February 21, 2008 Tex-Mex is a popular destination restaurant in the area. They have wondrous burritos. I already know what I am going to order. A carnita burrito. It's fried pork, so it crunches like popcorn, but soothes like straight lard. I usually get the half-size, but I am feeling pretty amazing tonight, I might just upgrade to the Monster size. More than a pound of burrito. More than a pound of happiness. All slathered in cheese sauce.
Whenever I step inside it looks like a minor Hamilton convention. Uniquely, Tex-Mex is even a popular destination with Hamilton College staff, meaning it can sometimes look like a boardroom, with students falling over tables trying to eavesdrop. It's the truth, the architects of Hamilton College's day-to-day plot their on-campus magic over burritos. I anticipate one day receiving a library notice with dried cheese sauce caked on it.
