Nacho with nachos and followed by nachos

alamo.jpgThe 1:45 showing at the Alamo on Lamar was sold out and so was the one following it. We were at the earlier one, and the audience was of all ages and included many children. Nachos with Nacho Libre led some to order nachos after Nacho Libre. We walked from the Alamo to Maudie’s and indulged. Several of the businesses sharing the Lamar Plaza shopping center with the Alamo offer discounts upon the showing of a movie-ticket stub. Here are five things we liked about Nacho Libre: (1) the song that included the lyric “my love is like the nectar from a fruit that is forbidden,” (2) the tiny crazy caveman luchadores, (3) the salads individuated by ever more elaborate faces composed using the ingredients, (4) Nacho’s three-wheeled motorized conveyance, and (5) the fact that Austin’s own Little Joe should earn some music royalties from this movie. At Maudie’s, the acoustics were as bad as ever, the crowds were as large, the salsa for the chips was a bit on the salty side, the pico de gallo (salsa cruda) was beautiful and freshly made, the waitstaff was as great as ever, and the crowd was as much an Austin cross-section as ever, with some sitting at the bar watching the Copa Mondial. Maudie’s is now a wireless hotspot, so beware of eavesdroppers blogging about what you say.
