JUST BEFORE THE RAIN
Our friends, Susan and Lance, made it in the nick of time this weekend as their Cinco de Mayo party in Centennial allowed guests to mingle in the driveway and experience Taco Mojo's new taco cart catering option. Guests enjoyed grilled citrus chicken, steak adobo, and a wide variety of salsas, as well as a couple of new mojo sauces, including a roasted strawberry mojo, red chile-peanut mojo, and the tried-and-true mango mojo. By positioning the cart to back up to the open garage, we took on a little rain with minimal disturbance.The tacos must go on.
HOW TO HAVE A PARTY DESPITE THE RAIN
Over the years, we have found that guests have an undeniable compulsion to hang out in the kitchen. Our theory is that dining rooms and family rooms may just feel too formal for guests who see themselves as low-key and laid-back. Susan and Lance inadvertently accommodate this very tendency by clearing and sweeping out the garage, and setting out a few chairs. And as you would suspect, with the taco cart positioned next the garage to avoid the light sprinkle of rain, guests found their way to the cart and on into the garage for a low-key, laid-back street food environment for the rest of the evening.
