The last seven days have featured both the worst margarita and queso I've ever had, and some of the best. It wasn't planned, just happened that way.

The worst was at a Cancun off the interstate in Knoxville. Why, Nicki, why did you go? Because it was a big group, and certain members felt Cancun was a safe bet, and there was really no stopping the momentum. The margaritas were straight from the bottle of pre-mixed, while the queso was Velveeta without the orange coloring.

Back at home and once again in charge of my own destiny, I joined a group on the patio at Local Taco for queso and margaritas. Real lime juice in the 'ritas, nice flaky salt on the glass. Cream in the queso, with a whisper of heat from ... is that a roasted poblano? Ah, it's good to be home. Even the light is more attractive.

Bring your best and worst to weekly open thread.
