May 5th, the celebration of Mexico's day of Independence, and with my family coming from Hispanic descent (a fact that my late Grandfather was very proud of), I headed downtown to the Cinco de Mayo celebration hosted by one of my favorite joints downtown - El Guapo's Cantina. Albeit, I met my parents down there a bit early, but we still have memories of Tulsa's Hispanic Festival that used to be hosted downtown, before gang violence brought an end to that event, and Cinco downtown was falling short of our expectations. A little too "Americanized" for us, but if that's your deal, then it's cool. As long as people get downtown and pump money into those establishments and support them, well then that's all I care about.
For this dinner the "T-Rex" was chosen. This bad boy comes with Momma's Red Sauce, pepperoni, sausage, salami, breakfast bacon, ham, and topped with cheddar cheese. This pie brings it, and if you're in the mood for pizza one night, then get your bones down to Joe Momma's and let this offering rock your face off.
As a side-note they also offer an "Incinerator Challenge." I'm not sure why, but this has my attention, and I'm thinking of gathering a support team and undertaking this challenge of my manhood. Basically, one hour to eat a large Incinerator (spicy red sauce, sliced hot link, pepperoni, salami, ham, crushed black pepper, diced jalapenos, sliced habaneros, ghost pepper sriracha, and a swirl of wasabi, with no liquid to cool the fire. And if you accomplish it? A T-shirt and your photo on the wall. It's amazing what a man is willing to do for a t-shirt, right? So, if I make the decision to step to the plate, I'll announce it here and will be asking for others to come out and support my attempt. Maybe we can make it interesting, and take pledges that if I can complete it, then money pledged will be donated to a worthy cause in T-town... just a random idea.
OK, there you have it. Get downtown, support all of them down there, and for the love of God, get you some pizza from Joe Momma's!!!!!!
GET IT HOW YOU LIVE!
