Episode 87: Art Piece

For a few seconds there we thought we might lose Todd to some neurotoxin found in improperly prepared ceviche. But it turned out he just doesn’t handle too much lime juice very well.

What unfolds later in the episode needs a bit of explanation. We first hatched this idea back in October 2012, and we even did all the prep work at that time. Then Todd moved to Orange County, and it took us almost five months to get together again to eat at Cinco. So tonight you see five months of careful planning finally come to fruition. We are pretty sure the results didn’t even last a week. Haha.

Tonight’s menu: the number 87 – ceviche tostada.

Episode 86: Devin’s Replacement

Sometimes a TV character or actor has to be replaced. This happens even on the most popular shows. Charlie Sheen was replaced by Ashton Kutcher. Winning! Going back a little further, B. J. Hunnicutt replaced Trapper John McIntyre as Hawkeye Pierce’s bestie on M*A*S*H. Going back even further, Dick Sargent replaced Dick York as Darrin on Bewitched, and nobody even noticed!

Tonight we replace Devin. It only took us 86 episodes to realize he was dead weight. Better late than never, I suppose.

Tonight’s menu: the number 86 – chili cheese fries.

The 88th Night Fiesta

Dear Friends and Amigos,

88 Nights is drawing to a close. In fact, we will be eating our 88th and final item and filming our 88th and final episode this coming Friday evening, and we want all of you to join us!

The party kicks off at 8pm, and we will be there for at least an hour. You are free to order whatever you like, but we will all be eating “the 88” aka Mexican Nachos. Bring cash. Cinco doesn’t take cards (although they do have an ATM).

So please come and shower us with praise for our mighty achievement. You might even realize your fondest dream by making it into the episode. You’re welcome in advance.

Un fuerte abrazo,

The Cinco Four

Episode 84: Magical Quesadilla

This video explains itself pretty well: we had four friends visiting us, so we decided to film their Cinco de Mayo experience. Simple.

Because the camera was set up on a tripod, and we were all sitting at a different table eating our own magical quesadillas, we didn’t know what they were talking about until now. In fact, Dave is probably the only one who really knows since he actually watches all the footage in order to create each episode. I can only assume the parts where they talk about how much work this project is despite our making it look effortless ended up somewhere on the cutting room floor.

Tonight’s menu: the number 84 – quesadilla.
