What To Do About Those Beer-Induced Cravings

cactus

Boy and I have been taking a Beer Judge Certification Program at a valley beer brewing club/supply store for the last month and a half. This means driving out to the valley at about 6pm (prime traffic time), studying beer for 3+ hours, and tasting a variety of good and also bad beers. You can imagine that after three hours of going over style, malts, hops, and brewing temperatures, the tasters of the beers studied that day are more than welcomed. But what about the little tinge of hunger you get when your tummy has imbibed a delicious beverage?

It was hard to ignore our tummies this week and we gave into Cactus Taqueria late into the night. We got three carne asada tacos with our two dollars and some change dug up from the bottom of my wallet. So frickin delicious. We wanted to get more but was out of cash and left dreaming about those little tortillas filled with flavorful beef and refreshing salsa verde. I fell asleep daydreaming about them and even when I woke up the next morning I was still thinking about them!

Boy and I decided that a taco eating contest at Cactus should be in the works. I claimed I could eat 15 and may have spoken too fast. But those tacos are so small! Although I've never been in an eating contest, I am weirdly confident. I can say I've dreamed a few times of entering a burrito eating contest in Santa Barbara but never stepped up to it. Who wants to come out and cheer for me?

Aww... isn't mexican food the best after a night of liquid debauchery. i once took a wine tasting class at the Winehouse in West LA. I walked in sober, and walked out crazy. I'd support you with short skirts, pom poms, virginity and tremendous spirit, but you must watch out for this guy...

i once did 13 smaller sized danger dogs (bacon wrapped death) in 45 mins while in Rosarito. I regret it to this day.

it's also a good thing your camera has auto-focus, b/c that photo of the Cactus #1 marquee is damn clear... considering your condition haha.

haha, danger dogs! i like that. but the more important is did you win??

we don't drink a large quantity of beer so not really a strong buzz or anything. just enough to make me hungry! omg, i want some right now.
