December 04 – Tonight was the popular Festival of Lights Parade on Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs. The Blue Coyote Grill is located on the parade route. Ken and I had enjoyed their great Taco Salad a number of years ago and our taste buds were just watering to go their again. We invited friends to join us at the Blue Coyote before the parade; the plan being to leave our cars in their parking lot and to move out on the street in front of the grill to watch the parade.

Enjoying dinner - on the left: Chris and Mark. Barb and Mitch (right end) were in town for just a couple of nights before leaving on a cruise and they stayed with friends Moreen and Renny seated at the end of the table. On the right: Joe and Pam; Julie; and Ken.

Here’s that wonderful Steak Tostado Salad!! Note the shell is tinted red. That's because it is a Chipotle Tortilla Shell.

Here I am thanking the waiter for good service with a smile! My appearance is deceiving – I really didn’t have THAT MANY Margaritas!!

It was a lot of fun at the Blue Coyote -- and D E L I C I O U S!!!

The plan worked!! We all moved out onto the sidewalk and watched the parade. The Festival of Lights Parade lived up to its name -- everything and everyone in the parade was covered with lights!

Lots of trucks above!!
