The One with Simple Pleasures

Is it weird to be so flippantly excited over a restaurant opening? But I'm not talkin' just any plain-ol' restaurant, I'm talkin' CAFE RIO BABY!!!!!

Thanks to a Facebook tip by my in-the-know friend Lyndsey, I have something to look forward to for many weekends to come:

That phone call was THE most important phone call of my life. Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit....Still, I was so excited when someone answered my call (which I wasn't expecting because they're not even open until 10:30, I was just hoping for a voicemail message) and I asked in an all-too-eager voice, "Is this location open yet?"
"Yes ma'am! We just opened yesterday!"
"Ahhhhhh! I'm so excited, I'll see you soon!"
"We'll be waiting for you!"
Hehe.

Is 26.8 miles too far to drive for a smothered pork burrito?

HECK NO!

My taste buds are going CRAZY in anticipation for Saturday. It has been far too long since my last Cafe Rio encounter. Over six months in fact. That's just crazy. I can't even fathom that it's been six months since I've eaten the best burritos known to man. We even have a free meal card to use! ("FREE MEAL!!")
Anybody wanna come??

lol you are cracking me up!! wow, glad i could make your life. 26.8 miles is a lot shorter than driving all the way to lake forest.

LOL. You are SO funny! I was seriously laughing out loud at this post. I hear you though. A good burrito is hard to find! ;-) And I would LOVE to come with you. Road trip, Baby! :D

Simple pleasures are the best ones...and I reckon it's totally worth driving 26.8 miles for. I would love to join you (even though I'm not entirely sure what a smothered pork buritto is...)but I think an across 'The Pond' trip would be going a wee bitty too far...!!

I miss Cafe Rio! They don't have any here in Omaha. Maybe I'll open one and make millions!
