Boney dancers, easy rider and fresh philosophy

- A fun lunch with friend Leisa at The Bone Garden Cantina. There is a Day of the Dead theme in the artwork there, with whimsical murals and sculpture. A favorite mural shows some boney dancers frolicking overhead. Check out the photos section on the website for the fun photos of putting this place together.

- This easy rider hangs from the bar area. His motorcycle is a sculpture, too.

- The food is fresh, authentic Mexican food, cooked to order. Yum. The menu cover has the philosophy of the house, flatly stating that, “If your idea of Mexican food is ground beef in flour tortillas covered in melted yellow cheese, this might not be the place for you. …”

My daughter would love that place! She made a Day of the Dead banner that hangs on my mantel!

What fabulous work! My friend Louie would go nuts for that!

And how neat to get authentic food. I think a lot of people have never tasted the real food of different countries - just a watered down version that is NOTHING like the real thing.

Mama Zen -

It is much brighter inside that my camerawork shows. I didn't even scratch the surface with the photos.

You and Baby Puppy come up to Atlanta and visit and we'll go there!

Talon -

I think so, too. Their other restaurant, The Vortex, has a giant skull that you walk through. (Very urban hip area of town.)

The food there is great and relatively inexpensive.

What entertaining decor-
They seem to be stuck in eternal "Cinco de Mayo!"

Snaggle -

It is so much fun to go there. They routinely have special events, but I'm only there during lunchtime. I live 20 miles away from the area I work in. Kind of fun to work in an industrial area that has crazy restaurants and artisan shops all around it and then go home to the leafy 'burbs.

You discover and share the most interesting eateries, Lynn. Atlanta surely rocks!

It rocks for sure, Jannie. As does, Austin - I'm sure. xoxo
