Side note: I think I may need to invest in my own lava-rock mortar given my avocado obsession. (hint hint J, my birthday is coming up)
A group of us had been planning a dinner out for the last few weeks and I was so excited when Anejo was offered up as the place to go. Then the floods happened. Fourth Street and many of it's residents and businesses suffered greatly as a result. Water damage to loss of power, you name it, it wasn't pretty. With doors closed to the public, those same businesses put on rubber boots and face masks, ready to assist in the clean up of their community. That's what we Calgarians do after all, we are a resilient city.
After a week of being without power, Anejo was finally able to open their doors last night and once again serve up some modern Mexican dishes. #winning, and just in time.
We've done an excellent job in the last 10 days assisting our fellow neighbours in bringing Calgary back to normalcy. Equally important is supporting our local small businesses. So I urge you to go to Anejo, have brunch, lunch, or dinner, some tequila, and leave with a more than happy belly.
