dinner at Tanzitaro Mexican restaurant

note:  i have been unable to confirm as of today whether Mom's Old Recipe Mexican Restaurant is still open.  i am moving the dinner to another Mexican restaurant where we had our Cinco de Mayo dinner in 2010, just 3 block away from Mom's.  sorry for any confusion.

dear friends—

in celebration of Cinco de Mayo, our weeknight dinner next month will be on Thursday, May 3, starting at 7:00, at Tanzitaro, 6075 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60646, [masked]http://www.tanzitaro.com/ , suggested by Cande.

reservation will be under the name of Rick Malkowski.  to make things run more smoothly, I strongly recommend that you have enough cash to pay the bill:  some restaurants don't like splitting up credit card charges.

If you have a coupon you’d like to use at this or any other dinner, please check with me first.  If I have a coupon for the whole group to use, and there is a limit of one per table, the group coupon will take priority.  If not, feel free to use yours.

hope to see you and bon appetit ,

    Great group of friendly people, but I thought the food was just kind of meh. The tortilla soup did not compare with other restaurants' versions (the old Chon y Chono in Little Village excelled at this dish) and the tamale dough was undercooked. Other people ordered full platters which looked delicious, so I may have just chosen the wrong stuff. All this was a minor note, though, compared with the overall enjoyability of the evening. I plan to attend more of Rick's meetups, for sure!

    I hope this will be OK: I'm dressing for the weather, meaning hiking shorts and a windbreaker. I'll be CTA all the way and fully expect to get soaked. See you all soon!
