Lazy Mex Lounge

I admit it, every now and then I do take a siesta. On Saturdays I wear an oversided straw hat and im known to knock down tequila straight out the bottle. I'm a burrito bean eating, Mass-church going, thick mustache having kinda Mexican. Pos nimodo, as my Ama used to say. That got me thinking as I was surging on Flickr, some stereotypes, pos, they are just plain-ol true.

I'm not sure when it closed down or what it is now, but the name still upsets and irritates some. I however, am not part of that vocal minority. I snicker at it, for sure. Just wish it was still open today, so I could take a siesta and drink some mezcal (a poco no?).
