Saturday, May 19th — 4th GRADE FIESTA

For a moment, just a moment, you set down the margarita, because the taco, folded perfectly over a spoonful of spicy guacamole, simply cannot be put down. And because your best friends are coming in for a hug and to hand you the shot they’ve brought you. It would be rude not to accept it. You trust that no one will take the margarita, as it rests on the deck rail behind you, alone, under the setting sun. Because who would steal your 3/4 full margarita on the rocks? No one would, not at Casa Naidoo/Bari, not on this magical Sábado with mariachi stylings at full volume. Not while you’re getting this hug and taking this shot in the midst of all your dancing Chabot brethren. And sure enough, when you turn around once more, there it is, adorned with those beads of condensation and the crescent salt rim already half licked by yourself, and you smile even as you bite that taco. Two chews in and you’ve returned and recovered the salty, limey thing, and you sip it, tenderly, to chase the guacamole and the fresh-cut jalapeños, and all is right in the universe. These things, and all of us, await you at this year’s Fiesta, brought to you by Naidoo-Bari-Fernandez-Boyd-Wu-Venables-Pratt-Devries-Thomas-Herman. Socks optional.
