Curse You, La Lechuza! //

“Peggy Hill’s got NOTHING on me!” Listen to Patrice have a panic attack trying (or not trying) to pronounce Spanish words while talking about the best incantations there are for running Lechuza-s, or anyone, off!

South of What Border Now? //

If you spent your childhood on family treks up and down I-95, you know what South of the Border I’m talking about. Here’s a short history of the most bizarre bazaar of a rest stop in the South. (And yes, I do think it’s a little bit racist. (It’s a lot racist.) But it weirdly has a history of pretty antiracist action.)



Spicy Mango Margarita

By Bartender Courtney


  • 2 oz silver tequila
  • 2 oz lime juice

  • Tajin


  1. Prepare margarita glass by using cut lime to rim the glass and dip glass into Tajin
  2. Muddle jalapeno slices in shaker
  3. Fill shaker with ice
  4. Add all ingredients except club soda
  5. Shake-a shake-a shake-a
  6. Pour into prepared glass
