Friday at Sabores I was joined by my friends Ileana, Luly, Paul, Rita and others for a night of fun and karaoke. Ileana, a renown portrait artist, was also there for a Salvador Dali art exposition the following evening.
As usual, there was a lot of joking and laughs and we are becoming more and more accustomed to getting an outside table for the fresh air and to dim the din of the music.
The night turned into an all-nighter as I joined my partners-in-crime, Luly and Paul, to go bar hopping and we headed toward a known late night watering hole. Unfortunately, the element that was standing outside encouraged us to look for a more suitable location.
We headed for the airport hotels which usually have a bar, but once again, we were foiled. I haven't been to the airport area in many mango seasons, and since they don't let me out of the home much, I enjoyed the excursion.
It seems, however, that most people are sleeping at 3 a.m. Hunger overpowered our search for another bar, so we stopped in at Denny's and ate breakfast. All and all, it was a great evening and I got home around 4 a.m.
For those that would like to see Ileana's work and more pictures, you can go to her blog at http://chica1665.blogspot.com/2016/
The News As I See It: The Republicans and Democrats held their debates last week with Republicans debating Tuesday night with two-tiered time slots because of the many candidates.
The Democratic debate was on Saturday evening, conveniently taking the time slot right after the NFL playoff games. They don't seem to want much publicity given the candidates.
I was amused when ABC announcer said the debate would have all the candidates. Yep, all three (3). The queen, Crazy Bernie and Martin O.Malley, whose presence seemed to be an afterthought.
One of Bernie's better remarks was when he questioned Hillary receiving $600,00 for speaking engagements from Goldman Sachs, a wall street giant who Hillary professes to be against.
A new poll shows that in the last month, Hillary Clinton's lead in Iowa has shrunk from 9 percent to 2 percent. Meanwhile, her fake smile has grown 200 percent.
An NFL player is about to become a father for the 12th time with nine different women. So, he was traded to the NBA.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A man went to the doctor complaining of insomnia. The doctor gave him a thorough examination and found absolutely nothing physically wrong with him.
