california + cafe rio?! and i like to spread rumors.

while we were in california, we visited cafe rio. it's new to southern cal. being at cafe rio while in california was like being in an alternate universe, especially because i know the person managing the location in manhattan beach, ca. so i was all weirded out.

for those who don't know, cafe rio is a cute little 'mexican' restaurant which started in my home town, saint george, utah and has now expanded to several states. i am happy and sad about this. happy because...

i told my friend (the manager) i am living in dc and he said a cafe rio is coming to washington, dc. yep.
read more about it here and here if you want to continue to spread the gossip.

me and my taste buds are really stoked.

Oh all our favorite things have to grow up someday.

This reminds me of a friend who was sad that her favorite band was signing with a major label. "It means that more people will like them besides just me!" It's silly, and yet it makes perfect sense.

Just had Cafe Rio tonight. It's heaven.

My family has been eating at Cafe Rio forever. Since the singular St. George location days. We feel some strong loyalty.

I imagine this is how the CA kids felt when In And Out came to Utah....
