After a lovely dinner at Rosario’s (I mean it! it was good, despite what that mean old Chris Chamberlain would have you believe), we decided to drop in to Edgehill Studios Cafe across the street to see who was playing. It was two guys who sounded pretty good so we stuck around, but we couldn’t determine what their names were — there didn’t seem to be a schedule posted anywhere. (We also spotted Karen Keely from 95.5 The Wolf hangin’ out with a “Cutie Wolf” t-shirt on.)

Anyway, one of the writers announced a song called “Makes Me Wanna Pray” by saying it was on hold with Martina McBride (and I couldn’t help but think of Lindsay). The song wasn’t bad, but I was more interested in how much he sounds like Collin Raye.

Both writers were enjoyable, but Collin Raye Guy got me curious so I looked him up. His name is Jared Johnson and it turns out he’s with Big Loud Shirt. Staff songwriter at Craig Wiseman’s company? Now that‘s a gig to have. I’m betting that “Pray” song gets cut, and I’m even betting it’s a single, and heck, why not, I’ll even bet that it charts. People seem to love sad songs that make them feel all holy.

Not that I’d want to be a staff writer, but still…

    Hey, I even said the tofu burrito wasn’t bad and thought about you while I was eating it. 8^)

    The rest of the food in the three visits I had, not so much.

    I stand by my review and wish them luck. I really wanted a good neighborhood Mexican restaurant, but after three strikes, I’ll never be able to talk RUABelle into going again. Bummer.

    Maybe I can get her to go to the coffee shop while I sneak across the street for another try…

    Yeah man, that tofu burrito was pretty kickass, I thought. Even Karsten liked it, and he doesn’t usually like tofu. And he got the veggie quesadilla, which was really tasty. And I thought the veggie mix and cactus salsa were good.

    My main complaint was with the chips and salsa. The mild salsa was a little too ketchup-y and the hot salsa was a little too much like eating straight hot sauce — that is, more heat than taste. And the chips were fried too hard. (Not that I didn’t eat too many anyway.)

    But otherwise, I really enjoyed it.
