Thanks for the Burrito Famous review Melissa!  Like yourself, I've never tried Burrito Famous and maybe because I absolutely LOVE Chipotle!  I think maybe I should give it a shot as well...after reading your review sounds like I will discover yet another really good Mexican hot spot!!  I always order  the pork for my bowl, but I've often thought Chipotle should have fresh fish I'm dying to try BF's Baya fish with "their" guac and sauces.  Sounds yum ;)  Now, I can't wait to try BF too!!

I heard Warren Zevon sing his great ode to sports The Hockey Song about a frustrated hockey player the other day and my heart hurt thinking about all the great musicians that have passed the past year.  This music composer has an amazing catalog of really smart, clever songs and they all make me sit up straight and listen to what this songwriter has to say..


120717ZevonFew of rock & roll's great misanthropes were as talented, as charming, or as committed to their cynicism as Warren Zevon. A singer and songwriter whose music often dealt with outlaws, mercenaries, sociopaths, and villains of all stripes, Zevon's lyrics displayed a keen and ready wit despite their often uncomfortable narrative circumstances, and while he could write of love and gentler emotions, he did so with the firm conviction that such stories rarely end happily.

Warren Zevon was friends with Miami writer Carl Hiassen and Hiassen's talents must have rubbed off on Lawyers, Guns, and Money as Mr. Zevon tells an amazing story of South American drugs, deceit, espionage with an incredible, memorable, recognizable musical opening:

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this
- Laywers Gun & Money
--Warren Zevon 


What's for lunch GLOBers?  I'm thinking a bowl of chili with beans sounds perfect for this crummy weather. Let's meet up and I will bring all the brain food you can consume fresh and ready to enjoy . . .
