So long, summer. Seafair has come and gone. The Summer Olympics have concluded. And the presidential candidates have been decided. So, what’s the next big event?

Atmosphere: Taqueria La Venadita is a hole-in-the-wall authentic Mexican restaurant if ever I saw one. The lighting is dim and the sign out front is easy to miss. But boy, that would be your loss. Inside, the walls are peach-toned and decorated with Mexican landscapes. A TV in the corner was set to le Telemundo, and the show on while I was there was some sort of soap opera. At the front of the restaurant there is a big menu board with prices and also some photos of some of the more popular items, which comes in handy since many the menu items are in Spanish. There is plenty of seating there, mostly cafeteria style tables and heavy chairs.
