Tacos and obliviousness (is that a word?)

Does everyone know about this $2 taco thing at Agave on Monday nights?

I only found out about it from, I think, former City Councillor Gary Roberts, who told me last fall that the council heads over there after their meetings.

I witnessed this phenomenon last night as I and a bunch of them wandered down Pleasant St. and stopped to admire the A-frame signs. I kid you - we were making sure none of them had current permit stickers.

Why were we doing this? The answer is a secret.

So back to tacos. I really like Agave, although it's a bit pricey. People try to steer me towards that other Mexican place in Salisbury, but I'm not a fan. I think it's called La Chaquita. (I only drive by it, you know, five or six times a month - why would I remember what it's called?)

Speaking of being oblivious and structures on Rte. 1, I used to look at this old broken down house when stopped at the light at .... errrrr ... the last light before you cross over into Seabrook.

The other day I noticed that it's not only gone, but there's no trace of its having ever been there. Which leads me to believe it must have been gone for some time since the scrub covers the whole area.

Yep, knew about the taco night at Agave...yum. I suggest washing them down with some of their fabulous red sangria. Or, a Mexican 43 margarita.

OK, now I'm hungry.

Weird. Just clicked on your link to the Agave website and...um...apparently it's been hijacked?!

Okaaay - it was fine when I linked to it, what? an hour ago.

Taco night at Agave is both Monday and Tuesday nights, and I've been regularly going since I moved here.

The way it works is you only get the special taco menu if you sit at either the 1st or 3rd floor bars; if you're at a table, you get the regular menu (which you can also request at the bar).

The taco menu has three choices: $2, $2.50, or $3; with basic taco fillings like beef and chicken at the lower end, and shrimp at the upper end.

I'll be there tonight around 8:45, probably on the top floor if I can find a seat.

It's Agave's site that's been hijacked.

Right, but it had not been hijacked at the time I linked to it, is my point. I had it up on my screen, searching for info about $2 tacos.
