing we'll be serving 2 for 1 Tacos Al Pastor. Ha ha! You shoulda heard 'em, "but Russell, we'll be cheaper than those guys across town, EVERYONE'S going to come!" Bwaaaa!!! Exactamundo! That means for 3 hours a day a taco al pastor is only 5.5 Pesos each! - of course you'll have 2 as no one can eat just 1 - otherwise it wouldn't be 2 for 1

But wait . . . there's more! Not everyone drinks margaritas, S O O O O O O . . . For the beer lovers we're hitting you with Buckets of Beer for only 120 Pesos! That's right ninos and ninas, this is the REAL DEAL BUCKET. . . we're talking 6 beers packed in a bucket of ice for YOUR drinking pleasure!!! My calculator tells ME that that's only 20 Pesos a beer - and our accountant is now officially steaming!!!! Can I get a WOOT-WOOT!!

But, but wait!!!! . . . . mailman whispers in my ear: {huh? really? Dang it!} Sorry folks, we wanted to give you copies of Slim Whitman's greatest hits (more #1 singles than Elvis and The Beatles combined!), but it turns out they were delivered somewhere else.

Okay; so let us review:


That's right Cool Kats, 7 days a week until we say so . . . Swing by after the beach and take advantage of these great specials!

See you there!

Thanks Russell! Can't wait to try that pumpkin seed salsa!

My bro and sister in law are going to Playa in a week. They did a lot of stuff last time, but I told them the #1 thing they missed out on was Carboncitos. I saw them today and made sure to remind them of that. They are on board, and will be moreso after this new news!

Carboncitos is an awesome place for dinner, but frankly this happy hour also makes it an awesome place to stop before dinner, or for a very light meal if you don't want to get filled up before drinking.

Just think, show up on a Thursday/Saturday around 5, have a bucket of beers or a couple margies, a couple tacos, and a platter of chips/salsa, and then hit bad boys from 6-9. Hit La Pummarola for a personal pizza on your way to El Bar for a night cap. Would make for a perfect evening.

Matter of fact, I think that will be my schedule next time in town.

Dear Snappysammy,
For years now, I've been reading to our staff what people write about us; the good, the bad and the ugly. Today, these folks absorbed your words like a pep talk from Vince Lombardi. They are the ones that prepare it and put it on the table, I am merely a cog in the wheel. I am proud to work with these fine people and felt great pride sharing your feedback.
From all of us, thank you for taking the time to so eloquently share your experience.
Russell
