This meetup heralds some changes-- a new host in Starla, more meetups with smaller group sizes for each one-- and what better place to start it than the best Mexican place in mid-Missouri? Las Margaritas does creditable Tex-Mex, but it shines in the interior Mexican specialties-- cochinita pibil (pork cooked in a banana leaf) (get the tacos, not the burrito), arroz con pollo, enchiladas suizas, alambres, and (while it's still a little chilly) posole (they spell it pozole).
Urbanspoon (less wonderful reviews there)
I wish I was going, but I'm hosting sushi the next night. Please see my email (that I'll send later this evening, after I send this announcement out) about the informal policy regarding the dual meetups in the same week as well as the money issue that arose sooner than I figured.
