Cilantro and Happy hour too...

Happy hour at Cilantro-- Sangria time! Had a delicious dinner with my friend Maryann at Cilantro tonight. She had Cameroon, shrimp something, and I had the Peruvian stew. Super yummy. Got a little crowded too which I was happy to see. It was a nice happy hour, especially the sangria. It hit the spot. Great place to hang out after work, I'll definitely be back. I need to try the paella.
