Wednesday Museum and Dinner Out

Every summer a few of the people on my team get together and go to a museum and then out to dinner. We went to the Kimball Art Museum in Fort Worth for the special exhibit "Picasso and Braque: The Cubist Experiment, 1910-1912". It was actually fascinating to learn the differences in technique between the two artists. Of course, going with an art teacher is always "educational".

The four of us continued our day with dinner at Joe T. Garcia's which we also enjoyed last year. It is a Mexican restaurant that has been open since 1935 and it is absolutely huge. The grounds are just stupendous; you feel like you are in a famous park. We sat inside this year since it was over 100 degrees outside. It was comfortably cool and we started with a round of their famous margaritas. Of course we also had the requisite tortilla chips and salsa.

We ordered dinner which is always a choice of two things; Family Dinner or Fajitas. Since there were 4 of us, we ordered one of each. The Family Dinner came with 2 cheese nachos, 2 cheese enchiladas, 2 beef tacos, rice, beans, and guacamole. The beef fajitas came with grilled strips of beef tenderloin, grilled onions, flour tortillas, rice, beans, guacamole, and pico-de-gallo. Even with 4 hungry women, we were completely unable to finish all the food that was brought to our table.

A wonderful day spent with great friends enriching our minds and satisfying our taste buds.
