All of us in the Cinco Four have played in bands before, and as everybody knows, the most fun part of playing in a band is coming up with the name. The Hollywood equivalent is coming up with the name of your production company. How about “Pearl Jam 2″, Devin?
As American as apple pie. Johnny Appleseed. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. You get the idea. What could be as pure and wholesome as the good, old fashioned apple? Nothing. That’s what. Apples are so wonderful, in fact, that we manage to pack almost an entire 4 minute episode chock full of appley goodness. Enjoy.
Tonight’s menu: the number 80 – tortas de milanesa.
Sometimes it seems that Todd hates every item on the menu at Cinco de Mayo, but is simply not true. Todd love the BLT. Todd looooooooves the BLT. LOVES it! So if Todd says something is amiss with the BLT combo, I’m inclined to believe him. I bet he wishes he were eating a BLT instead of the shrimp cocktail.
Also, Happy Birthday to our 1st President, George Washington! In his honor, here are some facts you may not have known about Gee-Dub. (Naughty language WARNING for those of you who like to keep little ears around.)
Campechana is icy cold seafood soup. The variety they serve at Cinco has some abalone, some shrimp, a little onion and avocado, and octopus! Despite the fact that it tasted pretty alright, I still had a bit of a hard time eating it. I’ve come up with a few theories about why.
I have tremendous respect for octopuses. They are actually very intelligent creatures who are capable of disguises and trickery, and when they are kept as pets they recognize their owners and will often swim to the glass to greet them. Maybe I felt bad eating an oceanic friend?
I like soup, but I want it to be warm and comforting. Campechana is cold. Maybe icy cold seafood soup just isn’t for me?
Or it could be the episode of CSI: NY I saw where a party guest was killed when an improperly prepared baby octopus on a stick (a food item) came unwrapped while being eaten, attached its suction cups to the person’s throat, and asphyxiated them.
