The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Guac On The Rock At La Cava Del Tequila

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Unlike some of my other new drinking and dining experiences, I was already a huge fun of La Cava del Tequila going into this trip. It’s the site of my first-ever tequila shot and everything! On this particular (and Cinco de Mayo!) day, La Cava was doing a promotion where if you buy a shot of Dwayne Johnson’s brand of tequila Teremana, he will reimburse you for a serving of guacamole. Would we have bought a shot if not for this...

In Which Jenn Needs A (Disney) Drink

Darn it, guys, these are not the posts I had planned for April. We were going to discuss my park wardrobe. We were gonna geek out together over my race costume. We were going to squee joyously over my trip plans. And today, I was going to drive the point home: tomorrow I go to Walt Disney World! Only I’m not. If you can imagine. Ah, well. We’re all coping as best we can. And one way I’ve been coping with missing Disney is with alcohol. Wait wait wait – not like that! Rather, I’ve been following along with...

In Which Jenn Selects Her Favorite WDW Bars

My cousin’s wife, by some great fortune, is a Disney parks nut. Whenever I hang out with my dad’s side of the family, we inevitably end up talking shop. That’s awesome. What’s less awesome: my cousin himself is not that into it. Oh, he goes on the trips, of course, but while his wife and I are chatting about which resort they’re staying at and FastPass+ strategy, he’s in the background, grumbling. “All I’m saying,” is his refrain, “is if I didn’t have kids, it’s not the vacation I would choose.” Fine. Not everything is for everyone. I have a...

If you want to catch up on my Dopey experience, you can read all the posts in this particular trip report here. Ready? Let’s go! And now we come to my final food review from our Dopey trip. Sigh.

Furnisher of my first ever tequila shot, this comparatively new restaurant holds a special place in my...

A Tale of Two Tequila Shots

Please join me once again in welcoming the amazing, death-defying Elizabeth as my special guest! JENN: So, tequila. Walt Disney World. Walt Disney World. Tequila. I think the connection is obvious. ELIZABETH: And the first time you chickened out! JENN: This is true. Let the record show that Elizabeth is twice the man I am. ELIZABETH: It was a good place to have a first tequila shot, though. JENN: And it was in La Cava del Tequila in Mexico, of course. So that was your first one? ELIZABETH: Yep! I’d had margaritas, but nothing with straight tequila. JENN:  I...

The Great Margarita Caper

JENN: So today I would like to talk about the Great Cucumber Margarita Caper, Or; Drinking 1/12 of the Way Around the World. MOON: You mean drinking our way INTO Mexico and then I’m drunk? JENN: Well, technically we drank IN Mexico, and then out of Mexico. But everywhere we went, we took Mexico with us. MOON: We drank outside of Mexico? JENN: Our initial idea, you see, was to engage in the traditional Drinking Around the World. Not too quickly, and sharing drinks, of course. We took our drink with us. MOON: Well, I know the plan was...
