Taco Tuesday!

We recently traveled to Thailand. It was awesome. The food was great. But by the end our cravings for tacos were so intense that we hit up Plancha on the ride back from the airport. We have eaten tacos daily since… and come this Taco Tuesday, get ready for us to wolf down some more. When they are a just a buck each, its hard not to order 10.  Or more.

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: Seattle

If you’ve checked out our bios, you know that K hails from Sea-town. The land of the 12th Man, coffee, gloomy weather, and painfully polite people. It is also a town full of high-falutin alcoholics, who love them some good wine and beer.

Seattle has become quite the popular tourist destination of late, so for those planning a trip up to the beautiful boozy Pacific Northwest, make sure your meandering of Pike Place and the Ballard Locks is proceeded by some good-old fashioned sunday-funday bottomless-mimosa brunchin!

Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch 2015

Your mom is probably an awesome lady. She created and shaped you, didn’t she? See what we’re getting at? (Where else would your awesomeness come from, if not from an awesome mom??)

You know what you probably also got from her? Your love for wine. And just to birth your ass, she had to make the ultimate sacrifice and give up that beloved beverage for NINE WHOLE MONTHS. You owe her, big time. So in honor of Mommy’s Day take her out this Sunday to get gluttonously silly in public.

(And to all the Dad’s out there with little ones, remember how fun your wife used to be before kids? Call a sitter, tell her to put down the water bottle of mimosas, and take her out so she can relive the glory days. She needs it/deserves it…. )

Cinco De Drinko 2015

Mid week excuse to excessively indulge on tequila and tacos? Si Senor! Nos Gusta!

We’re thinking the perfect day involves taking some PTO and pre-funk’ing at home with a couple Modelos and the below cooler, by the pool. No pool? Your bathtub shall suffice. Then get your ass out of the house to soak up some of that booze with some cheap tacos… and more booze…. at one of  the below spots, donning your finest Mexican apparel and mustaches.
