Meximeet - Tacos, shots, and shoots. March 10

Postby gstark on Thu Feb 26, 2009 9:51 pm

By popular acclaim, our next Meximeet will be at March 10 @ Flying Fajita Sisters in Glebe, on March 10.

I will need to know numbers somewhat in advance, because I am led to believe that Tuesday nights here is ... popular.

With tacos and tequila shots at just $3 each, that is not all that surprising. I'm wanting to make a booking for maybe 10 PAX, so it's first in, best dressed.

So far ...

Ok ...

We may have an issue. I just called them to try to increase the numbers, but with no luck. They may be able to accommodate our full complement, or they may not. At the moment I think I can shed my guest, which brings us back to 12 sitting at a table for 10.

They will call me tomorrow with confirmation details, but ....

Hey Aim - great to meet you, and thanks for fun pics! If I'm not mistaken I can claim credit for the half in-focus tequila cup; don't forget to let me know what your better half thought of Mecca!

Bigjerry - good to meet you - let me know where you got to on coffee forums - either pm me, or e-mail on ashley@cremamagazine.com.au.

cheers
