I turned 30 at Boss bar with my friends Jonathan and Miguel who I worked with at Xoco. In the morning Etta made me bacon and eggs and a smoothie. She got me a large gift certificate for cowboy clothes. It was a saturday night and her food gave me good energy to be a fine dining host. After work I sat at the bar surrounded by my coworkers and friends and felt important- it a great birthday.
Victoria brought me a piece of chocolate coconut cake topped with candied peanuts and a candle. Jordan made a $35 margarita with Riazul anejo, cognac and gold leaf. I checked in on yelp and at 11:11 became the Duke of Topolobampo. Chef Rick and Deann came over and bowed when i told them my title. To celebrate Etta and I went for hotdogs at Gene’s and Jude’s, and in the morning had brunch with Meghan at Mixteco Grill.
