Last Thursday (a week ago) we had the pleasure of joining our friends Anne and Gilbert at Ortegas Mexican Bistro in Hillcrest for Happy Hour. The beauty of hanging out with Anne and Gilbert is that they live close to our house, so we get to carpool almost wherever we go together. :)
Ortegas has an awesome Happy Hour, which we've never been to before. Sally had told me about it a long time ago, but we kept forgetting to go. The Happy Hour lasted until 6:30pm, and you can get a bunch of taco plates and appetizers for around $4-$5. Drinks from $3-$5.
Anne and I got margaritas. Cheers!
Gilbert and Todd enjoying the chips and great salsa.
In fact, their salsa was named best salsa in San Diego a few years ago in San Diego Magazine, and that's what drew us there in the first place!
Todd also ordered guacamole, which they make with fresh avocados right in front of you.
The ceiling lights at Ortegas was uber-cool!

My super-nommy poblano and portabello mushroom quesadillas.
We had such a great time there. As usual, we chatted about all kinds of things, including books and football. Love hanging out with Anne and Gilbert!
