Casa Romero

Last night Joey and I ventured over to Casa Romero for dinner, and now its easily one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. Joey works on Newbury St., after he was done for the day we headed a block away from his office to the corner of Newbury and Gloucester, and down the public alley to the restaurant's entrance.

Did you ever watch "What You Get for the Money" on HGTV?
These parking spots in Back Bay are worth ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND dollars.

Anyway, I digress. Boston isn't known for its great Mexican restaurants, and this one is like a hidden gem. Hidden, but not secret, because its always packed.
They had the three things that matter most to me: great margaritas without any help from some cheater-cheater-pumpkin-eater sugar filled mix, delicious guacamole, and killer chicken fajitas.

I got the classic margarita, and Joey got the perfect margarita, and they actually did taste different. I'd get the perfect one next time.
 Plus the decor is beautiful. I'd recommend it any day of the week.

We called it an early night because Joey headed out to Houston today for a meeting.

I miss him already. Fortunately Leon ended up not going, so now we're watching Lifetime movies together... so it ain't so bad.

I know last Monday's post was a downer, but I'm trying to be more open on this blog, which may mean some downer days. All in all I had a pretty craptastic week, but I'm at peace with it. Sometimes you have crappy days and weeks, but I did the best I could and that is just going to have to be good enough.
My match list was due on Friday, and its just 3 weeks until we find out where we're going next year. I can't wait.
I hope everyone has a great long weekend.


  1. You always make the places you two go sound so fun and fancy :).

    Can't wait to hear the big news about where you will be next year!

  2. oh thanks Joanna! Sometimes they ARE fancy, but at those places we just sit at the bar and slug down wine to take the classiness down to a level at which we're comfortable.
