At least once a year, we go to Puerto Nuevo for lobsters. It's a long drive for lobsters but it's well worth it.
Happy birthday Carlo!

Watching the JBWKZ, Supercrew, Fanny Pak and others...
**Update: The headliners were the JBWKZ, Supercrew, Fanny Pak, BreakSk8 and ASIID. Special guests were Fish n Chicks and Kaba Modern. Some guy also performed, Colby something... Best time ever (except for all the screaming).

For the entrees, my parents decided to go with the "109 for 2" which is a 32 oz. bone-in rib-eye with mashed potatoes. My brothers each ordered the Flatiron Steak and I went with the quail fry. Let's start with my parent's dish. OMG, biggest steak I've seen. The bone was probably as long as my arm from elbow to fingertip. It was a serious piece of steak. I think my parents only had half. My brothers, on the other hand, demolished their steaks in half the time it took me to eat my quail. It did look quite appetizing with the onions and the corn. I'll have to order that next time. My quail was surprisingly good. I've had quail before that's a little chewy so I wasn't expecting anything with my dish. Boy, was I wrong! The quail was juicy and succulent and I couldn't stop eating. The dish had some bacon on the side to temper the heaviness of the quail - perfect pairing.

We had the tres leches cake for dessert. Not that much of a revelation but I also think that we were all pretty stuffed at that point. The dessert was just an obligatory gesture to celebrate my brother's birthday. Happy Birthday again James!!!
