Cuban Food

There is a Cuban restaurant in our neighborhood called La Taza de Cafe that is positively delightful. Every Tuesday and Wednesday there is a buffet with such options as Arroz con Pollo, Veggie Empanadas and Platanos Maduros. Best part about this buffet is that they bring everything to you. Their mojitos are quite good as well, which reminds me ... I have developed an exploratory addiction to the crazy flavors of gum Orbitz has to offer; I would recommend "Mint Mojito."

Halloween is quickly approaching and while I have not yet settled on a costume (though Sarah Palin is continuously suggested), other preparations are being made. We are planning a bit of a "Haunted House" film festival for our apartment, and this list has proven exceptionally helpful.

And you know who likes Halloween? The members of Shiloe, who dressed up as the cast of Back to the Future for their recent CD Release Party. We released Shiloe's new EP, ...And Now the Screaming Starts yesterday. It is a dark record built around driving rhythms that recall Sleater Kinney and Sonic Youth. If you are planning a Halloween party, this might fit well in the mix.

Our busy Fall is almost done, with just one more record to go. I will be making a rather brief trip to LA next week for the Tigers Can Bite You CD Release Party. If you are in LA, you should come by and say hello.

I am looking forward to Hallowe'en this year, should be a good time. Planning to go as Strawberry Shortcake.

I am listening to Shiloe's mypsace page right now. Or I will in a minute if my work computer decides to play nice.

Oooh, Owls on the cover art! I would buy the album on that alone. ;)

I am so behind on the Hallowe'en countdown this year. I even missed the local zombie walk.

I should be ashamed of myself.

Nice to know that La Taza is a good place - I haven't been there yet.
