The Gig

I found the guitar cases that the wandering mariachis stashed during their shift.

Bu the main thing is that I can’t even think about this restaurant without thinking about Lyle Lovett’s masterful rhyme in his song “San Antonio Girl.”

Well it was late by then
We should have turned it in
But she was hungry
And I was interested
In Mi Tierra’s
Huevos Rancheros
We took some Polaroids
Right at the table

I mean, really – rhyming “Mi Tierra’s” and “Huevos Rancheros.” Genius.

The Server’s Breakfast


Mi Tierra is open all night; there’s no way to tell if it’s 9:40 in the morning or at night.

The best thing about stopping here is that it reminds me of a song, which is a shocking revelation to my friend Ehpem. Lyle Lovett’s song “San Antonio Girl” rhymes “Mi Tierra’s and “huevos rancheros”, a rhyme scheme that’s unexpected to say the least.
