On Friday we drove through John Wayne airport to pick up Michelle from Denver, then we were on the way to Hollywood. After breezing through the race expo, meeting up with several other running buddies here and there, and eating a late lunch, it was already dinner time.Elizabeth and I met up with Dianne and Chris at Tortilla Republic in West Hollywood. The restaurant is run by Mayuret, the sister of my good friend Christine! Mayuret and her staff took great care of us! If you're a foodie and you find yourself in West Hollywood, you must try Tortilla Republic. This hip, upscale Mexican restaurant boasts a unique decor and equally unique dishes. I had a jalapeño margarita and hibuscus flower enchiladas. We shared churros and a flourless chocolate cake (yummy and cinnamon-y) for dessert. And then we were stuffed and ready to turn in for the night.
