We went out to our favorite Mexican restaurant tonight. It was very cold on the way, and then the restaurant (which is in a storefront) was busy, and with people coming and going the draft from the front door kept the room from getting warm. The food was good, though, and the most interesting thing was that they left a pepper grinder on the table, but instead of black pepper it was filled with dried habanero pepper. Muy picante! Their red house wine reminded us of Sangre de Toro (bull's blood), a wine which we enjoyed at a restaurant in San Francisco a few years ago. That was a memorable night: the cab ride back to the hotel on the hilly S.F. streets seemed like something out of Bullitt. The amount of Sangre de Toro consumed might have had something to do with that.

A police helicopter has been buzzing the area for the past 15 minutes. I wish it would buzz off!
