Papas and Beer Ensenada Mexico

Hello from somewhere on the Pacific Ocean

Yesterday our cruise ship made it’s one stop to Ensenada, Mexico. We took our time getting ready and eating breakfast so when we finally got off the ship it was around 11:30am, which is almost lunch time, which obviously means we should hit up a bar.

I am a bit embarrassed to say I had never been to Papas and Beer before. It’s kind of a rite of passage for teens in certain southern California communities ifyaknowwhatImean.

Yesterday I finally had the chance to see what all the hype was about. IMG 0674 800x600 thumb Papas and Beer Ensenada Mexico

We were greeted with complimentary shots and then I nursed a vodka tonic. I’m not used to drinking when the sun’s out!

What happens in Ensenada stays in Ensenada, but let me say I now realize why Papas and Beer has such a rowdy reputation! It was very eventful.

Basically, anyone can pay for you to be molested and given a shot. Let’s leave it at that.

We left Papas and Beer in search of a quieter bar. We got a bucket of beers and chips.IMG 0712 600x800 thumb Papas and Beer Ensenada Mexico

But, I’m not a beer girl so I enjoyed a Coke Light.

Mariachis came and we made a few requests.IMG 0718 800x600 thumb Papas and Beer Ensenada Mexico

We also danced with new friends.

Before we headed back to the ship we stopped to stock up on lead. I mean, candy…IMG 0723 800x600 thumb Papas and Beer Ensenada Mexico

We got back to the room and I g-chatted Ben for a minute. I also was finally able to post. I’m having issues with my server reading my posts when I’m traveling lately (please hit me up if you know how to help with that stuff so I can fix it before Panama).IMG 0730 800x600 thumb Papas and Beer Ensenada Mexico

The buffet was closed at this point, but chips do not satisfy me for lunch so I made a mish-mosh of food from the fast food bar. It’s cole slaw, veggies, chicken breast and grilled onions. It worked.

I ate by myself because the girls ate while I was trying to blog. So, it’s kinda like I ate with you guys?IMG 0743 600x800 thumb Papas and Beer Ensenada Mexico

After a short nap we got ready for the fancy dinner.

I don’t know what it was but the rolls were ah-mazing! I had two with butta.

Lobster night! I love it!!

I got the banana cake, but also stole some of Susan’s Chocolate Melting Cake.

Then, we did a quick wardrobe change for dancing.

I enjoyed some citrus fruit for the vitamin C. It’s good for you wlEmoticon winkingsmile15 Papas and Beer Ensenada Mexico

This morning I woke up bright and early, way too early actually. The sun light peeked in and I couldn’t keep sleeping wlEmoticon sadsmile5 Papas and Beer Ensenada Mexico I took a walk on the track to get the day started.

I went back to check on the girls, but everyone was still comatose. So, I headed to breakfast solo. I started with oatmeal because I love it made in bulk (is that weird?).TheIMG 0787 800x600 thumb Papas and Beer Ensenada Mexico

I also got an omlete, fruit and French Toast.

Then, I spotted someone with a waffle so I went back for more! French toast, waffle and a panko crusted hard boiled egg.

It’s kinda sad that I ate 3 plates by myself. It’s also kinda delicious so there’s that.

So, if you’re keeping track the score is… many Papas & Beer beverages, a dozen mid-night room service chocolate chip cookies, 6 Pit Bull songs and one sprained ankle. Let’s leave it at that.

    I love the dress you wore to dinner! I am loving eggs right now and a panko crusted one sounds great.
    I hope your ankle is okay- good thing you already did the marathon!

    Wow, what a blast! Sometimes I think eating breakfast solo is better! I can get lost in my own head sooo easily (too easily?) so its nice to let it do its own thang early and get my day started right :)
