Light Up Night

Pittsburgh has an annual Light Up Night downtown where they light the tree, open the ice skating rink, have fireworks, etc. This year there were thousands of people and it was cold, but nice to see people coming together and enjoying the city. Made me feel all warm and cozy despite the snow.

Afterward we went to Mexico City (over on Smithfield Ave) who have some of the best authentic Mexican food in Pittsburgh (probably the best I've ever eaten). Our friend was photographing the new menu items and we got to taste test them and it's BYOB so we brought a bottle of wine to share with the owners and they did us the honor of sitting down to dinner with us. We finished everything. It was a fabulous night.

I'm jealous of your life. Green with envy - kind of a shade of guacamole.

Totally love Mexico City. My office is right next door to it. It's amazing that I'm not 250 lbs. by now.

Light Up Night was cold, eh?
