BREAKDOWNS = BLESSINGS, WITH BUDDIES, BEER AND TORTILLA-WRAPPED BLISS
Sometimes even the shittiest of situations can turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Take, for example the current rear-wheel bearing mishap with Phat Tony’s vibrant VW, leaving him stranded near Baldwin Beach in Paia. A walk over to Charley’s in Paia to kill time at the bar–while waiting for me, to the Toyo rescue–resulted in a happy, chance meeting with some good Keokea Ultimate Frisbee buddies.
Our friends there to indulge in Charley’s Taco Tuesdays, we naturally joined in on the fun too. While my slightly drunk (thanks, Mike) photo does little to convey the true taco tastiness, the table’s foodie consensus was resoundingly positive–friends enjoying taco stuffings from bean to pork to chicken. The thumbs-up commentary says quite a bit, considering the conversation circled rather critically around other culinary topics. At just $2.50 a pop with Mexican beers just $3, this is a Tuesday hotspot worth checking out.
