Thursday we went with a group to Santa Prissa for Pazole Thurday. Here in the state of Guerrero Thursday is the day Pazole is prepared and served in most of the restaurants. Santa Prissa is only open on Thursday and as expected Pazole is the specialty.
.Pazole is a rich stew of hominy and pork or chicken in a sauce of your choice red white or green. Along with the bowl of pazole is a platter of chile rellenos, taquitos, chips,
guacamole and pico de gillo We were a group of ten and arrived early enough to ensure a
decent table, not too close to the music and not in the warm sun.
The music of Zihua Juanito was wonderful, the food excellent, even managed to stuff in an ice cream desert and of course the company made the day memorable.
Friday was St. Patrick’s day, but also the birthday of local musician Steve Calvert. Rossy’s, where he performs weekends including this day , was the location of this event. I think almost every musician in Zihuatanejo showed up and joined in at one point or another. We have been long time fans of Steve and Friends starting back when they played regularly at Pacalos. It was a fun evening crowded with the
local crowd and the snowbirds that haven’t left yet. This is the time of year when the snowbirds start to migrate back north. While the crowd has become quite gray, they still dance with the same enthusiasm they did in there youth. Steve and Friends make us all feel young, at least for an evening.
Saturday morning I decided I would hike up to the “Parthenon”, and abandoned Villa built by a former Acapulco Chief of Police with embezzled funds. It was here
he entertained friends and associates with extravagant dinners and parties. It was a 1.5 mile up hill hike only to be told not today but manana. If you have spent anytime in Mexico you have learned “manana does not necessarily mean tomorrow, it just means not today”. At least I got my exercise in for today, and maybe I will try again tomorrow. Signing off KO
