Gooo for the guacamole

The margaritas at Cantina Laredo are awesome, but our very fave thing — the chunky guacamole made tableside by our waiter Ryan Kliolz. (We’ll be back for that.)

He also shot our photo: Dixey Thornton (clockwise from right seated), Marti Westmoreland and hubby Dr. Bud Westmoreland, Harvey Anne Leimbrook and me with hubby, Paul L. Schuetze.

And we were impressed that owner Chris McJunkins was mixing and mingling, being sure everything was taken care of and seeing people to their tables.

"It is just like a big party," said Leimbrook.

And, so it was.

Across the way, people stopped by the table of Bob and Molly Stewart and, a few steps back of us, Keitha Avant.

Up high on another level, Times staffers and a pal, sipping sangria or strawberry margaritas, waved to us: Nishia Livingston, Janelle Rucker, Ashley Northington, Donecia Pea and Vanessa Deggins.

Speaking of the Cantina, with its levels for eating, bar in the center and the upscale decor, it is reminiscent of a big-city restaurant. You can also eat outside. (Since, we also judge an eatery by its loos, we gotta tell you that the "women’s" was stunningly sophisticated in all black with a bouquet of seasonal white flowers on a counter. The guys swore to us that there are televisions over the urinals in the men’s.)

So, what are your favorite hot spots and why? Favorite bathrooms? And why!

Cantina Laredo has definitely become my new favorite restaurant. The food, the drinks and yes, the bathrooms, are all really good. It was good seeing you there Maggie!
