Way, way too much recreational drinking today. Green tequila jello shots on the beach started us out, then more beers on the beach, homemade green frozen margaritas, shots of racillia, and repeat visits to bars. Not good. But I did manage to hit one new one.

This bar and grill has only been open for three weeks and has been closed for the last three days because the manager had food poisoning. Not a ringing endorsement for the place and I probably won't be eating there anytime soon. There culinary specialty is cheesesteaks.
This used to be a Japanese restaurant and a few of the trappings are still around, lanterns out front and red-fringed light pulls. They have a nice wood topped bar but with a fake-brick front. Kind of tacky. The bar rail is a thick pipe. Above the bar is a nice ornate wooden wine rack supported by wooden columns. There are dark wood shelves behind the bar with mirrored backing. Wooden barstools with light-tan vinly cushions. It has a very nice patterned tile floor, kind of an Aztec design. There is a mirror on the wall to the right of the bar that has a multi-colored tiled frame. The walls are whitewashed and there are a few brick arches.
I had a Pacifico and we all headed out to do some serious damage to ourselves at bars that cannot be counted because they are repeaters.
320 for the year and 680 to go.
