When the bank account starts looking a little pathetic (about every week) I like to refer to my Groupon Account where i have several deals waiting to be used to “treat” myself to something fun. More times than not, i use a groupon to dine out.
Momma dukes wanted to hangout and who can blame her- she’s been laid up resting since her surgery. I happened to have a groupon for 5 burro cafe..but the Brooklyn location and she loves 5 burro cafe. So we slowly trekked (well, i trekked from Queens) to and area in between Downtown Brooklyn and Red Hook.
The dining area surrounding the bar is small but this location has a huge backyard and even a play area for kids! We were seated outside since it was pretty decent outside and noted the menu was the same as the other location… but is the FOOD gonna be the same???
Our chips and salsa came and so far the same freshly made salsa was disappearing at an alarming rate… perhaps we were really hungry or its just been too long since their delicious salsa has passed our lips. Whatevs. It was pretty tasty.
Here is a quick view of the backyard. and My mother chewing. Pretty hot mom right there. I noticed a few heaters so im thinking they hope to keep the backyard as an option in the cooler months…
Not wanting to be a lush in front of my mother i ordered a mini strawberry margarita with salt… and had no shame as i licked the salt off the rim and took greedy slurps of my margarita. Seriously, is there crack in this thing? Cuz I cant stop drinking it!
I only stopped myself when my mother made fun… she always brings me back to reality. But i own it! lol.
On our way out I noticed a sign that said all drinks at the bar were 2 for 1 at the bar ALL. THE. TIME. this is something that the Queens Location does not have… and I think 2 for 1 margaritas might bring me back ….
