It’s spring here on the ‘Cullough. And do you know how I know?

For a quick Panchitos fix, visit the “Food to Go” room

I’m about to tell you something that if you didn’t already know, may be dangerous knowledge.

Did you know Panchitos does carry out AKA food to go?

They definitely don’t advertise it. I thoroughly searched their website and couldn’t find anything about it.

I have to say, for me, 75% of the Panchitos experience is being AT Panchitos and soaking up the Panchy atmosphere. BUT sometimes you crave the food. And when you crave the food (and you’re alone), you might just want to take it home.

I only knew the Food to Go room existed because in the past 6 months or so a door has appeared at the back end of the restaurant.

FOOD TO GO.
Not unlike the Room of Requirement in Harry Potter, I’m pretty sure this door is visible to only those who truly need it.

And Sunday night I truly needed it.

I needed a poco de mexico in the worst way.
poco
So I made the call. After ordering, the girl on the other end just said OK bye. So I figured, it’s just a poco de mexico, how long can it take to make? I’ll head over right now.

I’m glad I did so I could spend a few minutes in that sacred “Food to Go” room.

Check out that poster-size menu!!

Here is the view from behind the counter. The Food to Go room is tucked away just to the side of the kitchen. I could feel the happy vibes coming from inside the dining room.

Who made that poster and where can I get one?

I paid then waited for approximately 3 minutes and then my to-go poco was brought out and I HIT IT so I could get home and EAT!

Obviously the presentation isn’t amazing. I mean they have to cram a little bit of ALL of Mexico in there. Please note the bucket of queso. I was so happy. I also was given two small containers of salsa. yAy!

And done.
I really tried to make a dent in that queso but I was running out of things to dip.

Sorry I’m not sorry that I just shared how quick and easy it is to get your Panchitos fix and eat it in the luxury of your own home.

Now the one outstanding question is this: Can you get 2$ margaritas to go and how many are you allowed and if I brought my own seal-able plastic bag could I put the glass in or just pour the marg straight in the bag and if I return the glass can I knock a dollar off of the price like they do at the cold press juice stores?

 

Spring Break 2K14 Gets Trashy

While many ‘Cullough coeds are romping around on their wild spring break 2K14 adventures, some of us are left behind to keep the neighborhood running. Lucky for us, SPRING BREAK FOR EVERRRR coincided with another celebration of excess and waste: heavy trash day.

Heavy trash day is where you place all your unwanted heavy trash, i.e. old chair, microwave, toilet on the curb and in the middle of the night St. ‘Cullough comes and takes it all back to his lair. Something like that.

For people like Roy, this really is like Christmas. She left for a run one night and came back with a large dirty brown suitcase that is now holding up one of our mannequins. This is the life I have chosen for myself.

So the next day I did a little investigating myself. Because it’s SPRINGGG BREAKKKK and I can do what I want!!!!

These mattresses obviously needed to be thrown out…there’s no sleeping during SB2K14!!!
trash_tv
Here I found a TV, a dresser, and some other things. Shit’s getting wild.

So I decided to do what any hot spring breaker would do in this situation..

Spotted: Girls huddling around ice cream cooler

ValeroICECREAM
Spotted: 3 girls huddling around the ice cream cooler at One-Pump Valero. Also 1 boy.
Facts: It was a Monday night, about 9:30PM CST. It was approximately 39 degrees Fahrenheit outside.
Special notes: One girl in a white beanie broke from the group to get a bottle of red wine. The group settled on a half gallon of Blue Bell’s Cookies and Cream ice cream after much debate.

Why are these 3 girls and their male chaperone roaming the ‘Cullough on a weeknight? Why are they forging for ice cream and wine at One-Pump Valero?
