From The New York Shitty Photo Pool, Part II: Ms. Colombia!

Ms. Columbia was at the Mermaid Parade - 2013

This is one of the “Stuff That Makes Miss Heather Happy” files: Elmhurst’s very own Oswaldo Gomez (usually known as Ms. Colombia) making an appearance at this year’s Mermaid Parade! Now this is in and of itself awesome. But what makes this photo (which UrbanPhotoz was kind enough to let me post) extra super special is Oswaldo was hospitalized not terribly long ago. It’s great to see she’s back and as happy as ever!

 

Quicklink: A Visit To Carino

I have yet to try out the Southside’s newest Mexican restaurant (and brainchild of the former staff of Bonita): Carino. I was reminded of this this morning by NYC Food Guy who brought a video of his recent visit to this establishment to my attention. While I can’t honestly say I am too excited about chorizo (I’m a vegetarian), I know a number of you undoubtedly will be. So without further ado here it is. Enjoy!

Southside Restaurant Watch: Carino Restaurant & Cantina

Today when I walked by 82 South 4 Street, the site of Latitude Zero I noticed, well, that it wasn’t there. This place will soon be Carino. Curious to know what gives I asked a gentleman on site. He happened to be one of the owners— and a really nice guy.

Here’s the scoop: Carino is the brainchild of the former managers of the now defunct Bonita. They have brought together much of the staff from the latter establishment and hope to open on April 27. The possible hang-up: they need to install the dishwasher and build customized shelving around it so as to be “up to code”. That’s it. All the necessary permits are in place.

But let’s get down to brass tacks. I asked this gentlemen:

Will you be serving cheese enchiladas?

His answer: YES!

And so my quest for a decent cheese enchilada marches bravely (and optimistically) forward…
