Thursday afternoon I had lunch with GeezBob at one of Los Angeles' classic Mexican restaurants -- El Cholo.
Such great food! Opened in the 1920s, El Cholo is going strong despite the economy.
It's a little hard for me to believe I first went there nearly 30 years ago, in 1980. One of my political mentors, Roman Buhler, used to enjoy having "strategy sessions" at El Cholo, not far from the USC campus. At the time, those dinners just seemed like the "height of sophistication" to me. (Getting served margaritas at 17 years of age probably didn't hurt my opinion of the place either.)
