Grapefruit.....

8:36 am - Wednesday - Weather: Sunny, clear blue skies, no wind, 45 degrees.  Ever get tired of perfect weather?  No, me neither.....I just need something to complain about once and a while.

Tuesday was a perfect day for me.....I tuned up 3 bikes for friends, and cleaned my Intense 5.5 up from our trip to Mammoth.  I had the tunes going all day in the trailer, and the time just melted away......one of my favorite ways to spend a day.  TLE spent the day reading (one of her favorite things to do), and running a few loads of wash through the splendid Splendide.

Around 4 pm we mounted our trusty Cannondales and rode 4.6 miles (we covered about 9.3 miles in all) out to Meyers to try a new to us restaurant, Verde Mexican Rotisserie.  We had seen this restaurant across US-50 from Getaway Cafe for the past two summers, but had never given it a try until Tuesday.  Yelp gives them 4.5 stars on 145 reviews.....that's pretty impressive, and so is their food!   I ordered two fish tacos, and TLE a chicken quesadilla.....we both loved our entrees.  In addition they do offer four draft brews......Corona, Pacifico, Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin (IPA), and a fourth I cannot remember......why?  Well, I stopped at the Ballast Point offering and decided on a pint to chase my food......TLE ordered the same, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.....there is just a hint of grapefruit in the background.  A very refreshing brew!  Ironically, the Ballast Point website suggests paring this offering with fish.....



......and, by the way, the fish tacos and quesadilla were wonderful.  We ate alfresco.....no surprise there......and sat in the shade of a market umbrella enjoying the evening air for over an hour before beginning the return ride to TVC.  We had a little head wind on the way out to Meyers, so it was nice to be chased home by a tailwind!

For an encore we decided to have a fire, drink some grapefruit (see a trend here?) margaritas, and smoke (me) a couple of cigars........


.....as I have said before, a great day deserves an appropriate ending!  We sat by the fire until almost 8 pm listening to music, and just enjoying the Tahoe air.....there is nothing like it.

Thanks for stopping by!
