Good Eats

There's a secret place in San Miguel Dueñas that Ben and his friends sneak off to every once and a while for some serious male bonding. There are normally three prerequisites involved in a guys night -beer, lots of meat & sports - and this place offers up 2 of the 3 with a side of a whole lot of ambience. I've never before been invited and never even really wanted to go, but when I actually got an invitation to join in on the fun, my curiosity got the better of me.

A couple of nights before we let town, our friends Quincy, Brandon & Carlos rolled by to pick us up and off to Dueñas we went. A place known for being the depot for chicken buses, as well as the home to drug cartel jefes (bosses), you'd think it may be a bit of a sketchy place, but really it's not bad. It's a large town with lots of people out and about in the streets and nothing too scary seems to go down. To add to the fun, there are a plethora of street vendors dishing up delicious carnitas (meat on tortilla). Q has been crashing Dueñas for years, so he lead us to his favorite joint where we hung out in the street, eating and people watching the night away.

Of course he also brought along his favorite furry girl, Konga. She's a hoot, with only 2 good legs & a hilarious bark that makes her sound like she smokes 3 packs a day. She made for a great guard dog, keeping the street dogs at bay while we ate.

Enjoying some girl time
