2013 Blasters Concert at the Epic Lounge in Downey

We went and saw our long-time neighbors performing
live in their hometown.  The Blasters live a few doors from
me since I was 10 years old, but I never saw them until April 2013.

It was a fun concert, with some good bluesy rock and roll.
I have to say, as much as I enjoyed them, I had more fun
watching their warm-up act, the California Feetwarmers.

These guys play private parties and they play restaurants
and lounges here in LA on weekends.  Check 'em out:

2013 Spring Camporee

Here are the Townsends, some of our campers at this semi-annual event.  

The rigors of leadership take a real toll (not to mention getting no
sleep thanks to rowdy scouts who talk all night does not help).

Rocio's Mole de los Dioses

I'm not normally a food photographer, but I'll take this opportunity
to plug an establishment which is worthy of the share.  Pictured above
is the Tri-Tip Mole, one of the several types available.

Andrea's meal was shrimp something or other, beautiful and delicious.
These pics were taken in April of 2013, and unfortunately the place is under
new management (Rocio, the chef, is no longer in the picture).

It's a shame; our last visit was not quite the same.  Nonetheless,
if you are interested in some pre-columbian Mexican food,
which is nothing like the traditional burrito/taco/enchilada-type stuff,
it's still a good restaurant with good value.
