La Cucaracha Mexican Restaurante
Register on Meetup.com
It’s time again for our monthly Happy Hour at La Cucaracha, a friendly and highly regarded Mexican restaurant located on Dale Street and Grand Avenue in St. Paul (https://www.lacucaracharestaurante.com/)
This month’s event should be extra special, and not just because it falls on April Fool’s Day: Suellen, our co-host, will be celebrating her birthday this month and she’s thinking about bringing cupcakes to share. So something extra to look forward to!
Because of the continuing Covid-19 pandemic and the fact that this event is held indoors, we ask that all participants be fully vaccinated–that they have completed the established one or two-shot vaccination regimes at least two weeks before the event. If you can’t satisfy this requirement, please consider joining us instead for our online Happy Hour and a Half events held at 5 PM on the third Friday of each month.
For those of you who can be with us at La Cucaracha, we’ll have our normal Happy Hour fare–lots of talk about politics, the state of the world, movies, books, popular culture–accompanied by chips, salsa, and all the beer and other potables you’d care to drink. Most of us will order dinner from La Cucaracha’s selection of fine Mexican food, but feel free to join us even if you’re not up for that much eating. Parking is sporadically available on Grand Avenue, Dale Street, and neighborhood streets south of Grand. La Cucaracha’s management says they can accommodate a group of whatever size, so feel free to bring your friends.
Still not convinced? Take a look at this article in a recent issue of The Atlantic that documented the benefits of social drinking: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2021/07/america-drinking-alone-problem/619017/.
That piece renewed my interest in beer, moderately imbibed!
